TV Network

The Resume

    (April 29, 1996- )
    Owned by MTV Networks, a division of Viacom
    Mostly airs classic series
    Presents the TV Land Awards (2003- )

Why TV Land might be annoying:

    In an attempt to change their audience from Baby Boomers to Gen X, they switched to recent shows such as Scrubs, Just Shoot Me and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (2007).
    Most of its attempts at original programming, such as 'ALF's Hit Talk Show' and 'I Pity the Fool' with Mr. T, have been short-lived.
    It turned over three hours of its morning airtime to infomercials (2008).
    It caused an unexpected controversy by erecting a statue of Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery in Salem, Massachusetts.

Why TV Land might not be annoying:

    It gave up the Gen X programming and returned to classic TV (2008).
    It became one of the ten highest-rated cable networks (1999).
    Its TV Land Awards spoof other show biz award ceremonies.
    Its other TV Icon statues - such as Mary Tyler Moore in Minneapolis, Andy Griffith and Ron Howard in Raleigh, North Carolina and Happy Days' Henry Winkler in Milwaukee have avoided Bewitched-level scandals.
