Ah, I will have to check that out. I know my cable had OLN. I mostly watch...well nothing...but if I do happen to be watching TV, it is mostly the History Channel, Discovery Health, or Court TV.

I just created a wish list on TIVO to tape any sports show that has to do with cycling. It gets all the Versus stuff and got the NBC broadcast of The US Open on Saturday. That one was pretty great with all the snow!

I am beginning to think that my Tivo is smarter than I am. Tivo makes a mindless activity like watching TV even more mindless.
