We've been using an antenna here for a few years now, so we only get to see these types of shows when in a motel room on vacation. We just went to Florida a couple weeks ago, and got to see several episodes. Looks like they got a new shop, and the prices of the work went through the roof.

And that new office area on Pawn Stars seems to have driven the prices and the drama way up there too.

And on the way home we made the big mistake of stopping in downtown Nashville at the big name t-shirt and trinket and a handful of $2000+ antiques store.

I saw an episode where Rick Dale wanted $6000 to restore a Maytag washer with engine. The customer passed.

Im not sure why we have satellite TeeVee anymore except for Fox News, Fox Buisiness and CSpan.

Occasionally, i will find something on History or Science but usually after watching an episode, i womder why i wasted the time.

ScooterBob, with the Internet nowadays, you really don't beed TV anymore. I cancelled SAT TV 3 years ago and I don't miss it. If you don't need to see important live events as they unfold, most shows can be watched next day on the internet.
Elden, I hope you don't keep your dish just for Faux News
I watch the restoration show occasionally, especially when motorcycles come up and always wondered on which market they get their "value after restoration". With very few exceptions the market does not bear these high estimates anymore.
