Sounds like Viacom will pull the plug on 19 MTV Networks channels on Time Warner Cable if the two don't cut a deal before the stroke of midnight, Multichannel News reports. So Time Warner subscribers like me could be screwed come tomorrow if we want to watch The Daily Show or South Park.
Viacom wants more money from Time Warner -- they say $.25 per month per subscriber. Time Warner says "Viacom is trying to extort $39 million annually -- on top of the hundreds of millions of dollars our customers already pay to Viacom each year."
I'm trying to come to terms with the potential loss of Comedy Central (South Park, The Daily Show, Colbert Report) and Spike (TNA Impact).
I don't care so much about Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, MTV, VH1, TV Land, Noggin, MTV2, VH1 Classic, Logo, MTV Hits, MTV Jams, MTV Tr3s, Nick Too, Nicktoons, The N, CMT Pure Country, Palladia and VH1 Soul.
Both sides are playing earnest negotiator. Look, I don't care how this gets done. Just get me my damn Daily Show. -- Justin Kendall
