Now confirmed by Broadcast. Frow taking charge of Comedy Central and MTV. No mention of Freeview, looks like it's just consolidation in the commissioning team behind the scenes.

Clearly the bosses at Viacom are happy with him hence giving him responsibility over two of their main brands.

It makes no difference to me. You just don’t want to burn all your bridges, you’ve moaned about Global too.


I totally get where you’re coming from and in regards to Global, I’ve only moaned about the way they’ve treated their two sets of graduate students and their pointless brand extensions.

I'm not one who works in the industry but looking at the rewards Ben Frow is getting for doing such an awful job it frustrates me that I didn't bother. Can only really see it that they see C5 as such a non-entitity nowadays he needs a couple of other channels to keep him busy.

5 SPIKE could equally go and I would probably never notice. It hasn't really made an impact and doesn't have any standout content.

You can say that about any C5 channel, including the main one.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I can't believe how poor the main C5 has become. Especially in peak time. They don't seem to show any films any more even at weekends, no drama, no US imports, no entertainment. Just wall to wall cheap documentaries. Sad.
