Viacom is the latest to smack down Google TV

This is turning into a fiasco. Viacom has blocked shows from MTV, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central from Google TV devices. No Jersey Shore, no Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert, no Spongebob. This comes soon on the heels of Google TV being blocked by ABC, NBC, and CBS. Engadget reports that Viacom has, in the past, sued Google over content showing up on Google-owned YouTube, so we know there is bad blood already here. That leaves Time Warner. So, if you're an ESPN fan, looks like you'll have something to watch. Otherwise, you're out of luck.

AND NOW, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MARIO LOPEZ!
