Had an interesting conversation with Jeff Patterson from IUMA (a great
guy by the way). He sez that MTV is emphasizing formatted half-hour
shows because the way TV ratings work, you have to have half-hour shows.
They can now up the ad prices on their rate cards because they can show
ratings for their (game) shows.


Watch the Dennis Rodman Show on MTV (14 weekly episodes, started a few
weeks ago) - there are FOUR Galactic tracks being used for background
music... I don't have cable, so I'd like to know if anyone who has the
CD hears the songs...
