The Music Factory is owned by Viacom, who also own the VH-1 and MTV channels, and their output in the UK is becoming more and more based on reality TV shows rather than music. VH-1 didn’t give a reason for the change, and said that they’d only just decided to bring it forward and move it to TMF.

Yahoo! Movies has the first exclusive trailer for The Rock’s movie ‘Doom’, based on the popular PC game. The two minute trailer gives you a good indication of how most of the action sequences were shot – just like the actual game. Anything that involves fighting monsters is done in first person, you will only see the weapon on your screen and the inside of the building and not the actual actor behind the weapon. The movie is scheduled for release on October 21st.
