    This latest Viacom outage has really hit me really hard. How can I get through the weekend without all the Viacom channels? Do you think it will be resolved by Monday? I am mainly worried about missing Jersey Shore on MTV, especially Snookie and the others.

    Not trying to be a jerk but maybe upgrade your viewing habits. MTV and Snookie seriously.... The only channel on Viacom that I cared about was Palladia and that was maybe twice a year.

    Seems like a lame attempt at sarcasm by Mitch.

    I was right.

    More "I'm better than you" talk to people who like Viacom stations. Get over yourself.

    That is a good idea. I like the books that have pictures in them. Those are hard to find.

    Even though I don't watch Viacom channels often, the idea that I might want to and can't really bothers me. I get this feeling anytime channels that I occasionally watch are pulled. As far as doing other activities--fine, but I want the ability to choose my activities when I want.

    Which is kind of funny considering it is being done on a site devoted to watching tv by a guy who has a service designed to watch more than just network tv.

    agreed.
    I'm getting pretty damned tired of the tv snobbery shown in a bunch of threads the last few days.
    people don't like what I watch, too f'ing bad. none of their damned business.
    comedy central and tvland loss hits us hard here, anyone feel like making smart a$$ comments about it??

    I'm sorry for you if losing certain channels is hard on you. TV shouldn't have to be that important, IMHO.

    You're not better than anyone else because you don't watch Viacom's content. Get over it. Most people outside of this forum ARE impacted by the Viacom dispute.

    Get a life! Get out of the house. Go see a movie. Go visit friends. Volunteer. Or read a book, as others have suggested.

    I watch Colbert once in a while, but the lack of these 26 channels isn't enough to prompt me to complain. I've never heard of most of them; some of them that I've heard of I would never watch.

    I would advise you to stay away from the HD Anticipation thread.

    DirecTV has opened up four kid-centric channels to everyone and is quite liberal with free Showtime subscriptions. Well worth a phone call. ;)
