* HilariousInHindsight:
** A decision to pull the plug on a Kennedy Special because it didn't meet the network standards with its "dramatic interpretation". This from the network that has played ''Series/BandOfBrothers'', ''Film/GoodMorningVietnam'', and has shows like Monster Quest and UFO Hunters.
** In what can also count as a FunnyAneurysmMoment for some, ''WebAnimation/InventionPioneersOfNote'', an old flash movie and parody of History Channel documentaries, now comes off as almost eerily prophetic of the NetworkDecay the channel would go through.
* NetworkDecay: Listed in NetworkDecay/TotalAbandonment, and neatly summed up by [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/21/2a/4e/212a4e013b5df20bb5d7f6034d6f3259.jpg this picture]]. Shows like Series/IceRoadTruckers, The Nostradamus Effect, Series/PawnStars, Series/AmericanPickers and especially Series/AncientAliens tend to have little if any historical value. Though ''Series/PawnStars'' and ''Series/AmericanPickers'' do feature items with ''some'' historical value compared the [[FollowTheLeader other Pawn Shop Show on TruTV]], but still. The network {{Hand Wave}}s this by its new motto claiming "History Is Made Every Day".
