    You mean G4TV. ZNET TV and they rebranded it to TechTV. The man from Microsoft sold TechTV to Comcast who ruined it.

    I find it very appropriate ... these are the "beginning in May" additions.

    Hum, I actually like the sound of Nostalgia Channel. Half the new stuff on TV is remakes of old fav's anyway so that would be a perfect channel for an old duffer like me hehe.

    I'm an Old f*** too, and I'd love to see most of, if not all of, the shows listed on http://www.entertainmentscene.com/top_tv_shows_50s.html. I have recorded tons of "Newhart", "The Honeymooners" and "Married With Children" from WGN, and still enjoy them. I haven't watched a modern sitcom since MWC.

    OK, now that you mention the 'characters'... I think I have a good description... part Antiques Roadshow, part American Chopper.

    I gave Pawn Stars a shot once. It felt far too forced, scripted, and manufactured for me.

    It's "Antiques Road Show --White Trash Edition".

    I rather like it. :lol:

    +1.

    After waxing poetic about probably never seeing it, I just returned from my sister's house. She watches it along with her husband. I think he likes it quite a bit. They had a couple of episodes still on the DVR.

    I agree with Hoosier, far to forced abd scripted, not that I expected anything different.

    Like I said in an earlier post this isn't a criticism of any one who watches the show.

    I stand by my original contention that it's inclusion on History Channel is a sad commentary on what the History Channels has become.

    Though I understand in today's Cable/Sat/Internet world the need to diversify to please a more general audience and hunt for more eyeballs.

    I hate when they do that. I'd rather have 50 channels going after unique target audiences than 250 channels all trying to reach the mainstream viewer.

    If I were DirecTV, I would have debuted Lifetime-HD this week due to the Season Premiere of "Drop Dead Diva" this weekend, and then most likely wait until D10 is fixed to offer the rest...

    Obviously I'm not DirecTV... ;)

    Not what I had in mind. I looked at their programs and 90% are old shows.

    I'm searching for a network that will focus on the baby boomers as they head into their senior years - programs focus on their financial, health and shelter needs.

    Believe it been estimated that a third of the nation, will be senior citizens by the end of the decade. So don't anyone dare try to say there ain't a marketplace for this kind of network.

    Don't know the details. Wonder if anyone wrote an article on Tech-TV collapse.
