- Adored by the Network: Drugs, Inc and Explorers.
- Network Decay:
- The channel traditionally focuses on historical documentaries and nature shows. In the early 2010s they began adding many reality shows such as Locked Up Abroad, Wicked Tuna, and Life Below Zero. They still show traditional documentries though.
- When the main channel began slipping they created "Nat Geo Wild" specifically for animal related documentaries and shows. Now Nat Geo is pretty much human-exclusive.
