Exclusive: Low ratings could end cable deal for Gore's Current TV
Reuters ^ | April 5, 2012 | Peter Lauria

Al Gore's Current TV has bigger problems to deal with than a potential lawsuit from fired news anchor Keith Olbermann - namely not getting kicked off Time Warner Cable for low ratings.

According to three sources with knowledge of the situation, Time Warner Cable Inc's carriage agreement with Current TV stipulates that, if the left-leaning political news network fails to meet a minimum threshold for overall viewers in a given quarter, financial penalties such as Current TV being required to increase marketing and promotion spending on the cable operator's systems are triggered.

Hey I got a great idea. Al Gore can merge with Oprah’s OWN network and they can both go down together. Can’t happen fast enough.

Liar Gore probably should have stuck with the internet, which he invented, after all, instead of banking on old technology.

Wait, people have to like it for it to stay on? That doesn't seem fair. Maybe the White Hut can step in and mandate that everyone watch two hours a day of Current, after all, it's good for them.

How is it that all these liberal radio and TV networks always fail, compared to the conservative outfits...and yet we are stuck with such a liberal threat to our very nation....like Obama who is odds on to win in 2012.

They don't fail. CBS, NBC, ABC, the cable channels, and public radio and television do all right. It's just that the market will only tolerate so much of the same thing, so new competitors have a tough time going after the same market share.
