** ''Series/LifeAfterPeople'' notably averts this, and just talks about what happens to buildings and animals after the apocalypse. [[{{Subversion}} It goes out of its way]] specifically ''not'' to mention [[MacGuffin how people disappeared]]. It also assumes whatever killed them left everything else intact (not even bones of then living people are left, though older bodies remain), but pets are left behind (which in many cases is a FateWorseThanDeath).

* ''Series/{{Alone}}''''Series/{{Alone}}'' - A dozen survivalists are each deposited separately in a remote locale, with only a handful of tools, and cameras they they film themselves with. They then operate [[TheAloner in total isolation from any other people]] to see who can remain ''in situ'' the longest without succumbing to starvation, [[NatureIsNotNice environmental hazards]], or [[GoMadFromTheIsolation sheer loneliness]].

[[NetworkDecay Then]] the channel went through a phase where it was obsessed with ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode'', aliens and [[ApocalypseHow the apocalypse]]. Nowadays, the lineup has favored documentary-style reality shows: Some (''Series/PawnStars'', ''Series/AmericanPickers'') occasionally have something do to with history, especially Americana. Others (''Series/AxMen'', ''Series/IceRoadTruckers'', the [[CulturalTranslation American version of]] ''Series/{{Top Gear|US}}'') [[NetworkDecay don't]]. On most days, there's almost no history-related programming on the schedule. You might get lucky if it's a holiday or other day of historical significance. A sister channel, ''H2'' (formerly ''History International''), was closer to the original History Channel in terms of "historical" programming, though it did adopt a lot of the paranormal programming as well once the name changed. It was replaced in 2016 by ''Viceland'', a joint venture of A&E Networks of the Canadian Vice Media centered around documentaries. Also in the mix is ''Military History'', which reruns History's massive backlog of military-oriented programming; it's fairly obscure (not many TV providers carry it) and doesn't broadcast in HD at all, so who knows how much longer it's going to be around.

[[NostalgiaFilter Besides tales of old]], the station is also noted for its weekly show of Series/ModernMarvels which details the history of everyday and not-so-everyday things. History also occasionally plays movies (including original made-for-TV movies), usually either pertaining to a historical event (two of the movies History Channel commissioned were about [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy JFK]] and the infamous Hatfields-[=McCoys=] feud, the latter being one of the most well-received television movies the year it aired) or are historical/cultural artifacts in themselves (it once aired ''Film/DirtyHarry'' for example).

The History Channel is a network that dedicates itself (or [[NetworkDecay once dedicated itself, depending on who you ask]]) to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin history]]. The network was particularly famous for its sometimes [[AdoredByTheNetwork excessive]] coverage of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII leading some to call it [[FanNickName The Hitler Channel]].
