    It could work as long as they don’t let the powers that be make them sign off on disgusting black inferiority movies like they Precious.

    It would be great, but I won’t see it because I’m not paying to upgrade my already expensive cable package to add OWN.

    I’m not a fan of TP, so I’m going to reserve judgement on this move.
