The Nocturnal Channel (TNC)

Shows daytime shows during the night.

It's hard to find good programs to watch on late-night TV. Mostly there are just 70's sitcom reruns and infomercials.

There should be a channel (or a group of them) that put the good stuff on after midnight, and the infomercials and crappy shows on during the day. The first network to do this will probably make a fortune in this niche business.

Thank you.

       Many years ago, there used to be a programme on at around 3-4am called "Job Finder" - I just loved the implicit suggestion in that.

       Are we talking a Channel 4 +12? Might be a UK thing to have +1 channels. Im pretty sure Nuts TV only starts at 11pm and I know several channels that have good quality programming well into the night.   

       I used to stay up late and watch NHL, Fong Sei Yuk films and Jam into the early hours.

       What kind of Jam?

<Suggested edit> It's hard to find good programs on TV.

       I'd suggest time-shifting with a DVR, but as DrBob has pointed out, you won't have much luck with daytime or evening programming. [+] for suggesting that the network put something watchable on, at any time.

       The way the future is looking is to have downloadable content via high speed fibre optics. This has the advantage of being on demand. It would probably have adverts and some programs may cost some money to view early (maybe have a pay-catch up, but a free re-run system ala 4OD), but would allow good tv at any time

       As a long-time user of Late-Night TV, I have to bone this, sorry. There's a lot of physical stress working an off-shift; nobody needs something that's really captivating at 3:30am... "I Love Lucy" is the perfect background for doing the dishes/laundry.   

       Besides... PVR's.
