YMMV: Animal Planet

  • Network Decay: The show's decreased its focus on wild animal documentaries (and to a lesser extent, Animal Planet Heroes) and shifted more towards Tastes Like Diabetes shows about cute puppies, slightly-linked to animal shows such as Tanked that would be more at home on Discovery, shows about crazy tree huggers like Whale Wars and "Blonde vs. Bear", supernatural-themed shows like Lost Tapes, "The Haunting" and "Finding Bigfoot" that are usually full of Narm but can occasionally veer into Nightmare Fuel, and shows that outright demonize animals such as Infested or Fatal Attractions. About the only show that would fit right in with the old Animal Planet paradigm is River Monsters.
    • They now have a show called 'Ice Cold Gold', which is about American gold-miners trying to find gold in Greenland. No animals in sight. They also now have Wild West Alaska, which is about nothing but custom guns and shooting 'killer' bears.
