I know I’m late on this, but I’ve been celebrating the Time Warner/Viacom deal since New Year’s.
No, not really. I’ve just been really busy and today’s my birthday!
But, on a serious note, I really am happy that my Comedy Central and Nick @ Nite weren’t taken away from me. I watch entirely too much South Park and stand up specials on Comedy Central, as well as Nick @ Nite for hours each night. Losing those channels would have absolutely KILLED me!
Thankfully, that didn’t happen as the 2 sides came to terms in the wee hours of the morning and the Viacom stations were never pulled. I wouldn’t know because I wasn’t home. But I did end up watching Nick@Nite until 5AM at my cousins’ house. I figured it would be my last time to watch my shows for a while.
Much like the teenagers likely saved CW for Time Warner customers, they’re crediting the urgency and turnaround of this deal to the parents of young children addicted to Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer. Aint life grand?
