TNN Becomes Spike TV

"Today the first network for men has a name, and it's Spike TV," said Albie Hecht, president of TNN. "Spike TV captures the attributes and essence of what we want the first network for men to be. It's unapologetically male; it's active; it's smart and contemporary with a personality that's aggressive and irreverent. This is a first major step in our journey to super-serving men in a way no one has done before."

We've gone from The Nashville Network to The National Network to...Spike TV! Beer Boobs and Babes. Oh, and maybe some intelligent stuff too. The change takes place June 16.

Some Web Advertising Does Actually Work

An advertising skeptic, David Kirkpatrick of Fortune, writes about his newfound love for targeted web advertising. He isn't talking about those flashy ads that interupt your web browsing or that cruise across your screen. He's talking about Google Ad Words. They work and they are making Google a pile of money.

PUMA Gets Even More (Unwanted) Press

Slate's Rob Walker writes a summary article on the PUMA Ad Sensation. The ironic thing about this whole event is that PUMA, who wanted the ad to die a fast and quiet death, actually fanned the flames by threatening those that posted the images with cease and desist letters.

Better just keep quiet next time, PUMA.

Lesbians to Kiss on Daytime TV

The first lesbian kiss on daytime TV will take place on "All My Children" April 22. Why is this news? Apparently, it's a big deal for some people to see women kiss each other on TV.

Here's how the network is rationalizing this so called bold move:

"The theme of 'All My Children' from the beginning is the belief that, as God's children, we are all bound to each other by our common humanity despite our many personal differences; that it is our failure to understand and respect those differences that causes most of life's pain and suffering," said the show's creator, Agnes Nixon, in a statement.

Hmm...that's a new one. Bringing God into the excuse for a ratings ploy.

PETA wants to run one of it's ads that trys to depict meat eaters as murderers on the Al-Jazeera Network. PETA is mad because the network will air bloody American bodies but not PETA spots.
It is said that Al-Jazeera held off because of sensitivity to its own personnel killed in the war with Iraq. Strange. Very strange. [via Salon]
