All the popular shows are...
Sons of Guns
Lizard Lick Towing
Those are probably 4 of my favorite shows (aside from the network series that come on soon... NCIS, etc). They all have interesting content, but have a lot of the family drama in them. That's what people like to see, so that's what they like. Just like supply and demand. Lots of people want something, they make lots of it. You can thank big brother for that.
"What, exactly, is the internet? Basically it is a global network exchanging digitized data in such a way that any computer, anywhere, that is equipped with a device called a 'modem', can make a noise like a duck choking on a kazoo." - Dave Barry
