Boom de yada!

Discovery Channel is a cable television channel which began broadcasting in June 1985. It used to be a Science Show oriented network. Nowadays, it's kind of hard to tell. Most notable for being the network with MythBusters, Man vs. Wild, Deadliest Catch and Dirty Jobs. Also has a Shark Week every year since 1987, usually in mid-summer. Their current slogan is literally The World is Just Awesome (for which it is the Trope Namer). They often employ the Docudrama approach to their shows.

Often seen as competing with The History Channel; both in the days when the two networks primarily aired educational programming and today in the race to become Network Decay's poster child.
