I think you're overreacting to fears that people will accidentally type it as "STD." First off, I know shortcuts are all the rage in instant messaging, but what's wrong with actually typing "Spike TV"? That's not that much longer. It reminds me of Yahoo! Games, where people type "n" to say that they're "in" on the next hand. Wow, what savings!

And I'd be more worried about d in place of v if the d was where the f is. You use a different finger to type a v than you do for a d. And if you're hunting-and-pecking, I still don't see you going from v to d accidentally.



NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.

These Viacom executives must have a thing for Little Spike Dudley.
First, they make him the commissioner to battle the evil `network' back in the ECW says. Then he gets a job on Raw a few years later. When the guy is finally de-pushed enough to wrestle almost exclusively on Heat... TNN picks it up.
Now, they're changing their name so that he can effectively be their spokesman.

I can only be thankful that, back in the day, those same execs weren't nearly as enamoured with Balls Mahoney...

Research guy and the intern could be reused... just hopefully not.

I don't see the whole bitch and moan about this -- there's already what -- three channels for women? (We, O! and Lifetime for Women) Don't get your panties into a bunch over this. Like Nag said -- this is narrowcasting, and it might work.

As long as they bring back the Slam Dunk competition on SlamBall, I'm there.

I don't think its a problem of them wanting to make an all male channel. By the name, SPike TV is what is wierd about it.

Strangely, Viacom already owns a station geared toward kids that shows lots of Sponge Bob and Rugrats. They call it Nickelodeon.

Oh, great God above help us all. Why in the darkest crevases of earth are you calling your cable channel SpikeTV?!? Viacom, pointing gun towards foot and pulling the trigger sounds like what is about to happen. Lets look up the definition...

Main Entry: 1spike
Pronunciation: 'spIk
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, probably from Middle Dutch; akin to Middle High German spIcher spike
Date: 13th century
1 : a very large nail
2 a : one of a row of pointed irons placed (as on the top of a wall) to prevent passage b (1) : one of several metal projections set in the sole and heel of a shoe to improve traction (2) plural : a pair of shoes having spikes attached to the soles or soles and heels c : SPINDLE 1e
3 : something resembling a spike: as a : a young mackerel not over six inches (15.2 centimeters) long b : an unbranched antler of a young deer
4 plural : shoes with spike heels
5 : the act or an instance of spiking (as in volleyball)
6 a : a pointed element in a graph or tracing b : an unusually high and sharply defined maximum (as of amplitude in a wave train)
7 slang : HYPODERMIC NEEDLE
8 : a momentary sharp increase and fall in the record of an electric potential; also : ACTION POTENTIAL
9 : an abrupt sharp increase in prices or rates

The closest thing I can see anything even relating to the channel might be "ACTION POTENTIAL". I'd love to meet the guy who said, "I've got it! Lets call it Spike TV!" Idiot! This makes for new unique slogans now. "Now when your watching football you see the player Spike the ball, think Spike TV!!!!"

Shesh, that's it I'm going to go jump off the top of highest building I can find because I think I've seen ALL!

Wonderful. I just can't wait. I'm giddy with anticipation. Let the viewer alienation begin. Yeeeesh.

By the way, just for the record, I also don't go near Oxygen, We, Lifetime, Hallmark, or SOAP.

Oxygen rocks for two reasons. The nearly constant Xena reruns, and when those aren't on they're showing the criminally underrated La Femme Nikita. So you've got a channel which gives me Lucy Lawless or Peta Wilson seemingly 18 out of 24 hours each day. It reminds me of the old joke about magazines. Men's magazines are filled with pictures of naked women, and women's magazines are filled with...pictures of naked women. Well in this case the woman's channel keeps a man very happy if he knows how to look at it ;)

Well, they are already developing the Clique love-fest, so the WWF/E is already getting a jump on the gay porn channel name.

Damn you, you beat me to it.

While we're at it, someone needs to make an 24-Hour News channel. I mean, all those shows like Larry King and The O'Reilly Factor are really picking up ratings.

At least we're getting closer and closer to the alt.tasteless endorsed "The Violence Channel".

Click Here (groups.google.ca)

7:00 to 7:30 am: Classic Cartoon Violence
Looney Toons with all the payoff scenes put back in.

7:30 to 8:00 am: Classic Live Action Violence
All of The Three Stooges classics!

8:00 to 8:30 am: The Itchy And Scratchy Show
You loved their 30 second vignettes on The Simpsons, imagine 30 minutes
uninterupted by commercials (The Violence Channel does not show commercials during
children's programming).
