Scary news, TV fans.
The Associated Press reports this morning that media giant Viacom is warning Time Warner Cable if the two can't reach a deal by midnight, Viacom's 16 networks will go dark.
Why should that concern you?
Viacom owns MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and TV Land, among others. So if your kids love "SpongeBob Squarepants" or if you're addicted to "South Park," you could have a problem.
