For just $2.99 a month, the Los Angeles Times will now deliver to your home a weekly 44-page tabloid-format TV news section, the TV Times. What's in it? TV listings, mostly! "24-hour daily grid listings spanning morning, afternoon, primetime and late-night programming, four pages of alphabetized TV/cable/satellite movie listings, a full-page cover story, a TV-related crossword puzzle, episode highlights and synopses, and a dedicated sports programming page." This is it! Someone has finally figured out the business model of the future! Okay, I'm being sarcastic, and that's rude. I hope the ad space makes them money! With the LA Times entertainment site's web traffic down from over 21 million views a month last September to just over 11 million this May, they're gonna need it to create all the revenue they can.
