NBCUniversal has announced that it is shuttering Television Without Pity, the site where many of us read our first recap of The Gilmore Girls and American Idol and first became acquainted with the term snark. Daily Candy will also be shutting down. NBCUniversal is closing the sites because the company couldn't find a sustainable business model for the sites to continue creating original content, nor could they find a buyer. Goodbye Television Without Pity. I'm going to put on the Veronica Mars sweatshirt I once bought from you and mourn the loss of GilmoreGuy, my internet forum crush of the late 90s.
