    So it can fail for a second time? The only reason whily it survived failure the first time was because it rebranded itself into the man's counterpart to Lifetime.

    Isn't TNN the network that turned into SpikeTV?

    It failed becauce like all Viacom owned cable networks (CMT, VH1-Classic, TV Land, etc.), Viacom ran TNN into the groud.

    It's coming back as a broadcast channel. Different approach. It may or may not succeed there, but I like seeing new content for the digital broadcast channels.

    I loved Pop Goes The Country with Ralph Emery. Great acts on that show.

    Put Hee Haw on a continuous loop, and I'm in. My dad made me watch that show every Sunday night. (This was in the 3-channel days for you young-uns).

    I hated it at the time, but as I've matured, let's just say I've come to appreciate its appeal to male viewers.
