I switched on A&E tonight for the first time in a long time. I think Disney owns A&E and the History Channel and maybe a few others of these cable TV stations -- maybe also BravoTV? It dawned on me that several years ago I used to watch A&E fairly often, but tonight when I switched it on, I realized why I no longer watch. I checked the A&E schedule on the web and found even more reasons not to watch any more. A&E, which used to be the Arts & Entertainment network has abandoned the Arts and considers enterainment to be crime shows and room makeovers and other things that you'd expect to find elsewhere (and do). If they are going to continue to abandon the A and degrade the E, I think they should change the name.
