Why truTV might be annoying
It is another media outlet owned by Ted Turner.
Like MTV, they drifted away from the original purpose of why the network was founded to focus on reality television.
They specialize in 'caught on video' reality programs.
They prefer to name their reality shows 'actuality.'
Why truTV might not be annoying
The name 'tru' is derived from the last three letters of the word 'Court' spelled backwards.
The idea was created by a bright young pastry chef named Jenni that was eaves-dropping when the marketing executives from Court TV were discussing their transition while ordering some raspberry truffles.
The executives fell in love with the idea so much, not only did they use that name change, they also gave away truffles to their staff every week.
They aired the inaugural first four round of the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
They also have international spinoffs in Latin America and Asia.
