  •  Apparently the Orcs have taken over NatGeo (13+ / 0-)

    I was on a job with someone who directed shows for them in the past. From what I was told, there was a big shift in the executive layer at NatGeo channel, and the new folks decided to embrace the worst elements of reality TV whole hog. She stopped working for them because the shows were awful and the people she was working for were awful. And apparently they haven't figure out that their ratings decline was because they stopped putting quality stuff on the air.

    Every time this subject comes up, I think, "Yeah, remember 20 years ago when people were saying, 'Hey, we don't need PBS anymore! Quality cable programming like Discovery and TLC and A&E will do that job now.'" Riiiiiight....
