A&E Acquires Lifetime, This Calls for an Intervention Marathon


A&E has officially acquired Lifetime television. As far as I can tell A&E plays nothing but Intervention and re-runs of CSI: Miami. Lifetime airs ridiculous movies about how everyone and everything is plotting against women. Lifetime could air a movie about a single mom struggling to raise her children alone after their father abandons them due to his increasing alcoholism, then on A&E they air an Intervention episode on alcoholism. Nice, right? Feel free to set me up as head of programming.

Unfortunately, both channels say programming will not change- essentially because the deal is only one that will change tax documents and little else. A&E is owned as a joint venture between NBC Universal, Hearst Group, and Disney/ABC. Lifetime was previously a partnership between Disney/ABC and Hearst Group. So now NBC is getting in on the action.
