I have been with WNNS since 2010 and have loved every single minute of it! I have truly enjoyed working with everyone each day from 9 to 2 and getting to know all of you. Don't forget our daily lunch date every weekday from noon to 1 at the All Request Cafe...see you there!!!


So who do you think blinked- Debs' Dishin' Hollywood Dirt

If you are a Direct TV subscriber- REJOICE!  Viacom and Direct TV have come to some sort of agreement and Dora the Explorer will once again explore a TV screen near you along with Comedy Central, MTV and a few others.

 

So who blinked? Rumors have it Direct TV will spend $600 million in carriage fees for the year- which is a pretty good pay raise for Viacom.  I have to wonder now if subscribers are going to have to bite their nails every time a contract comes up for negotiation.  While I don’t watch many of the channels that were affected by the black out, life without Nickelodeon is pretty pointless in my daughter’s opinion and I do have to admit a fondness for the Daily Show and the Colbert Report.

 

But satellite is not the only one susceptible to negotiation battles.  Time Warner – the second largest cable network was strong armed too.  Are the production companies getting greedy?  I think the answer to that has to be yes.  I know if costs money to produce the shows we love. One of my favorites, HBO’s Game of Thrones (by the way the books are better) costs a small…scratch that…LARGE fortune to make and advertising dollars are getting harder to get because of DVRs and internet/commercial free options but come on, $1 BILLION over five years so we can watch iCarly and Tosh.O seems a little steep

 

But at the end of the day about the only thing we can do is hope the broadcast companies and production companies play nice.  Otherwise we might have to do something drastic and pick up a book to see what becomes of Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones
