TruTV shakeup as COO leaves company

TTTruTV has announced that Mark Juris, the COO and an executive vice president at the company, has left the company. The news broke wise today when Steve Koonin, Turner Entertainment Networks president, published a memo that went throughout the company (which obviously owns TruTV).

"Today the company is announcing the departure of our colleague Marc Juris. As executive vice president and chief operating officer of truTV, Marc has provided valuable leadership, especially through the network's rebranding and subsequent audience growth," the memo read. "I have already begun the process of evaluating truTV's current and future leadership needs so that we can choose the right executive to lead the network. We are extremely grateful to Marc for his many contributions to our business, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

The news is a bit surprising, as the network has announced a bunch three new series, five new pilots, and a continuation of Shaquille O'Neal's Upload series, as well as Guinness World Records Gone Wild. 

The network is actively targeting "funseekers" with its programing, which it describes as comedy fans at or near the network's median viewership age of 35.

Do you watch TruTV? Is there anything the network airs that you really enjoy? I have to be honest - I am not sure I have watched a minute of its programing ever.

Shaqs show is awful. Racial tones and just trying to do tosh. Not funny.

I like shaq but that show sucks, and the world records show is horrible too, just boring. I miss the old TruTV when it was CourtTV i think. forensic files and things like that.
