A couple of years ago I thought they were running Jerry Springer reruns. Turns out it was CNN talking about Russian collusion.

Maybe shows about Air Disasters or something . Like in Airplane....wasn’t the inflight movie about airplane crashes? Or was that playing in the terminal? It’s been a while.

I think they should play Sully over and over and over again. I get tears in my eye watching it. Don’t judge

Not so much about watching CNN per se, it's just the non-stop, can't find a quiet moment, endless droning on and on and on about the same 3 stories of the non-stop news cycle. TV is a dinosaur for news anyway.

Airports are hectic and stressful enough. Here's to hoping all those airports put in something a little more Zen, for everyone.

(I like nature scenes. I suspect it's going to be more like non-stop pharmaceutical adds)
Agreed. The only places I ever see CNN or Fox News are crew rooms and waiting rooms. Even pharmaceutical adds would be an improvement

One of the Serial podcast seasons covered the daily happenings in a Cleveland courthouse. Turns out, they landed on The Food Network as about the only channel folks could agree on. After all the snack boxes and cheezits this year, I could get on board with that.

I would vote for live sports. Or rotating soothing beautiful pictures. Or. . .just turn them off and leave them off.

The food network idea is pretty sound. Maybe some GBBO. Occasionally throw in baseball with the home team's radio broadcast for the announcers.
