Grassley is no stranger to taking swipes at the network, previously slamming them for airing the show “Pawn Stars,” which follows a family-run pawn shop in Las Vegas. 

The top Republican’s Twitter feud with the network dates back to at least 2012, bemoaning the channel’s lack of “real, old-fashioned history program[s].”

The History Channel finished 2016 ranked eighth in ratings out of all basic cable networks.
