TV Unguided

The TV Guide Channel, the one with the scrolling screens of listings of what's on the other channels, announced today that they're going to stop showing scrolling screens of listings of what's on the other channels. I'm guessing that they've discovered that most cable and satellite subscribers already have a channel or feature that gives us that information -- and in a searchable, easier-to-use format -- making TVGC redundant at best.

Instead of the listings, they're going to develop original programming, probably with a new name for the channel. I'd suggest Yet Another Channel You'll Never Watch.
