Just give up on TV and buy these shows on dvd if you can, just walk away from the tv, it's absolute garbage these days, full of stuff about celebrities and the latest product or news that isn't really news but just fillers and flashy ads.
I'm going to stick up for TV. Granted, there is a tremendous amount of terrible stuff on, a lot of it isn't worth anybody's time. Even channels like History Channel are usually bad, mostly because the lack of diverse topics. That doesn't mean that people don't still make great television. Granted, your tastes and your threshold for the profane might not agree with modern TV, you seem to like comedy-variety shows and westerns, neither of which you can find today.
the history channel is one of the worst propaganda peddler's out there. if they are not pushing down your throat how awesome our military is they are taking you into back woods areas to find imaginary monsters. they push new age mystism(sp) under the guise of alternative history, the history channel has more shows relating to ufo's loaded with conjecture and no proof than any other station that i recieve(basic cable here). at the moment i currently only watch some TVLand fo nostalgia and an hour of cartoon network every so often when i need my family guy fix. really the only history they portray in any detail is WWII( and even then its all skewed), if i didnt know better i would say the producers have an unhealthy infatuation with hitler..
