I completely agree. E* and viacom need each other. To a couple of people above, who think a.) I'm 13 and b.) anyone who cares about viacom channels must be sitting there masturbating to MTV, give me a break. First Viacom channels include tvland, nick at night, cbs. These are all channels that older generations would be interested in. I personally enjoy watching reruns of old sitcoms on tvland and nick at night, and I'm 23. Go figure I'm not someone who says, "oh its not from my generation it must be crap," like some others on this board. Just because you don't find something interesting doesn't mean that there aren't millions of other people out there that do. I really do feel if talks would break off between E* and Viacom, both sides would suffer greatly. On E*'s side, they would not have some of the most basic cable channels, which would make them a very tough sell over cable and d*. On viacoms side, they will instantly lose 9 million homes. Not something to sneeze at. Although...they can be my guest to get rid of VH1. That channel went from the adult contemporary music video station to complete garbage. They don't even play "Behind the Music" anymore. All I ever see on there is I love the 80's or whatever the hell it is. That channel is truly a waste of space, it angers me everytime I pass by it, I just wish it would die....ok, end rant.
