I do think there was a mini bubble that popped a few years ago as some of the smaller shows lost what few Sponsors they had and got tired of funding it all on their own. However a whole new generation of shows has popped up to take their place. I honestly don't know how some of them make it considering the costs for camera gear, editing, airtime and more. I would guess we continue to see a pretty hefty turnover of small "do it yourself" shows these next few years but I doubt many of them will catch on. Now on a positive note I have seen a considerable upswing in the quality and originality of some of the content these past few years. HB started the trend in cinematography and many others have followed, and ever surpassed, their quality IMO. I thought the Professionals was a great show and Uncharted is shaping up to be equally as good. There is no questioning the growing gap in the quality of outdoor programming. It's nice to see some of the better stuff continue to get better, but some of the bad stuff is just awful. I don't know how some of these people can make a show and honestly say to themselves "This is awesome. Let's put it on TV!".
