Not that I'm doubting that they'd do something as stupid as a timebuy in 205 when they can't even sell tickets, but where does that info come from? There was nothing on that in the Observe.

Only that Paragon Pro was paying for time, so it's assumed that TNA is as well. The Observer hasn't even reported on the POP news yet.

No, but they were mentioned along with WGN as the two networks they were negotiating with. Maybe I'm giving them too much credit, but I can believe they'd at least not have to but the slot due to having much more of a name and a record of at least drawing a fairly decent amount of viewers in the past. Doubt they're getting much if at all though.

My theory is that their India deal (somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5M/y) would cover a timebuy and maybe keep the company afloat if it were stripped almost bare. Not sure what POP would charge for carriage, though if PPW could afford it, maybe not that much?

TNA lies in its hospital bed. No arms. No legs. No eyes. Most of its face blown off. Only the mind and vital organs remain. Every moment is a nightmare of pain and darkness. It uses its strength to bang its head into the wall. It's morse code.

"KILL ME. KILL ME."

Dixie Carter understands the request, but ignores it. She leaves the room, choosing to go find Bram and offer him a new contract.

Me too! Maybe this channel is one giant prank.

From a Mecca poster:

quote:

bartman 17 minutes ago
Personally I'm not happy about the move. I only have the channel in SD and the TV Guide takes up over half the screen. I don't know if I will be able to watch it, and the picture is horrible. I might be better off watching online because looking at the picture and the guide screams 2nd rate to me. Literally only like a third of the screen is the program and not the guide or the barriers on top and the sides.

From Wikipedia: "The second season was titled Unusually Thicke: Under Construction and moved to HGTV Canada, as it centres on Thicke and his family doing a renovation project on their home."

I want to watch this (but only with Paul F. Thompkins in the role of Thicke).

Billy Corgan stands at the head of a table, places his hands on the surface and leans forward. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I have three words for you: Local. Cable. Access."

Dixie Carter leans over to John Gaburick and whispers admiringly,"We need to give him a raise."

There are so many holes in this boat that I think it's inevitable. Without irony this is all the same as last year, when the zealots were all 'oh it's a small network but it's owned/operated by a GIGANTIC one!' 'They're really gonna promote the product this time!' 'They're gonna give TNA all sorts of other programming!'

When they start pulling 300K's again the demented emails will start.

I don't think they'll even get 300k for their premiere, and it'll only get worse from there.
