Just in, from a post by WorldPicture at the Lionhead Forum:
The CEO of World Studios Pat Devine has made a final decision tonight that TMO TV will be 100% owned by the World Studios Group. The decision came down to a couple of reasons. Number 1 Pat Devine never finalized the deal that was put on the table by Jake. Pat Devine knows that this is his number one outside promotion on TMO right now and has been very successful in it's inaugural three months. TMO TV has attracted thousands of viewers and should hit 50,000 views by early spring this year.
There was alot of controversy and debates after our crew left the studio yesterday over a non-finalized deal with Jakemoviemaker in a collaboration for TMO TV Anytime with Jake TV and TMO TV, but it also meant that Jake would have 100% ownership over TMO TV and all of its library. That seemed to be a bad and rushed idea. So me being the head speaker of World Studios I put it in the hands of our boss Pat Devine who returned from business on New Year's Day. He didn't like the deal and thought the only good thing about it was the amount of extra views that TMO TV could get. The main focus is to broaden our audience and give studios from TMO a chance to display their hard work to new viewers.
TMO TV Company has just been officially opened for business. TMO TV Company will be operated by the good people at World Studios and the CEO will be Pat Devine. The TMO TV Company will own all of our promotions like film company World Pictures, World Television Group, TMO TV, Critic's Center, People's Pics, CCWE, Review Trader on Review Rotation, and the upcoming opening of MPOW's WP Help Center.
Note: CCWE will start production this week.
Under the new reestablished deal for TMO TV some new agreements had to be made in order to protect the future of TMO TV and they're as followed:
TMO TV Company owns the rights for ownership and operation of TMO TV until June 30, 2007. World Studios people will operate the network also.
1.) No one can challange or ask for ownership for TMO TV until summer 2007.
2.) 300,000 VCs will be put up if TMO TV is sold in the summer.
3.) TMO TV Regular Season is ran from Tuesday October 24, 2006-Sunday May 27, 2007.
4.) TMO TV Season Finale Slate is ran from Monday May 28, 2007-Thursday June 21, 2007.
5.) All new networks under TMO TV must get a deal through our sister station.
6.) We will accept negotiations of any new on the table deals.
The decision could've been announced earlier, but our studio owners from Sony needed the studio in order to take care of movie deal for rights.
So on the behalf of World Studios were sorry to everyone who may have gotten hurt in this and also Jake for being exposed on this decision.

From a post by WorldPictures at the Lionhead forums:
TMO TV Winter Wonderland is here
The WORLD10 List is avaliable in the next post featuring the TOP 10, The Best 40, & Wild Cards!
TMO TV Winter Wonderland presents an array of telecasts. It includes over 20 different presentations making it our biggest airing in history. So many things to see guys. TMO TV Winter Wonderland includes our Hall of Fame Ceremony with fireworks featuring Canadian's favorite band Nickelback, Pusssy Cat Dolls, and John Legend.
We also have our Battle of the TV Shows featuring brand new episodes and pilots from Casual Thursdays, Saturday Morning Cartoons, TGIF Friday Comedies, Imagination Wednesdays, and Sunday Premieres. We also have the TMO TV premiere of The Manny Jones Show 3 up.
The BIG 12 Hall of Famers are:
Everything in our calendar for the next three weeks is tentative, but it gives you an idea on how everything should go. We are now going to be airing things not on a daily basis. The day things are released will now more than likely not match with the promotion night because we donít have enough time in the studio to get it done.
From a post by WorldPictures:
Very good news came out of World Studios today as we got huge numbers from the debut of Action Night. TMO TV so far hasn't shown any signs of decline from it's launch, but a rise in the viewership, especially among outside viewers.
TMO TV has seen it's biggest one day ratings since The Disciple Part 1 premiered. Also TMO TV's average has seen it's biggest height at 96 views per site, passing the 80 views record set by Imagination Wednesday telecast of Jhurst's Mechanisms.
Action Night received 1,043 views in one day back on Tuesday November 28, 2006. In total right now it has tallied up 2,937 views (2nd best behind Sunday Premieres.)
Brother's Keeper got 1,824 initial views and 1,113 views for Bind. Action Night won't have the luxury of getting extra viewers because TGIF Friday Comedies will take over during the weekend.
-Ratings note here, they have been decreased to fit the realistic ratings of the nielson charts. This is the official 4th ratings report and the second in one week.
World Studios with VMPAI, Jhurst, Sony Music Studios, and WP Diva Search 2007 proudly presents TMO TV, where TMO changes it's viewing habits. Nobody Does It Better where the chicks really dig TMO TV.
There is a new online television network now showing at computer near you. WorldPictures, in association with the Virtual Motion Picture Academy, is bringing to you a network with a collaboration of shows that is guaranteed to entertain and delight: TMO TV!
Note that the official TMO TV site is still being set up and it is with great honor that Hursto Presto Studios was asked to host the first shows for the network this upcoming October 24, 2006. Keep an eye out on The Movies forum for official news. I'll pass it on here once I get it. Note that Hursto Presto Studios is only a contributor and not affiliated with TMO TV.
