    Hearst, the legendary newspaper giant, is looking to purchase Paramount Communications for $3.5 Billion USD. Currently, Hearst owns King Features Syndicate and the proposed purchase could bring characters like Betty Boop and Popeye back into the Paramount fold after close to five decades apart. However, regulators from both parties want Hearst to sell its stakes in ESPN, A&E and Lifetime before the deal can close. Currently, Hearst co-owns the aforementioned networks with ABC. Another condition in the deal would call for Paramount to sell its 50% share of the USA Network Group, which Paramount co-owns with MCA. The boards of directors of both companies say it's too early to vote on the proposed acquisition and that further kinks would need to be ironed out.

    WCW's ratings have dipped about 40% over three years, but still have higher attendance than its competitors.

    After the implosion of Battle Dome, Vince Russo is now head of creative at IWA-Mid South.

    Requests from the RKO board to delete the shot were ignored by director Jessica Bendinger.

    Before I proceed, what were the biggest problems with X-Men: The Last Stand IOTL?

    I might do it a little different ITTL.

    I recall Doctor Who in the previous thread never got cancelled to begin with ITTL with Colin Baker staying on for longer. Wonder what has changed with the show since then?

    Well, I'd like to think that Peter Capaldi became The 7th Doctor in 1988 or something, then Frances de la Tour took over in 1992 - 1996 After that, Pierce Brosnan who lasted until 2001 when Eric Idle briefly took over and then Christopher Eccelston became The 11th Doctor in 2005.

    Hero Unplugged

    Gotta backtrack a little bit to talk about Hero Unplugged.

    Special thanks to @Goldwind2

    Released by RKO Radio Pictures on March 3, 2006
    Produced by RKO Animation (Formerly Murakami-Wolf-Swenson)

    Directed by Lee Unkrich
    Produced by Brad Bird
    Written by Meg LeFauve
    Music by Michael Giacchino

    VOICES
    Jaleel White as Rad the Racoon
    Danny Cooksey as Chopper the Coyote
    Jason Earles as Kyle the Gamer
    Rob Paulsen as Benji the Badger
    Francesca Smith as Rhonda
    Olivia Hack as Linda

    Plot summary courtesy of @Goldwind2
    A video game nerd named Kyle get a magic book or relic for his birthday and accidentally uses it to bring the main characters from a rare but poorly made platform game. The hero of the game, Rad Raccoon, has a huge ego; an edgy somewhat rude attitude and an outdated late 80's early 90's sense of cool. Chopper the coyote is a one dimensional villain with a laser equipped flying batter bike. Rad has a sidekick, a dumb badger named Benji and a stereotypical ditzy girlfriend who he keeps rescuing form Chopper named Rhoda Raccoon . Both of them worships the ground Rad treads and is obvious to how poorly Rad treats them. The charters lack of knowledge of the real world result in them causing some unintended mischief. However Rad goes completely psycho and try to takeover the world and make everybody worship him as the coolest thing ever when he read a review or watch a video that calls him lame. Chopper start developing a personality and decides that more to life then kidnapping Rhonda (For instance Football, Comics, Origami, baking cookies and needle Point). He also discovers he is a coward who is terrified of Rad. Rhoda falls under the influence of Kyle's Feminist sitter Linda who helps realize that Rad's a jerk and that she should stand up to him. So Rhoda take Choppers battle bike and try to stop rad's rampage. Benji is at first blindly following Rad and help him try to conquer the world, but Rhonda get though to him and he changes sides.

    Those who got to see Hero Unplugged in theatres got a glimpse of a trailer for Disney's upcoming animated feature Redaxes. Hero Unplugged was the directorial debut for Lee Unkrich, who had been a journeyman at other animation studios before settling down at RKO Animation. The film opened at #2 at the box office despite mixed reviews.​

    (Known IOTL as X-Men: The Last Stand)

    Released by Walt Disney Pictures on May 5, 2006, it is the last Disney release use the abstract castle logo, which the studio has used ITTL since the early 1980's.

    Music by John Ottman

    Changes made to this film ITTL are based on fixes proposed by Amino Apps user Nightwing007.
    (LINK)

    - Rather than be pushed to the back-burner as the B-story, the Dark Phoenix arc is brought more to the forefront ITTL.
    - Cyclops lives.
    - The love triangle involving Ice-Man, Rogue and Kitty Pryde is left out.
    - The Mutant Cure arc is scaled back to help the Dark Phoenix arc be the main focus.
    - Incidental X-Men/Brotherhood members who added little to nothing to the OTL film's plot are left out.

    Question. What is the timeline for home video formats in this TL? Does the Laserdisc or CED actually become more popular in this TL? (Probably not CED..)

    What about the VHS or Beta war that happened? I was curious. Also, when does YouTube become a thing in this TL?
