Discovery Channel is a cable television channel which began broadcasting in June [[TheEighties 1985]]. It used to be a ScienceShow oriented network. Nowadays, [[NetworkDecay it's kind of hard to tell]]. Most notable for being the network with ''Series/MythBusters'', ''Series/ManVsWild'', ''Series/DeadliestCatch'' and ''Series/DirtyJobs''. Also has a [[ThreateningShark Shark Week]] every year since 1987, usually in mid-summer. Their current slogan is ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=at_f98qOGY0 literally]]'' {{The World is Just Awesome}}. They often employ the DocuDrama approach to their shows.

[[DuelingShows Often seen as competing with]] Creator/TheHistoryChannel; both in the days when the two networks primarily aired educational programming and today in [[SnarkBait the race to become Network Decay's poster child]].

In 2006 TLC along with DiscoveryChannel (During the Discover Kids Block) used to have a weekday morning block aimed at children called "Ready Set Learn" that only ran for one year. The block starred a penguin named Pazz along with his mother and would have a short animated segments starring the Penguin between commercials breaks for shows that aired on that block.
