Do you think the history channel is all about history?

Is the history channel the right name based on the shows it airs? If not, what should it be and why?

    I possed this question because of your response to the ancient aliens question. As an anthropologist and archaeologist, shows like that offend me and aren't history but science fiction. As sad as it is, the most historical show is pawn stars.

    Well, I would argue that the masses would like to watch quality programming about history. The trouble is, true history makes the masses bitter and will ultimately defeat the purpose of a network putting the shows on in the first place: advertising.
