Viacom, DirecTV reach agreement, I can watch @REALBully5150 again!

According to Advertising Age magazine, Viacom and DirecTV have ended their 10-day-long standoff, with all 26 Viacom stations returning shortly. The dispute was essentially over increased programming fees Viacom felt they deserved – which of course would have been passed onto me, the idiot customer who just “locked in” his rates thanks to the girl at the kiosk at Menard’s – as well as Viacom wanting DirecTV to include the new EPIX channel to its offerings, EPIX being a “hybrid premium/on-demand channel” that will cost DirecTV about “a billion dollars” in fees to air, according to some other article I can’t find but trust me it’s true and I’ll show you my September bill to prove it. (What are the chances that TNA will rehire Elix Skipper, rename him EPIX Skipper, and give him the world title in a total kiss-ass move?)

Anyway, screw EPIX, I can go back to watching TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV, and just in time, since everything about the show except the announcing, the crack whore (which one??) and Abyss’ continued employment is firing on all cylinders. T-N-A! T-N-A! -Eric
