- DirecTV and Viacom remain at an impasse on a new contract. As a result, Spike TV, Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, BET, CMT, TV Land and Comedy Central were removed from the satellite provider earlier this week. In an effort to push fans to turn up the heat on DirecTV, Viacom has removed free access to some of their programming on their websites, like The Jersey Shore and The Daily Show.

- ImpactWrestling.com and Spike.com will provide live online streaming from Comic Con on Friday, which will include an appearance by TNA Knockouts champion Miss Tessmacher. You can check it out tomorrow at 4:00pm ET/1:00pm PT by clicking here.
