We have several cable channels devoted almost entirely to the topic Promote various paranormal phenomena as if they were real. I am confused by how popular this stuff can be, but I have little doubt about it it is very popular and that’s why we see so much of it. Sure, some of it is cool, but how does one come to take it as seriously as many people seem to do? Maybe it’s because they watch a lot of these shows.
I’ve tended to focus on the History Channel when I criticize this stuff because I like to remember when they put on shows historyand because they’ve been on this paranormal trend longer than most other channels. I also noticed that there is something that seems more conscious in their approach. Even so, I’m not sure I can say for sure that you are the worst offender. There seem to be a lot of good candidates out there, and I haven’t seen nearly enough of them to know how they compare.
I recently noticed that the travel channel has apparently even given up on the pretext of showing everything relevant to travel and gone completely paranormal. I made a goal of scrolling through the cable’s onscreen guide for several consecutive days, and it was paranormal the whole time. There was nothing to do with travel.
Here’s my question: if this stuff is as popular as it seems, why are these channels keeping their original names at all? Why don’t they all rename themselves as paranormally focused channels? Wouldn’t that attract more viewers? Most people won’t say to themselves, “I really feel like watching grown men pee their pants while they chase ghosts with bad thermal cameras. I wonder what’s on the Travel Channel.” And most of the people who search for stuff while traveling probably don’t have much patience with all that paranormal junk. Why not a monster channel, a ghost channel, a “old” aliens Channel?
I recently watched one of these shows on the Travel Channel for a few minutes because I thought there might be a travel component. My guess, based on the title, was that they could focus on things like haunted tours that paranormally fused with travel. There was no travel-related content at all. Just before I turned it off, they ran a commercial or the Travel Channel that gave the impression that it was focused on traveling how it used to be. It’s almost like the people in charge of promoting the channel are unaware of the content displayed on the channel. Or maybe it was a PhD from a few years ago that nobody updated.
And then it hit me. Who is the undisputed king of having a name that has nothing to do with content at all? No, no freethought blogs! I think of MTV. It’s been at least a decade since their programming had a lot to do with music videos, but they haven’t renamed themselves the terrifying reality show network. Why? I suspect that her name is too precious to people (like me) old enough to remember what they used to be. I don’t think any of the other channels could claim this (except maybe the History Channel) but I wonder if that is a reason why they stick with names that have nothing to do with their programming.
