Of course everyone here already knew that. ;) No room for TTC, but just replaced one of their channels with Al Gore's new channel "Current TV". :mad:

Current TV, the new independent youth network, is led by company chair Al Gore and CEO Joel Hyatt and will represent young adults in "their world, in their voice," says a company release.

Tennis channel's commentators have brains. You can't say the same thing about Espn announcers.

Newsworld channel is one of the best, but they cancelled it!

Useless Currentv has a stupid interview of Paris Hilton's friend. :o

Since just a few days ago, I guess. I still don't get the point of the channel. Yesterday they showed a clip of a guy who has a Michael Jordan/Nike shoe fettish and they showed his shoe collection and showed him going to the store and buying a pair of Nikes. Then they shoed a short story about a woman from Texas who became a Baptist pastor and is working at a Baptist church in Wisconsin. :scratch:
