History According to the History Channel

It is not secret that I hold the History Channel in low esteem. I would trust Wikipedia before something said on the History Channel.

Demonstrating that History Channel has a narrow view of what is "history" are the below statistics. Not sure if there are accurate, but they do seem to represent the kind of shows they produce.

HT: Scot McKnight.


  1. Well, gee, aren't ghosts and aliens history?

  2. Lol, yeah I've asked myself a few times why their programming has nothing to do with history when they are showing trucker,sharp shooter contests, junk collectors and so on.

  3. I do like Pawn Stars and American Pickers though. :)
