I say make it the weather documentary channel and split off a REAL WEATHER channel. I like the documentaries and all but I don't tune into the weather channel to watch documentaries. I tune into the weather channel to watch weather. Maybe it's time for fox or someone to come up with a real weather channel to take on the weather "documentary" channel?
The weather channel has gotten so bad that I barely watch it. They play the same rerun of Lifeguard for the 500th time this month.
I watch Fox News and that is better than the weather channel. They could have 24 hour live programming by hiring non-meteorologists to read the weather off a TelePrompTer or a script and use the forecasts prepared by the NWS.
