On Veterans Day, the History Channel is running a marathon of Pawn Stars episodes. I remember when they used to have very educational programming. Thanks History Channel for catering to the idiots of America. Do you miss the old History Channel?

I hate, hate, hate Pawn Stars. "Lemne call a friend and he can take a look at it" Guy can have something worth $150,000 bucks, and they'll offer like $1,500 for it. I realize they need to make a profit, but damn. American Pickers is just a

bad. It seems like they just pick out junk. I miss their documentaries. I also miss the old Animal Planet. They had some interesting wildlife documentaries and shows

History used to have really good dc documentaries about the mob, Al Capone, and serial killers. I am fascinated by them. Why someone can do something so evil and have no remorse.

I really enjoy Pawnstars. Rick knows a whole lot about a whole lot.

Nothing against Pawn Stars, but put it on a different channel. Can't us history buffs have ONE channel?

I've never watched it (I don't have cable), but if I did, I'd be very disappointed in them. From what I hear, though, it sounds like I'd be pretty disappointed in them most of the time.

Occasionally, Pawn Stars reveals some very historical info. But nothing beats anything about the Luftwaffe. :0)

Would've been nice if they did it in primetime when most people are home.

That's very true. Did you try history2, as in their second channel?

Pawn stars isn't horrible. It's just a yuppied up version of antiques road show. At least it isn't ancient aliens or hunting for big foot poops.

I think they were abducted by aliens.

Seriously!! They couldn't run some stuff on WWII, Vietnam or any other event in which veterans contributed to this great country?

I get that they're as much about history as MTV is about music, but it's pretty incredible that no one in charge thought that they should use the entire days to air shows about wars and topics related to veterans.

It'd be nice if every TV station altered their prime time line up to feature a show on veterans or at least an episode that relates to it.
