Depends on who you are, and what you consider "interesting".  If the 
year is 2016 and you're researching internet culture of the first decade 
of the 21st century, I'd imagine you might find it interesting.

Wikipedia already has plenty of uninteresting-to-me bits of pop-culture 
trivia from previous decades, but they may well be of interest to people 
who research or otherwise have an interest in such things.  I haven't 
heard of most of the television shows on [[List of television shows 
canceled after one episode]], for example, and don't really care to, but 
I'm glad we cover them, and in fact it would be nice if fewer of them 
were red links.
