New programming sucks

What happen to you guy? You used to have such cool shows, and now it just the same 10 shows over and over. Are you going back to the old format soon? I do not like the new current TV.

    I agree... the new format of Current TV is awful. As a loyal fan I keep hoping that they'll return back to "normal" after this "phase" is over. I find myself totally uninterested in the new programming and my old favorites, (the ones still on air at least), seem forced and are sometimes painful to watch... Infomania lost a viewer when they started using canned laughter. I read somewhere that the same guy who changed (ruined) MTV is now in charge of Current.... it seems as much:( The old current was exciting groundbreaking television.... this new current is just another cable channel with nothing on. So sad:(

    I agree. I've stopped watching the network. They're just like every other station now and have completely sold out.

    From Wikipeida

    "In July 2009, Current TV, because of financial reasons and the failed IPO abandoned, did a series of changes. CEO Joel Hyatt resigned to a new Vice President position and was replaced by Mark Rosenthal, the former COO and president of MTV Networks, with a plan to reform Current TV to more traditional programing. The Huffington Post's Lisa Derrick predicted that Current TV would undergo a transformation similar to MTV's transformation, during Mark Rosenthal 1990s tenure at MTV, from MTV's multi-minute music video format to longer 30 minute/1 hour programing. Ultimately its assorted pod format was discontinued in lieu of traditional 30 minute block programing. Some elements of the pod format survive inside the themed 30 minute programing. In July 2009, 80 in house staff were laid off, about 25% of Current's staff, and plans were announced to air licensed TV series and films and other content that is not produced by Current in-house or by the VC2 system. Hollywood Reporter's Andrew Wallenstein predicts Current will make its targeted demographic a decade older from early 20s to early 30s, and add more less-serious entertainment programing to its then mostly news and reality/documentary format"

    So basically, it really is becoming the new MTV. This sucks. MTV sucks. I'm going to miss current.

    It really sucks that things have gone this way. I like the pod style. You saw different interesting things. I liked the Unseen whatever and the shows on burning man. The fun adventurous shows. If i wanted to watch cop, I'd watch cops! Long way round was cool. Vanguard is cool. But this new shit sucks!

    My husband and I no longer watch current tv. the main reason we liked it so much was because of the viewer pods. It was the one source that we trusted to tell us what was really going on because of the groundbreaking podcasts by the people in the middle of the events. You can't watch any news channel to get unbiased information anymore. This new programming is such bullshit!

    I've tried on 8-9 attempts to get some answers to some questions I had. I've had 0 answers to my questions. If that is Current's attempt to keep people watching their station, that a piss poor way of doing it! Pretty poor way of "promoting their channel.

    I followed Vanguard religiously during the first year or two of the show. I stopped watching it when Current TV stopped Vanguard Podcast and its website transformed into a flash galore (which renders my then slow computer useless.)

    News of Countdown with Keith Olbermann reminded me of Current TV and how much I loved its programs, especially Vanguard. It looks like I don't have to get a cable subscription or beg Current to offer paid online subscription to live stream and full episodes anymore.

    If Current would turn into MTV, it looks like all is lost and there's no hope for quality content anymore.

    Thanks for the heads up guys.

    I used to watch Current all the time. While I was getting ready, while I was doing random things around the house, before bed. It was such a great way to get a lot of information about a wide variety of topics. I loved it!

    Now, I can't sit through a full 1/2 hour of it. It's the same shows over and over again, none of which are interesting (aside from Vanguard). I'm thrilled Keith Olbermann is going to be on, but that's really all Current has going for it anymore. It's so sad to see what it has become.

    Seriously, now that Countdown with Keith Olbermann is up and going it is imperative that Current TV backs him up with a solid line up of serious, analytical, informative programming. The newtwork should acquire other strong TV personalities to broadcast follow up shows, broaden Current's news coverage and excellent journalism. Vanguard is a great show. Nobody wants more MTV!

    If current had not changed its "viewer" generated content and added some normal programming, the channel would cease as it simply was not financially sustainable. It averaged less then 20,000 viewers during prime time. It is less then the number of people who attend some Friday night football games in small town America. While you may not care for the new programming (which I believe is better then handheld viewer home videos - not every idiot with a digital camera is a film maker), the alternative would have been no Current TV.

