I was once a avid viewer of TechTV when it first came out and was struggling to exist. I was glad when it suceeded because I use to move around alot and it was nice to be able to watch The Screensavers in relativly small cable markets (like Danville, KY) Then it seemed all of a sudden, the programming quality went down the crapper. I always thought that the channel "had too much on its plate" so to speak. It kept the "flagship" programming, but changed formats/hosts so rapidly that it seemed to destroy it. Too hard to keep up with all those changes...Cute girls, though.
I don't know if I like the idea of Comcast buying out TechTV though---I would almost rather have AOL-TW buy it...But I am glad it wasn't MS. The channel has been running so many MS/N ads lately I thought they had.
BTW, I remember when Leo was the host of Call for Help....I really enjoyed that show when he was there. So they had to replace him with Chris Pirillo...what the hell happened to Chris anyway?
