Default Viacom's cable networks are cutting down on scripted programming

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/li...ebrand-1059732

CMT will be done with scripted TV after Nashville and TV Land is pressing pause while the upcoming Paramount Network is being built up as a premium drama outlet.

This is good news because all of their scripted, original stuff was pure crap.

How about when the article mentions how they are niche channels? They haven't been niche channels in years. THAT'S the problem.

The only TV shows I pay for are the ones I purchase on home video.

As long as Paramount doesn't cancel Lyp Sync Battle it's all good with me. There's more variety of classic tv than there was during the glory days of Nick @ Nite and TV Land.

Nick@Nite is a worthless network that spams more George Lopez and everybody complaining on facebook, why doesn't the network listen to the viewers what we want and request?

Logo has for all intent and purposes, become the defacto TV Land 2. On that end, from what I've heard, all focus - including original programming and the majority of the budget - will be placed on those channels and the others (TV Land, VH1, CMT, Logo, etc.) will be considered "non-essential" (their words). The programming on the second level channels will consist of off-network reruns and rebroadcasts of original programming from the main six networks.
