165. Yes, I was getting disgusted with reality TV creeping onto my favorite channels.
Even the Discovery affiliates were falling prey to the formula and I just wanted to throw the damn TV out a window. Animal Planet did that stupid ass "King of the Jungle" show...ugh! I didn't want to watch a bunch of idiots. I wanted to watch the animals.

When I moved and dish wasn't available (only cable), I opted out. Cable was hugely more expensive than dish and didn't even offer my favorite channels: Comedy Central, Cartoon Network (for Adult Swim), Animal Planet, etc. Guess what? Those channels are still not offered in our area. I'd have to pay--what?--$60 before I'd even get any decent educational channels and I still wouldn't be able to watch Comedy Central.
