No it's not. It's just the economy and just lack of good content that is. Bravo hasn't been about high brow movies and stuffy TV shows in a long time. However, they are a ratings bonanza with their reality and competition shows.
Heck Food Network isn't about cooking anymore. MTV isn't about music television anymore. Both are still top rated networks.
My issue with "Top Gear" America on the History channel isn't that it's on the history channel. My issue with it is that it's boring.
That said, I look forwarding to checking out this "Idiot Abroad" show.
