Back in the 90's i can name at least 5 channels with 1 good show on it

today---- none

lets make the list shall we

nickelodeon

rugrats ren and stimpy catdog all that wild and crazy kids angry beavers all grown up ahh real monsters doug hey arnold the legend of the hidden temple double dare double dare2000 are you afraid of the dark? kennon and kel

-------------------------------------------------------------- today

nick-icarly spongbob fanboy and chum chum naked band brothers zoey 101 ---lame teenage drama shows i swear

abc family -- lets just say night of the twisters among many good movies came on as well as afv(americas funniest home videos)

tnt -chips the flinstones scooby doo

now the later 2 ---all they show is reality shows and drama

cartoon network --well their still the same so -ii guess theres one

i guess the biggest loser is nickelodeon here

because they do not even have half as many not even 1 4th of the good shows they had back then

makes me wonder why should people have to pay if they dont want to show all these good shows any more

There is, the cartoons just are weirdly scheduled now. I liked when things were scheduled in the mornings, after school, and weekends. Now it just seems random day to day.

But now I watch Anthony Bourdain (which is done now) the Science channel, comedy central, and that's pretty much it. I try to watch Cartoon Network but if it isn't adventure time, Regular show, or adult swim, then it's usually not good.

Icarly, hannamontana, zack and cody are not dramas, they're like teen sitcoms. they have nothing in common with women behind bars, cops, and law and order.

There's no easy way to say this, so I'll go right ahead and say it.. if you truly believe that, my dear TC, you are a child with child-like tastes. If 90s cartoons and tween dramas are your be-all and end-all, I don't think you're allowed to have a say on the quality of TV nowadays.

I was watching the other day and this show came on during the commercials. It seemed ok. But then I turned it off.
