MTV To Air All-New IT GETS BETTER Special Tonight @ 11pm EST

MTV (and Logo) will be showing  an all new, 60-minute IT GETS BETTER Special special tonight, October 9th  at 11 p.m. ET/PT, just two days ahead of National Coming Out Day.

In the less than two years, since the It Gets Better Project started it has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring more than 50,000 user-created videos viewed more than 50 million times. To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of “Glee”, Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen Degeneres, Suze Orman, the staffs of The Gap, Google, Facebook, Pixar, the Broadway community, and many more.

The awesome and out spoken Dan Savage, columnist, gay activist, and co-creator of the It Gets Better Project, will once again anchor the special, which will share stories and experiences of young people who are growing up LGBT.

The first “It Gets Special” special premiered on MTV and Logo on Feb. 21, 2012 and can still be viewed on MTV.com.

RuPaul Demands A “Rupology” From Direct-TV For Dropping LOGO – We’ll Just Say Thank You

Ru Paul is mad as hell that DirectTV has dropped OH-NO LOGO-TV from its current lineup.

DirecTV Group Inc. stopped carrying channels owned by Viacom Inc.this past week because of a contract dispute.

Viacom and DirecTV have had an agreement for seven years, which Viacom says meant that it has been paid below-market rates for the programming. DirecTV, meanwhile, says Viacom is asking for too much money.

Unfortunately Viacom also owns MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central so they also went bye-bye.

Oh Ru, too many years of tucking has obviously cut off the blood to your brain permanently.

Viacom should apologize to us for trying to shake us down for more money after making LOGO unwatchable and absolute shite.  (Also Viacom is being incredibly greedy)   And if you think the loss of LOGO is a good pitch point to use to make people call DirectTV think again girl.

Bitch we all hate fucking LOGO!
