TwoP Sells Out!

You have to read it to believe it:

NEW YORK – March 13, 2007 – Bravo announced today the network's first-ever media acquisition, TelevisionWithoutPity.com, a premiere internet destination for the discerning television "junkie."

From Bravo head honcho Lauren Zalaznick:

"TelevisionWithoutPity is an online brand destination for the impassioned and opinionated television viewer, which mirrors the exact attributes of Bravo's core audience," said Zalaznick. "This will broaden the scope of our sites to create a community where smart people with something to say about their favorite shows, past and present, can get together under the umbrella of Bravo's pop sensibility."

Congratulations are in order (we think) to TwoP founders Tara Ariano and Sarah Bunting who say: "We only did this to make our ongoing project of stalking Tim Gunn a bit easier," Read the whole thing.

Listen, we all know that Bravo's message boards were in a sorry state of affairs. But TwoP? Won't it be a bit hard for the community to continue its legendary sense of cynical snark now that its under the corporate umbrella?

Memo to Bravo: Tbone is not for sale! (Well, I suppose that depends on the price...)
