New Current TV CEO Mark Rosenthal is planning on giving an MTV-style makeover to the network that will result in 80 lay-offs (25% of their staff) and the termination of current programming director, David Neuman.

Rosenthal previously served as president of MTV Networks and will do what he did to MTV… fuck it up by taking away short form content and replacing it with half hour and hour long programming. And most of those programs they’ll be airing will be acquired from somewhere else. So it’ll be generic repeat crap. yay.
