Goodbye WB, UPN - BREAKING NEWS
File this one under "Surprising News of the Day."
As of September, both the WB and UPN networks will cease to exist! That's because the CBS is joining forces with the WB to create a new 5th network, CW. It will feature "the best programming from CBS corporation and Warner Brothers," as the press release says. Each company will have a 50% interest in the company, and have a ten year agreement with Tribune/CBS stations around the country.
But seriously, the CW Network? That sounds
like the Country and Western Channel. They really have to come up with a different name.
(Thanks Patrick, Rick and Izzy!)
