The Weather Channel's aptly named When Weather Changed History drew the most viewers of any launch ever on the network when it debuted January 6. The first HD produced series on The Weather Channel, increased viewers by about 27% with its debut episode, focusing on the Challenger shuttle explosion. Airing every Sunday at 9 p.m., HD footage is giving people a reason to stay on TWC to watch for other reasons than seeing some poor guy with a mic getting almost blown away in a hurricane.
