Well on Time Warner cable at least. Variety reports today that TWC and Viacom are at an impasse in renewal contract talks. So come tomorrow morning, you may not have a 12 hour marathon of Parental Control – oh no, what to do!? Not sure who the bad guy is here, the network that went from music pioneer to a gossip magazine, or the cable carrier that touts “free movie trailers” and has shotty service. The real bad guy is greed, and these two media giants are under that perpetual spell. Good news is MTV has decided to give themselves a massive facelift with a whole new slate of shows, in an effort to seize back some of adults that left when MTV went after Nickelodeon’s crop. And to get their ad rev back up. And TWC? Comcast LA was a million times better.
