What Has Happened To The History Channel?

I can remember the days when the History Channel was home to some quality programming.  When history was actually mentioned on the channel.  But now it's gone the way of MTV, airing one terrible reality show after another in a race to the bottom to appeal to the lowest common denominator.  Just look at their line up:

American Restoration
American Pickers

Pawn Stars

Big Shrimpin'
Hairy Bikers
Ice Road Truckers
What is this garbage?  How do any of these shows have even have the remotest relevance to history?  This is an absolute joke.  This is nothing but gawking at the lower class.  The channel should change its name to the Red Neck Reality Show Channel.  Anyone employed by the History Channel should be filled with shame.
