|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
Variety Magazine is an entertainment trade publication first published in 1905. At its inception, it covered the business dealings of vaudeville. Since then, it has expanded to cover other facets of the entertainment industry as they have arisen, namely film and television.
Variety is best known for its slanguage, the unique language it employs in its headlines to condense long tidbits of information down to a few words.
