I really don’t know what the History Channel was thinking with their latest show Ice Road Truckers. What does it have to do with History? I guess they got the idea from The Deadliest Catch. There really isn’t much drama with a show like this, so the Reality Show probably won’t get watched much. These kind of tactics are what ended up making the Discovery Channel suck. Like I’ve said before, history is not boring to people that like history. So why do they want to abandon their audience? For a bigger more mainstream audience that isn’t into history. The History Channel was the one of the last stations not to get a reality show, but they finally caved in. They really have had some good programming, but I’m sure who ever is in charge now is going take it down the crapper.
I’m glad the Internet is going to kill TV, they are going to have to deal with people watching what shows are they see as the best and when they want.
