      The TV Guide Channel began essentially as just a scroll of cable listings. Now it’s a network with original programming. The one theme that is consistent is that TV Guide Channel is all about entertainment and nothing else. You may find paid programming during the wee hours of the morning, but you won’t find wrestling, thank goodness.

      If you can survive the program scrawl that runs across the bottom half of the screen, there’s actually some decent


      programming on TV Guide Channel, including their magazine show called Hollywood 411. They also do a lot of preview shows, which can be fun. They are well known for their Red Carpet shows. For years, Joan Rivers and Melissa Rivers were their hosts, but now they have more refined hosts, such as Carrie Ann Inaba from Dancing with the Stars.

      • initial channel to air American Idol Rewind as well. It’s a very interactive channel.

        They are also quick to put together shows to fit the news of the day. Sadly, Patrick Swayze died the week that I’m writing this review. In less than a day, TV Guide Channel created Patrick Swayze - His Life, His Legacy. By the weekend, they’d added an interview show taken from the 20th anniversary edition of the Dirty Dancing DVD.

        down item from this network are the commercials. They run a whopping 6 to 6 1/2 commercials every time they go to a break. I know because I’ve been timing them every day while taping things on Swayze. It’s the worst case I’ve seen for commercials.

        Other than that, TV Guide Channel fulfills their function, and because they are the way they are, they can be flexible and cater to the public, which is perhaps their best characteristic.
