I would welcome such a channel. I don't think they should turn personal situations into tv drama - with all due sympathy and respect to Rochette. It has produced a plethora of "poor, poor thing" articles and, I feel, even influenced the scoring of the Olympics - far out of the Olympic spirit - but, of course, the media has reaped a lot of clout bilking it to the hilt.
