Tyler Perry is getting his very own network. I will gladly give up one of the 20 Jesus/public access channels on my Comcast lineup to quarantine all that quality programming.

Lionsgate is looking to follow Oprah Winfrey and launch a new cable TV network anchored by Tyler Perry.

‘Browns’ film is next pairing for Perry, Lionsgate5 Facts About Tyler Perry’Tyler Perry’ special promotes new film“Tyler is one of those rare resources that one could launch a channel with. We have a lot of options if we choose to go down that path,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told financial analysts Wednesday after posting a surprise first quarter profit on Tuesday.

Now let’s see how much of an audience he has.

Lionsgate has a first look deal with Perry and ten of his films that the mini-major has released since 2005 have grossed around $520 million at the North American box office.

Perry’s films, stage plays and DVDs have also sold more than 40 million DVD and digital units.

God bless him.

Recall Results Badger Some

leave a comment »

Six badgers had guns pointed at their heads by Hobbit terrorists with $30 million to spend. When the smoke cleared, four were left standing and the defenses held.

Democrats failed late Tuesday in their effort to gain control of the Wisconsin state senate as Republican incumbents won four of six recall elections.

The outcome was a big setback for Democrats, organized labor, and progressive groups who’d sought retribution against six GOP allies of Gov. Scott Walker, who earlier this year enacted a labor law overhaul that ended collective bargaining rights for many public sector workers.

The recall elections attracted millions of dollars of investment from both liberals and conservatives across the nation.

Most at risk as voting started Tuesday appeared to be three Republicans, Alberta Darling, Randy Hopper and Dan Kapanke, all of whom had barely won their races in 2008.

Good job, Wisconsin. Now give at least one of those two fleebaggin’ fleebaggers the recall ban-hammer next week.
