Some changes can be chalked up to the changing landscape of TV. As the number of channels goes up, networks re-align themselves to try and hold some of their market. That, or the parent companies who might own seven or more cable channels each shuffle stuff for "synergy" or to reduce redundancy. Competition with new media is prevalent as well -- classic reruns give way to DVD box sets (and the ''real'' killer, {{Netflix}} and similar streaming services), music-video channels give way to Website/YouTube and iPods, and info-dumping all-text channels give way to the data display in a digital cable box, smartphone apps (once again, the ''real'' killer) or some new-fangled webernet site. Other times, it's just shifting to whatever the network feels will attract the biggest audience -- [[MoneyDearBoy and the audience that lets them charge the most for ads]] (especially the lucrative young adult demographic, needless to say).

See MagazineDecay for the print equivalent. See also ArtifactTitle, TheyChangedItNowItSucks, ScrewedByTheNetwork, and AdoredByTheNetwork. PublicMediumIgnorance may be a cause for some of the listed networks. If it starts overlapping with politics, then it can cross over into StrawmanNewsMedia.

StrawmanNewsMedia. Can lead to DeaderThanDisco if the the post-decay channel's viewers stop watching it and join in on the bashing.
