A simple question

Why is this show still on the air?

I had all the Endymion I could take, and a little channel surfing prompted a simple question. Anybody got a simple answer?

Addition, also found while channel surfing on a Saturday night:

TNA wrestling has a woman wrestler, Roxxi Laveaux, who's billed as being a vodoo queen from Congo Square in New Orleans. She's also accompanied by a couple of rednecks who call thmselves the Voodoo Kin Mafia. Don't know if I'd go so far as to call her hot, but she's pretty cute, at least she doesn't have the artificial enhancements of most women wrestlers. Alas, she isn't really from New Orleans.

That's a rhetorical question, right?
Well, it shouldn't be on the air for myriad reasons.

However, as someone who occasionally dabbles in the RE market, and who has done some flips, I will point out that good profits can be made in a housing downturn. One of my mentors did flips in CA during the late eighties and early nineties, and made out like a bandit. In times of fear and panic, people who know what they are doing can often buy at tremendous discounts, and then sell at reasonable discounts, pocketing a decent profit.

Still, I would prefer a new show with a title like: "Taking advantage of stupid banks via short sells" or "Guerrilla negotiating with your mortgage company's Loss/Mitigation Dept."

I'd tivo those programs.
Yeah it was largely rhetorical, but you'd think that TLC would have the sense of decency to take it off the air under the circumstances -- even if they have to show reruns until they get a replacement. Hell, it hasn't been that many years since I watched TLC, they could show some of the programs nerds like me used to watch.
