So I just read this morning that Time Warner Cable is apparently having a bloodbath fight with Viacom and unless they work something out today, starting tomorrow morning, Time Warner Cable will no longer be carrying any of Viacom’s 19 cable channels. That includes the various Nickelodeons, VH1s, and MTVs, among others. And it includes Comedy Central.
If I am not able to have my “Daily Show” and “Colbert” next Monday, there will be fucking hell to pay. Hell. to. pay.
Time Warner, I don’t care what fees Viacom is asking for — considering how much you assrape us customers for, you can fucking afford it and still make your god damn profits. You are seven kinds of fucked. Don’t make it eight. Make this shit right.
(Stay tuned to Nikki Finke’s site for updates.)
