Whoa, Momma!

Cable dispute could boot SpongeBob, your sanity



Spongebob If you're planning to park the kid in front of Nickelodeon on New Year's Day while you try to, um, wake up from toasting the new year, come up with Plan B just in case.

Some fee dispute between Viacom and Time Warner may darken Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and a bunch of other channels at 12:01 a.m. tonight. That means no SpongeBob SquarePants. No iCarly. No Drake and Josh. No Dora. No peace and quiet for your aching head.

Don't panic yet. These threats seem to come around every now and then while folks try to work through money issues. Chances are they'll work it out before drastic measures.

But just in case, have a movie ready to pop in the DVD player.
