The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

13 June 2003

Just slightly Spiked

The planned unveiling of Viacom's Spike TV, the replacement for The Network Formerly Known As Nashville, has been put on hold; a New York judge has issued an injunction against Viacom at the request of Spike Lee, who believes that the name is an infringement upon his persona.

No word from director Spike Jonze, the late bandleader Spike Jones, or Buffy's erstwhile boyfriend.

TrackBacks if any:

Well, I'd guess Buffy's Spike would have a pretty god claim. After all, isn't he a couple hundred years old?

Certainly more convincing than Lee's, if you ask me.
