Viacom Replaces Martha with 'Janet Jackson Living'
by Scott Ott

(2004-03-08) -- Viacom, the parent company of CBS and UPN, today announced that it would drop Martha Stewart's show and replace it with a new program called 'Janet Jackson Living' which it described as "a live, cutting edge fashion show."

In a brief statement, Viacom President and COO Mel Karmazin said, "Now that we know that Martha lied to federal investigators, we can't in good conscience allow her to give decorating advice to our nation's impressionable homemakers."

Mr. Karmazin said, "Janet Jackson Living is aimed at 8-14 year-old girls struggling with significant garment issues."
