just another channel for me to never watch.

God I wish they would go to customizing our bills based on only the channels we care to watch.

I thought the same. Since she just hit the $2 billion mark, guess that gets her another channel? :shrug:

when did she hit 2 bills

I heard something on the radio recently where her net worth was over $2 billion. It was a news segment about her Will and dropping that guy Stedman out of it.

She just sold it to NBC. Yet another channel that was aquired to keep NBC afloat. Telemundo, Sci Fi, USA, Bravo................ The list goes on. Nothing new from NBC, just aquiring existing sucessful channels.
