Gold Mining TV shows & the decline of History/Discovery/TLC and cable tv in general

I'm not sure what the obsession is with gold mining these days, but you've likely noticed how shit cable tv has become over the years. TLC used to mean The Learning Channel. Honey Boo Boo was the nail in that coffin. History channel is now just pawn shops and pickin' and rednecks. "Reality" shows about moonshine and hoarding and being addicted to pizza dominate cable programming - they are cheaper to produce than paying a writer to come up with something original.

Make no mistake - most of these shows have writers, directors and editors etc, but they aren't as highly paid as the team that produces something like CSI. You also don't really have to worry about paying actual actors. It's our fault really because we watch all this shit, but it's a sad reflection on ourselves.

Anyway - the gold shows are getting a bit ridiculous...

Gold Rush: Alaska

Yeah, mining for gold in Alaska sounds rough...
but how about mining for gold at the bottom of the Bering Sea?
