MyNetworkTV Hemorrhaging


Newscorp’s MyNetworkTV is losing something like $2 million a week according to the Wall Street Journal! Ouch! And then there’s the dismal ratings, reportedly as low as 0.5 ratings points and 2% share, so naturally Newscorp has started tweaking the programming to try and stop the bleeding.

MediaWeek reports that as of March 8 MNTV is removing some of the soaps and replacing them with martial arts competition on one night and two nights of movies.
