Viacom Drops Stewart
Viacom stations drop `Martha Stewart Living’ [otbblog/jamesotb]
“Martha Stewart Living,” Stewart’s hour-long daily syndicated lifestyle show, has been dropped by the Viacom station group, a CBS spokesman said Monday.
WBBM-Ch. 2, the Viacom-owned CBS station in Chicago, said Friday night’s broadcast of Stewart’s show was the station’s last. Channel 2 will replace the show by joining CBS News’ overnight newscast one hour earlier.
Considering that Stewart is likely going to prison, this seems like a rather unnecessary move.
