John Sutherland, writing in the Guardian says the TLS, "may not, one fears, be around much longer", because of the recent sale of its stablemates the TES and the THES to the private equity group Exponent for £235m. Personally, I'd be gutted if it went. As Sutherland notes, the LRB, its only real rival, is, in fact, a quite different beast and the two complement one another. The supplements in the weekend papers are no substitute - especially as the Guardian's Review seems to have been relegated to a mere section of the newspaper, instead of a stand-alone magazine, since the paper's recent redesign.
