    sounds even worse than the original pitch for Planet Green.
    the schedule sounds rather muddled, with a little bit of Travel Channel, a little bit of Discovery Channel rejects.

    As it turns out, going "green" was just a passing fad, but what is more "American" today than more reality shows.

    Sounds like it is still going to be the "Botton of the Discovery Barrel" channel. There are plenty enough stories of great American entrepreneurs and charactors but I doubt that is what we will get.

    I guess they found out that there was not enough green ($) in green (ecology).

    Planet Green already seemed to be Discovery's version of the Travel Channel, so it is about time they change the name to reflect that.

    Actually I liked the "idea" of Planet Green, I just didn't find it entertaining. I didn't find it preachy at all actually.

    Yeah... I liked the subject matter, but rarely watched it.

    I have ABSOLUTELY no interest whatsoever in Destination America! :)

    I don't know who said it, but at one point a poster here suggested renaming everything to "Stuff" with a number. That might not be too far from the truth in terms of content.

    This is third time the channel has flipped. Before Planet Green it was a home decoration channel.

    You read my mind! I can't remember the last time I tuned in to planet green and saw anything other than "paranormal this" or "ghost that." Not sure what that ever had to do with "green" but I say scrap the entire channel and give us BBC HD!!!!!!
