Yes, as a matter of fact, I previously had even more categories for the 
support channels, such as News/Media, Travel, Sports... basically just about 
anything that wasn't computer-related.

I removed them for the exact reason that you explained. I will remove 
Television as well.

(Note again that such categories were NEVER there for #ubuntu-offtopic, but 
only for the support channels; I just mispasted there).
