TV Programs on Gold Mining

Has anyone given any thought to why we are now seeing so many gold mining programs on TV

Gold Rush, Jungle Gold, Bering Sea Gold, Lost Treasure Hunters (beginning 12/23)

It seems to me that there is more interest in Gold now from Joe Sixpack than perhaps a few years ago.

Most of these shows have more emphasis on the drama than the reality but nevertheless it does seem to me that interest among the regular folk in gold is increasing. What do you think?
