It's a shame that it's shocking to us when we hear about powerful business players doing good with their money! It happens less and less with the amount of greed in the world.

Sumner Redstone is one of those people that helps restore our faith a little bit, as he just donated $700k to benefit a Cambodian non-profit that helps impoverished children!

Justice has been served!

And, by justice, we of course mean cash will transfer hands!

While the company vehemently denies Kenneth Santucci and Evan Starkman violated Tonya during the filming of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins, MTV's parent company is deciding to settle after all!

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:

That interactive 'new media' experience that Viacom has dubbed the MTV O awards, will be back for a third installment of trying to break some musically-related Guinness world record.

For the first O Awards held in April 2011, rapper Chiddy of Chiddy Bang rapped for over nine hours in Las Vegas, breaking the records for Longest Freestyle Rap and the Longest Marathon Rapping.

Holy shiz!

In October, the O Awards headed to the Roxy Club in Hollywood and were successful in holding the longest-ever dance team marathon.

This year, the OMA's are raring to top Jay-Z's world record for most live concerts performed in multiple cities over a 24 hour period. Jay sets the bar at an impressive 7 cities.

On June 27th, the 24 hours+ livestream event will follow

Viacom Owes Rock Band Creators A Lot Of Dough

Filed under: MTVLegal MattersVH1

Viacom is regretting purchasing Rock Band creator Harmonix.

Arbitrators ruled that Viacom owes Harmonix shareholders $383 million. Viacom purchased the company so MTV and VH1 could hop on the Guitar Hero bandwagon.

Viacom initially payed $150 million bonuses to shareholders after purchasing Harmonix.

But due to high production costs, Viacom couldn't profit from 10 million Rock Band units being sold, so they wanted take-backsies.

Harmonix originally sued Viacom for $700 million. Viacom has countersued for arbitrators to look over facts left out of the initial hearing.

Who knew video games could be this imporant?