    More podcasts, less repetition! There are now 9,999 slots for cable channels. No exaggeration! WHY do you want to be like the other 9,998? There already IS (or WAS, depending on who you talk to) an MTV. Current shouldn't evolve based on anyone's past model, it should break with them, be the iconoclast, think well beyond the "trim down, toughen up, the past paradigm is good enough" attitude. You guys should be the leaders and SHATTERERS, drawing viewers because you have brilliant and bizarre people creating equally brilliant and novel and mesmerizing TV.
    How about teaming up with NASA to do 30 min recaps of conversations and projects with the Space Station since the shuttles are paper weights now? Everything they do is podcasts to Earth. Team up with archaeological departments (at univs like U Penn, Harvard, Tulane, Berkeley, etc) to show, partially from the student excavators' perspectives) what their cutting edge research is leading to (underwater archaeology, decoding the last of the Mayan glyphs and culture, the thousands of ancient cities that reappeared on satellite surveys and what is being done with them. Or how recycling really does and doesn't help. Or a 3 segment show driven by questions sent in by viewers regarding tough life decisions (buy or rent, children or no children, children now or when, paper or plastic, sell or hold, new job or stay, new car or used, big wedding or small, wedding or elope, college now or wait, etc, etc.) A show to debunk or prove Old Wives' Tales and urban myths (like starve a cold, feed a fever or that people can turn street lights off with their personalities). How about an anecdotal history show about the quirky, human facts and foibles and not all the boring dates and places? (Marie Antoinette had a valet who did nothing but apply, guard, and remove her moles in the shape of stars, animals, moons, etc. stored in bejeweled cases. Clark Gable's breath was so bad from booze, cigars, and poor hygiene that female costars got extra pay to do kissing scenes with him. Cleopatra was, in fact, butt ugly.)
    Now, hire, rehire, and corral all of the creative people into a room, give them lots of donuts, coffee, crayons, and Lite-Brite and DO SOMETHING ASTOUNDINGLY DIFFERENT! (But make sure they don't swallow the Lite-Brite pegs.)

    • Fox doesn't make news.....they MAKE UP news.
    • Same thing. The news is the news, making it or making it up are the same thing. We are discussing making or better said, designing the delivery of the news so that it brings in listeners and changes viewer opinion to being more "progressive". Fox, Limbaugh, and company have perfected it to an art while "progressive" news media outlets lag way behind. My goal is to change that.

    I have been away from the Current TV website and network only to visit and find the same five shows broadcasting.

    This network used to be visual, containing short videos from visionaries and filmmakers. It used to be about perspective and creativity.

    What happened?!

    Oh Current, what happened???? I feel like I lost one of my most prized possessions. I loved loved loved Current before. The mixture of sarcasm, news, and documentaries was fantastic. It used to be the only thing I watched on TV. Now everything on Current is crap crap crap!! It is so sad. It makes me sad everytime I turn on the channel in the remote hope that something good would be on again. Please come back Current!!

I don't want to give up all hope but it's not looking good, please return to your original programing. Then we can put this mainstream phase behind us, so what do you say current? Will you be the channel I once loved once again?

    What they need to do is stop trying to follow the mtv model. I know that's where the new exec's come from. But tbey fucked up mtv that it no longer has music. And current is going to what all the other channels are doing. Which is the old format, not current or new or different. They have the same shows as all the other channels, and just play them over and over again. And as you can see they don't care... sadly I feel the fight is already lost. Everything that made current different is gone. Obermen is a liberal great, but other than being on our side he's no better than Glen Beck in terms of rederic or just blasting the otherside. I want the alternitive stuff back, why do I doubt most people that watch current really care about a bunch of high school football players? I don't need cop shows or to watch the border? And what's with the shitty movies? Point break? What are you TNT now?

    I'm sorry, I can't put Olbermann on Beck's level. Keith is about informing and entertaining; Beck is a brainwasher.

    They definitely do need to get rid of this MTV fool. Unless they want reality shows like pregnant at 16 and real world up someone's butt.

    But hey, I have a DVR and will make my choice what to watch show by show and skip all commercials.

    • Truth! They are both so radical. And having an hour show is fine but because Current really only plays the same three shows over and over again, Current Tv is more like the Olbermam Channel.
      You guys had a lot of great shows, some still doc style, like This American Life and VC2, but at least those weren't all filed with hate and buzz kills. Current is way to depressing now and you guys still have those shows listed on your website, haven't you heard of reruns!?
      It's like u gave up, last year you went out there with a lot of new shows, new ideas, and new formats, but you didn't make any new shows, or renew any season premieres for the fall.

