History Channel?

What is up with the History Channel nowadays?

The only thing on The History channel is the Ax Men and shows about Aliens!

Why is the show Ax Men constantly on the History Channel? The closest comparison i can think of is how radio stations play the same song over and over due to payola. What does this show have to do with History? I should have saw the signs of the end when they premiered that Ice trucker show. With programming such as these, It seems to be an ill fated attempt at trying to compete with the Discovery channel and TLC. People watch the history channel for history, not documentaries about extreme jobs...

Granted, the history channel has always showed programs about space and aliens, but it has recently gone over board. Alien contact has not been proven as HISTORICAL fact. These shows probably drive up the ratings, but again, this has nothing to do with HISTORY.

As a teenager, I remember watching the history channel and actually learning things. Perhaps those days are just that; History...
