TLC - too much reality and real estate porn.

Showtime - dropped due to cost and never missed it.

Fox News - no HD, no dice. Watch CNN for news now.

I've also removed all shopping channels, sports channels, and non-HD network channels from my channel listing.

Don't watch any more:
MTV/VH1 - Already addressed
SciFi - No science fiction, too much wrestling.
MSNBC - I delete it from every hotel TV if I find it.

Watch a LOT:
BBCA - Primeval, Doctor Who, Top Gear, and stepping up to HD next month (July 20)

I haven't really stopped watching any cable channels in the past five years. But there are channels that I don't watch often. I only watch MTV to see shows likes like True Life and lately I have been watching 16 and Pregnant. I watch VH1 in the mornings to see videos.

G4 - lots of reruns and crap programming that has nothing to do with gaming

Vh1 - 90% bottom feeder reality tv crap, I don't understand why these shows get good ratings!

CMT - more reality tv crap, less music

USA - WWE sucks big time now

I miss shows like The Operation. If I want to see idiots trying to raise a dozen kids, I'll check Radaronline. Even the Science Channel has a lot of fluff now.
I haven't watched ABC, NBC or CBS for many years, other than Dancing With the Stars with my wife. The commercials for their "comedies" look like the same tired crap, and I don't care about dramas where everyone is sleeping with everyone else. The only other shows I watch are Monk, House and South Park.
My wife watches all the gay shows on Bravo.
