Whatever it's called... I used to like it, back when it was all scrolling text. Now they have almost 2/3rds of the screen showing these effing a-holes that I don't even know spewing sh!t out of their pie holes. No, I have never watched American Idol, and I never will, so my wife has had to tell me who this sh!t bags are.
 
I hate that sh!thead with the curly hair... wtf? He used to wear it back in some sort of barrette thingy or whatever.
 
And who the fvck is this -ahem- effeminate looking kid with black hair that he has growing over one half of his face. I want to punch him so bad. He keeps flipping the hair back by tossing his head in that direction. I want to see someone hold him down and shave his damned head.
 
Ugh, other people must hate this crap as much as I do, or maybe I'm just nuts.

TV Guide Channel is a waste of space. So is TV Guide magazine, come to think of it!

Usually I see guides like that while staying in hotels, and most times they're advertising some pay-per-view service, like the latest movies.  But for some reason, the previews can have a different set for audio and video, so you'll be seeing the preview for one movie while hearing the preview for another movie.  Huh?  It can be pretty funny, though, especially when different previews have the same general timing structure to their narratives...

I hate hate hate the TV Guide channel. The scroll is getting smaller and smaller. And when those bitches Joan and Melissa take over the ENTIRE screen... UGH. And did you know the sh*tty programming they show at the top is closed captioned? Doesn't that defeat the purpose a little bit?

My school has its own preview channel and it is how it should be. Nothing but the scroll and the time on there. It was so nostalgic I teared up a bit the first time I saw it.

That channel is a waste of space. Who cares if Jennifer Anniston is wearing a blue dress with gold heels.

I used to spend time on that channel.  I got sick of them slowing the information down to a crawl and airing nonstop infomercials.

Look it up on the internet and you will never mess with that channel again.  You can choose your area by zip code and choose your cable provider.  Then, you can quickly scroll up and down 2 hours worth of channels at any day and at any time.

I am sooo glad that this topic was brought up. I hate it, hate it, hate it! It is the TV GUIDE CHANNEL! NOT the reality show/Joan and Melissa channel.  The screen is like 2" big to show the scrolling programs....this is after they stop at the weather (which is never right) so they should just eliminate that feature since there are 2 weather channels.  Then, there are the line jumpers where they show these shows first (out of order) before the other programs.  Don't even get me started on Joan and Melissa Rivers and the Oscar "TAKEOVER"  where you need to sit right infront of the screen with a magnifying glass to see what's on besides 2 of the most annoying people on TV.  Then by the time you figure out what you want to watch....show's over!!!  They TV Guide need to purchase space for another channel to show their crap they air now and have a channel dedicated to TV GUIDE!
 
The other day I turned it on and all that was on was a full screen of infomercials  24/7...I called my cable company and asked them "what's up with the TV guide channel"? and they said it was broken and a part was ordered, should be only (only!) a couple of days before it was fixed.  It is fixed now, but have you ever heard of this? 
 
I have had digital and it is nice, but I'm eliminating alot of non essentials right now!
