Sorry, Oprah. No exclusive Tyler Perry love for you.

He's going to be your competition!!!

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer announced today that the studio is looking to launch a new cable TV network backed soley by the "rare piece of talent" known as Tyler Perry.

Jon revealed in as little detail as possible that the plan is to "buy and rebrand a not-fully distributed channel, or pursue a 'nesting strategy' with a channel it already has, including TV Guide." He then added:

“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."

TylerTV, huh? Sounds promising. But honestly, if anyone should be worried, it should be Lifetime, not Oprah.

We've got three words for you: TylerTV Original Movies.

He already comes out with two features a year! No way he won't extend that into his new network!

    Chicago once again held its weekly program directors meeting and the main topic was an award MTV suddenly invented called Best Video with a Message, despite announcing other nominees the week before. So, why was this category “suddenly” added? According to radio programmer Jared Stelling, this award was added because Lady Gaga threw a fit.
