About this comic

Dunno if you’ve seen anything on TLC lately, but holy crap… While AMC, TNT, USA and others break from their old molds, TLC seems hell-bent on doing nothing but garbage reality TV. It’s like MTV with music.

Wait…I sound like someone’s grandpa.

    Do they still call themselves The Learning Channel? I thought they dropped that awhile ago like a bunch of other channels. So many channels keep the call letters but drop the meaning they used to have.

    Agreed that it’s a station full of garbage though. I miss the days when The History Channel had actual history shows and the Discovery Channel was still about science and discovery. Then there’s that nonsense with SyFy…ugh.

    Get off my lawn!

    Wait! What?!? TLC stands for “The learning channel”? For real?
    Here in Germany they introduced it as a channel for girls/women. Kind of counterpart of DMAX.
    When I heard that I thought it was something ending on “chick” :)
    Its true garbage reality. Sometimes so fascinating, I really wonder that these people can walk straight or even breathe.

      Yup, it’s true. TLC used to have very educational shows for kids and adults… the same branding persisted through the years, but the programming took a nose dive into a pile of crap.

      The Learning Channel used to be run by NASA and broadcasted pure educational content. When it was sold off to a private firm it went to edu-tainment and then when they found out really stupid people love really stupid programing they shifted to that and changed their name to TLC.

    They actually quietly re-named it to no longer mean “The Learning Channel” as the programming shifted. I think it’s now “The Lifestyle Channel”.

    Most of the time I get a laugh out of your comics, but this one is… this one hits the truth on a whole nother level.

    Surely it teaches the exact opposite? It gives fame and attention to those who have screwed up their lives…

  6. Jack Fox says:

    So we should rename it then! Here is a few options…

    The Losers Channel
    Totally Lost Control
    Time Lost Central
    The Last (brain)Cell
    WTFAIWT? (Why the **** am I watching this. This could apply to most channels these days though.)

    Just to name a few!
