An open letter to The Travel Channel, also submitted online to their Viewer Relations Dept:
I like shows about travel. One would think I could find one occasionally on the Travel Channel. One would be wrong. Where the Travel Channel is supposed to be on my TV, there’s a network devoted to recreational binge eating and ghosts. I don’t believe in either one.
This is chronic. You aren’t producing shows about travel anymore, right? Anthony Bourdain travels, but then he just eats. Except for Samantha Brown – who’s great – you’ve got nothin’. And one show doesn’t make a channel.
Come on, guys, spring for some air fare and show us some travel.
Can you relate?
