* AncientAstronauts: There is a disturbing number of shows on the channel that subscribe to crazy alien theories of human history. Seemingly, it's barely second-fiddle to History's reality line-up. Though it's been moved to H2 now you can still catch ''AncientAliens'' airing occasionally.

* FanNickname: The Hitler Channel in the early 2000s, though it doesn't apply in the current "conspiracy and reality TV" era.
** Fans have started calling it the Hysteria Channel as a result of its new focus on apocalypse/alien-related conspiracy theories.
