I kind of like the concept that, no matter what you may be into, there's probably enough interest to have a cable channel for it. Instead of just having three channels to choose from, there are now so many that a person can really fine-tune exactly what they feel like watching (even without On Demand or TiVo). Reruns? Game shows? Soaps? Westerns? Cartoons? News? Instead of having to wait for a certain program at a certain time, you can usually just flip over to "The ___________ Channel" and have at it.

But, on the other hand, it annoys me to no end whenever one of these specialty channels really don't have enough content to warrant it's existance. Well, either that or they create the channel for one specific type of content, and then start showing other shows that are not even close to the same genre. Call it a pet peeve.

This is what I've seen so far:
Dennis the Menace on the Black Family Channel
NHL Hockey on the Outdoor Life Network
Scrabble on ESPN
Live College Basketball on ESPN Classic
Poker on The Travel Channel (also, most of the other poker shows that seem to be cropping up every other week...)
The Man Show, Star Trek: TNG, and a few street racing shows on G4 Video Game TV
Miss America on Country Music Television
and, of course, roughly 99% of the content on Music Television

Anyone else have any good ones they've seen?
