Welp! This is it, guys! It's 2012… and the world really is ending!

Viacom wants a 30% fee increase from DirecTV, but DirecTV says that's more than a billion dollars they don't wanna slap on their customers' bills.

Since they can't reach an agreement, channels like MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, BET, and Nickelodeon will (most likely) be yanked from DirecTV customers at midnight… TONIGHT!

DirecTV addresses the looming death of fun in its customers' households on their website:

NFL TV Rights Worth Over $3.2 Billion Per Year

Filed under: Business BlitzFootball

NFL worth billions on tv

Football is a pretty good business to be in these days because analysts say the National Football League's television profits are about to go up 60%!

An 8-year extension of the league's TV rights deal with broadcast partners CBS, Fox and NBC is promising the NFL $3.2 billion a year until 2021. That's more than double what they are raking in with their current contract.

But wait, there's more money to be had from the sport that every network wants a piece of. Sources report that previous deals with ESPN and DirecTV are expected to lock in another $6 billion in media fees for the NFL.

That's A LOT of money and it's only from the TV rights! Now imagine how much money the NFL is making with merchandise and ticket sales…

Can someone say, "CHA-CHING!"

…if we have DirecTV that is…

So basically, there's a whole lotta drama going down between DirecTV and FX!!!

Last week, DirecTV let Fox Networks know they were about to drop their a$$es if they couldn't agree on carriage fees. So then Fox was all like hey let's extend this but according to them, DirecTV told them hellll to the no unless they agreed to their demands.

So DirecTV wants to "suspend" the networks beginning Nov. 1. Word went around, eventually landing in Kurt Sutters' ears. Being the creator of FX's big hit Sons of Anarchy, this is going to affect him a lil bit.

So this is what he has to say about it:
