Got 100% but took me a minute to figure out Cable News Network. Makes sense I guess given the network's origin, and the fact that they pioneered "cable news"- though the term is now obsolete.

Man I used to love TLC. It all started going out of control with Trading Spaces and Ty Pennington. I blame Ty Pennington for the downward spiral of The Learning Channel.

I'd always thought IFC was for 'international' until I tried it - then tried independent based on the type of movies. Regardless - I'm disappointing in myself for (eventually) getting them all correct.

Got 100%. 2:34 left. A lot of these stations have lost their ways. TLC, MTV, VH1, AMC. Nothing but mindless reality shows. I remember when AMC featured nothing but old movies of cinematic significance. Weekends with marathon showings of Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle movies also. Nowadays it's Big Studio Big Budget stinker movies (with the occassional insertion of a God Father marathon) followed by episodes of the walking dead. Though i enjoyed the Breaking Bad era and even Better Call Saul (while it lasted).
