Rest in Peace, DHC

Discovery Health Channel passed away on January 1, 2011. It was eleven.

The child of Discovery Communications Inc, DHC lived a thrilling yet short life showcasing the medical realities of our world and those who live in it. From birthing babies to the critical hours of emergency medicine to the autopsies of those who didn't survive, DHC showed it all.

During its brief but poignant life, DHC won a daytime Emmy and the viewership of millions.

Towards the end of its life, DHC was burdened with the knowledge that with its passing, a gaping hole would be left in the viewing options of those who work, live, and care about the medical field. Even with this heavy heart, DHC stayed strong until the end.

You will be missed, Discovery Health Channel.

Condolences may be stated on your own blogs.

And also, screw you Oprah. You are the spawn of Satan.

CNN did about a 1/2 hour tribute to Oprah about her new network starting today. Gagg-a-roo, who cares, I'm with you Fundus!

I completely agree with you on everything! Discovery Health rocked. I can't stand Oprah.

On another note, I really enjoy your blog. I'm looking forward to your posts in the new year!

She is the spawn and Dr. Oz and "Dr. Phil" are her devil dogs.

Well, there goes my opinion of CNN...seriously, there was nothing more newsworthy than Oprah's new channel?

I had no idea.
That's a big ole' fat disappointment. I too enjoyed that channel.

Some of the shows have migrated over to FitTV, thankfully. I'd miss Dr. G, Medical Examiner!

Oh come now, she is not the devil's spawn.

Other way around, maybe. . .