      Don't get me wrong, I'm still on your side Current and hope you find lifejacket but honestly I get scared that the whole network is sinking and your gonna drown into the sea of lost causes.

    Does I told you so sink in yet? You're going to this all new core news informatican format. Sure people like information, but they don't need doom and gloom rubbed in their faces 24 hours a day, recycled every four hours.

    Bar Karma wasn't the greatest show I'll admit but gave your viewership and folks here something positive.

    Your programming stinks so bad now no wonder you have to have your page framed by deoderant baners on the header and both sides. The ship is almost out of reach of anyone caring about great user integrated content.

  • I also miss the old current TV, Al had a great idea, and it was a great channel and different to watch! That new guy that they hired from MTV is all missed up, he has no idea how to program a channel, he has to go, and go soon! THen bring back the old current, it wasn't doing that bad. If it was then sell the signal back to that Canadian news station that AL brought from them to air Current Tv. In fact the name should change to, since current has become like any other news channel, and that is sad. :( Al what are you thinking you fool? You had a great idea and then you ruined it by hiring this clown to run and program current tv?
    Please bring it back to the old format, it was a great idea to let other people film their own news stories around the world in their own vision!
    We all want it back, since this new format sucks majorly!

    I didn't watched Current until Keith came on board, and now with the additions of the Young Turks and the War Room have started making this part of regular programming. I like the documentaries they do too. I suggest they start a morning show because I can't stand CNN and MSNBC lineup in the early mornings so now watch reruns of the above programs.

    Before Countdown came on board, I rarely watched Current but with the addition of the Young Turks and now the War Room its part of my regular programming. Of course I still watch Ed and Rachel but that's about it on MSNBC. For those of you who said they liked the old programming boy you still have plenty of it. Vanguard and a couple other of the programs are great but you don't want them 24-7 repeated over and over again. Gore needs to make a commitment to upgrade the sets and technical issues that the network seems to have. He's got plenty of money to do it. How about a good morning program!

    What I loved the most about CurrentTV was the unconventional programming. I find it amusing that as these so-called "changes" to regular programming that are occurring are, at times interesting and relevant, but mostly a departure from what attracted me to this channel the most. The new shows are more 'talk radio' than informative programming. Stick to shows like Vanguard; thorough, comprehensive, well-researched, and explorative programs.

    I think Vanguard is an excellent program but they certainly needed to expand their programming. Having the same programs play over and over in a 24 hour, monthly cycle is boring. I like what they are doing now. More progressive programs please.

    Now that you severed your connection with Mr. Olberman, I no longer have to watch your channel, and will go back to MSNBC.
    Great job of shooting yourselves in the foot you brought him on to increase your viewership, and as much as I like Mr. Spitzer, he is not a replacement for the whit and wisdom of Keith.

  • I liked him. A fighter. A real live progressive. Understood the game. I don't know why he lost his "team" spirit. Maybe this is one of those "you had to be there".
    Good luck to you Keith. Hope your future is bright!!

  • Olbermann was the reason why I even tuned in to Current in the first place. I think they should have tried harder to work with him, and I don't think Spitzer is a suitable replacement. They probably shot themselves in the foot on this one.

    • Current t.v.+ Elliot S - Keith O=GOOD BYE!!!
      I changed my t.v. line up to watch Keith again--He's the rare voice of sanity in a world overloaded with liars and manipulators--and now you've done this!!
      Bad enough--but to do it the way you did?--worse than MSNBC ,who I no longer watch (except for Ed ocassionally) either.
      Watched Keith on Letterman--if any one wanted to understand what REALLY went on behind the scenes, that was the show to watch.
      Shame on you Current--you fudged the details to make Keith look bad, but only succeeded in making your selves look bad!

    • Lynne, this is a microcosm of why the progressive movement never gets any real traction. Even though a large majority of Americans, whether they admit it or not, generally have progressive views. Both Current and Keith neglected what is supposed to be the BIGGER picture. Honest reporting, reasonable forward thinking opinion on reality based information. Everything Fox isn't.
      But we got internal drama instead. Something else Fox never has. And also, WHY FIRE HIM? Seems more like an attempt to snivel out of an expensive contract because they haven't drawn big sponsor money yet. Good luck with Spitzer (whom I like) bringing in advertisers.

  • How could you ever choose Spitzer as your talk show replacement? He cost NY big bucks when he foolishly went beyond his responsibility as our governor and flew to NJ on weekend (in government owned choppers) to spend time with his mistress. I have problems believing that Spitzer speaks anything meaningful.
