The Groundhog Channel

This channel shows the movie "Groundhog Day", and nothing else, on a continuous loop.

Whenever you tune in, all you ever get to see is "Groundhog Day". Over and over and over again.

The irony is obvious.

       Will you be posting this every day from now on?

       No, but it will seem that way.

       //The irony is obvious//   

       Ah. Therein lies the flaw. The purpose of irony is to divide and exclude. There needs to be one clearly defined group who get the in-joke, raising the correct eyebrow and smirking at the right time and, just as important, there must be a much larger population of unenlightened dullards who don't get it. This generates an immediate affective pay-off for the former, at the affective expense of the latter. All of psychoanalysis works like this. And if the irony is, as you say, obvious, then there is no out-group and hence, no pay-off.

       I would like to see if the actual Groundhog could show his shadow on the other 364 days...What the heck does he do on all those other days?   

       That is what I thought when I saw the title!!

       Isn't it a bit redundant to say 'groundhog'? I mean, hogs or pigs generally aren't aquatic, nor aviationary, they don't climb trees or burrow. They're on the ground. All of them. All pigs live on the ground.

       The term "groundhog" allows the indigent inhabitants to discriminate between the very rarely seen subspecies of marmot, and the genuinely never seen Defecit Reduction Flying Pig, supposedly associated with each new U.S. president.

       What about all the other Groundhog Day movies such as the quite reasonable Edge of Tomorrow ?   

       Maybe I should record myself watching this channel until I finally solve the riddle and throw something at the TV.
