IMO Weather Nation is a 2nd rate weather channel!
Like most here, I also prefer the original Weather Channel without all the reality shows! I want ALL weather 24/7!
However having said that I really only watch the Weather Channel during severe weather...Tornados, Hurricanes...etc!

I find it odd that TWC is coming under fire for trying to be business savvy when it comes to "off hours" by showing reality TV. I am probably one of those people who would like to see it return to all weather all the time as well, but reality TV has dropped into virtually all commercial television.
Are we to cry for the banishment of MSNBC because they run prison shows, or Headline News for going to shows like What would you do? or Forensic Files? Even CNN goes into rerun mode during off hours where actual live news takes a back seat. Fox News has their own rerun agenda so where is the outcry for the demise of news channels.
I hear all the blah blah about History no longer being just about its title, Discovery not living up to its name, yada yada. Fact is, Reality TV draws more eyeballs, even in the overnight hours, than infomercials. Until viewers can go strictly a la carte (which is coming to a provider near you in the not too distant future), this is a fact of TV life. One can scream and holler about Reality on TWC, but it is everywhere, even on networks.
When nothing goes right, turn left.
