It isn't easy to build an network on eight shows (with half of them arguably being "reality shows").

Discovery Networks is struggling to remain relevant in a world where there are lots of very focused newcomers. It was a whole lot easier when there were only a few networks.

I certainly agree with you. Time will tell.

Really sad too. Discovery used to have some really great channels (Discovery Times specifically) but I guess we have to evolve to find more Honey Boo Boo shows. :rolleyes:

I don't care as long as they don't mess with the Science Channel. It's easily my favorite of the Discovery Channels.
If it ain't in HD, it ain't worth watching!
