American Pickers was the one show we enjoyed watching that was cable only.  But they occasionally had sound problems.  We'd get really loud pops that scared our dogs.  I guess they thought shots were being fired.

So, we quit watching the show.  Then we realized we didn't watch any cable shows.

Now we get all of our TV "off air" from an old fashioned antenna.

We enjoy not paying for the cable, but, I have to admit I miss AP.

Stopped by their location a couple times and talked to Danni. I admit I was disappointed in what they had... as it turns out, they sell most of it over the net rather than keeping it in the store.

That sounds logical.  There must be a warehouse some where with a very camera shy, knowledgeable, well organized person running it.   
Watched last night because they were in Kansas.  They were in Greensboro giving someone pointers on which items they had were of value.
