Most of what's on Comedy Central anymore is total crap. So yeah, Tosh 2.0 fits that just fine. I really do think History channel has moved away from their defining genre a little. While I"ll agree that loggers have a great deal to do with our history the ones in the show are no more than a flannel shirt soap opera. Pawn Stars while very entertaining misses the mark too. I wont even go into surviv..errmm...I mean Top Shot. I think all this is THC's way of getting away from the almost constant barrage of Hitler and WWII shows. They all still on the History international. AS a whole HI has become more of a real history channel leaving the other wide open for more programs that are not rooted in history or at the least rooted in a very loose sand.

We happen to enjoy Tosh.0 - and he is the highest rated show on Comedy Central that isn't a fake news broadcast.

I enjoy Pawn Stars for the history as well. I have learned a ton from watching that show. So it's always on the DVR.

I watched a few episodes of Mail Call, and I like the Gunny, but that show fell into the same problem that Future Weapons ran into. There is only so much you can tell people about a weapon system or a vehicle. Unless they can play with it, or drive it, shoot it or take it apart themselves, it kind of just becomes "And here is product X, this is what it does, here's me shooting/triggering/driving/testing it" Ta Dah!!

Anything having to do with Trucking / Logging or Baking is a complete waste of my life. Sorry.

I know how to drive a truck, I choose not to do it in stupid conditions and risk my life.

I know how to fall a tree properly, I don't need to see people trying to race their way through a stand of trees to be first to market and endanger the lives of their crew in the process.

Top Everything (Chef, Cake Maker, Resturant, Shot, Model, Bachelor/Bachelorette, Singer, Dancer, Comedian ) can suck it. They ALL make me want to scratch an itch in the back of my mouth with the barrel of a loaded shotgun.

Honest to God there are very few "good' shows on anymore, which is why we find ourselves going back through Amazon and Netflix finding old series that rated high and watching them instead.

Currently loving: The Wire; Dirty Sexy Money; Reaper (which is campy fun ) and shows on Showtime like Dexter.

Other than Justified & Chicago Code (which won't last) I can't think of anything that is recording "new" nightly that I care about.

When are Burn Notice, Leverage and Marshall Marshal coming back?

I actually liked LTCG's show more than I thought I would. It sort of reminds me of Dirty Jobs without all the animal poo.
Top Shot doesn't really belong on History Channel. I not going to complain though. Anything that puts firearms and shooting in a positive light is good. Plus I always pay close attention when the expert coaching goes on. I might actually learn something. The announcer guy is starting to wear a bit thin though.
Tosh.0 is pretty annoying, but what do you expect, it's on Comedy Central. Annoying is their mission.

I use my Netflix almost exclusively since I don't really keep hours that allow me to watch television (and I have basic cable for the same reason). Being a musician does have its down points.

However, I started watching The Walking Dead (thank you Netflix) and Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Zombies, and then gladiators and boobs....what more can a man need?

I'm tired of all the CSI, Law and Order type shows. They've beaten those to death. And I agree with most that all the reality shows have exceeded their usefulness (if they had any at all).

Most currently airing shows suck. I get about 65 channels and most of the time there's nothing worth watching. Fortunately it's almost baseball season.
