So Long, Subway Q&A

The Times reports that The Metro Channel is reinventing itself to focus on fashion:All New York, All Fashion, (Almost) All the Time

Gone is the eclectic magazine show "Gotham TV," with its profiles of downtown clubbers and eccentrics; gone are the comedy showcase "New Joke City," the live-music show "Daily Beat" and the reality show "Third Date," which trailed city couples on their third rendezvous, on the theory that it's the make-or-break encounter.

In particularl, Daily Beat was a pretty good local music show, produced very well that had a good mix of local and national acts of various levels of renown, with decent production values. I think it's a shame that Metro is stopping the focus on a braod spectrum NYC culture (which I have an interest in) to focus solely on fashion (which I have no interest in.)
