CUTTING THEIR LOSSES: Time Warner Cable President & COO Rob Marcus yesterday said that TWC "lost customers as a result of the recent monthlong blackout of CBS" in major markets. Marcus said that the blackout "suppressed sign-ups of new customers and 'increased disconnects of existing customers.'" The WALL STREET JOURNAL's Shalini Ramachandran notes Marcus "declined to provide a specific figure on the customer losses." However, CBS President & CEO Les Moonves said the blackout "didn't hurt us one iota financially" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/12).
