I feel for you. The same exact thing happened a couple years back on the Discovery channel.

I do have the reason for the changes. It might be a little politically incorrect.

The networks were not happy with ratings so they decided to "attempt" to double fold their viewing audience. And the audience they wanted to attract was women. And if they want to get women in the audience, well...

They have to FEMINIZE all the programming to get ratings up.

And yes that means animal cops and ghosts, medical mysteries arts and crafts , reality TV. and the list goes on.

As for the original masculine programming they started out with, well, Masculin is not " In " these days on cable networks such as animal planet. So we are just plain out of luck.

There, I said it... But it is so true.

Well they figured if they had a show about training dogs, it would be more beneficial for the average house owner, rather then showing wild and crazy safari adventures, and nothing has ever been the same ever since Steve Irwin's death. I myself was an avid viewer of Crocodile Hunter, it was a very informative show.
