The History Channel / american pickers

1 Roseville, CA, United States Review updated:

To Whom Well great job, Narrating the American Pickers program ?? " Mike pulls in a driveway " " Frank and Mike look down " " The American Pickers logo is on TV." What do you think ? that all your Audience are Blind ? and that we can't see what's going on ? You've made one of your best shows not watchable ! Great job ! No one needs you to tell them what going on when they can see it ( it's Television not Radio ). so until it's changed back you've lost me as a Viewer. P Cook

    I totally agree that the new unneeded narration on some of my favorite shows like Pawn Stars, Counting Cars and American Pickers is so annoying that I can't even watch them anymore.Who decided we are all blind?

    The narrator is the most annoying...we cringe when he speaks...the most inane comments "caption..." "Mike and Frank pull into the driveway", and on and on. Do you think the audience is stupid. We turn it off immediately when the narrator comes on...rather watch the older shows. GET RID OF HIM!

    The current History Channels programming with shows such as American Pickers and Pawn Stars is ruining the channel...It is hard enough the watch one episode in a 24 hour period, much less back to back shows all day long...I can not believe the History Channel can not do better than that...It shows a lack of effort on their part to put quality shows on the History Channel.

    Agree with all these comments. Pickers used to be one of my favorite shows. Now I'm just about done watching it. Way to ruin a great series, HC. It's okay to admit you made a mistake with the annoying and unnecessary narration and to get rid of it. And, ironically, I DO voiceovers professionally for a living and wouldn't want to hear my OWN voice butting into this show.

    Please stop with the redundant narration you are ruining the show we elect to watch something else when the show is narrated. That was the most stupid idea ever. The question remains WHY?

    waste of network money to have narrator on what was my favorite program (american pickers). do not need to have someone tell me what i am seeing. i totally agree that this is a stupid idea.

    I wonder how many people need to post on this site before the History Channel lessons get rid of the narrator on my four favorite shows. We are not blind or stupid you are

    Considering the oldest comments are from 2016, I'm not sure anyone is listening.

    The same irritating superfluous commentary is inserted withing Turner Classic Movies, literally destroying the original content of great movies such as "The African Queen" and "Casablanca". It's a scandal and an outrage. My wife and I hate it.
    There must be some tacit assumption by some [censored]ic drone in management with a room temperature IQ that people are too incredibly stupid to see with their own eyeballs what is going on. I know the average IQ on this crazy ass planet is circling the drain (think "Trump"), probably at about 85 now, but surely we don't need to be informed that "Ralph is now kissing Rose" or "Jack turned on the lights". This is the dumbest most demeaning thing I've seen in years and the dim bulb who came up with this [censored] ought to be taken to the firing squad.
