    VH1 Classic just went to the DirecTV Technical Difficulties screen. The first to go?

    VH1 HD too!

    No that is actually correct (its sickening though) the courts have ruled corparations are people, look up the rulings, they have the sae rights as people now. That is why free speech can be repressed so easily now by corporations (guest vs customer definitions)

    I am finding it interesting that with all the scrolls flying on the viacom channels on D*, watching the same channels on Xfinity shows NONE. I always thought all the satcasters and cable companies got the signal from the same C Band distribution source. Apparently not.

    Actually, my point was do they actually have more programming on now that is more valuable to all the Viacom channel's overall viewers than they did a few years ago?

    I actually watch more TVLand now then ever before, but that doesn't mean all their programs overall for Viacom have increased in value. I am looking at it from a package standpoint.

    Everything I have read is that overall their view ship is down, so even if they have a few good shows, they may have more shows that are bad in the ratings now that more than offset the new shows, vs a more solid top to bottom lineup in the past.

    Now I'm not going to see how Julia Roberts fools Matthew Perry into dressing in women's underwear and leaves him in a restaurant bathroom...

    And I won't learn if Joey and Ross do have their weekend game or if Ross will pick Marcel the Monkey over Joey...

    Oh well.
