    Yes, that is why these rarely last long, after 3-4 days advertisers will want a discount.

    On 3-4 days they usually can get some "free slots", but after that they demand rates adjusted. they know with 20-25 million (whatever DTV) less homes having access that Viacoms viewership is down at least 15-20%.

    They'll be back, and in greater numbers.

    (I had to when I saw Darth Vader there)

    Back to the point of this post. At least this morning, some of the the full episode feeds are back available online. Although they make you watch the Viacom propaganda commercial before you watch the show.

    "Some" doesn't look to be the only show I'm interested in:

    I hate to admit I checked out Teen Wolf on MTV and it's available. Comedy Central shows still seem to be off online. Nick also seems to be unavailable.

    You are exactly right. From what I am told, they've been doing make goods for the last year anyway because their ratings have been down, now it's only going to get worse.

    How quickly will 20 million households affect the ratings themselves?

    I agree. I watched Teen Wolf too on MTV.com. (Im not ashamed. I like it, albeit Im out of the demographics) Maybe Viacom knows its ratings are dropping like flies so they are offering more content online. I wanted to watch Futurama on Comedy Central however they are still keeping that offline.
