To anyone who doesn't like Spike now, you should have seen it when it was called The Nashville Network (TNN). Only reason to watch for me was ECW Wrestling.

I remember TNN.

I wasn't watching Pro Wrestling back then so I literally never tuned into that channel.

TLC (formerly 'The Learning Channel') has taken that title away from MTV with non-stop marathons of 'Honey Boo-Boo'.



More damage than terrorists ever could have done.

Let's be honest here. UFC needed Spike Tv. Spike had WWE RAW at the time. Spike did not need UFC. UFC needed TUF. They needed TUF to be a hit [even though Dana White didn't want it. He wanted a show about himself] because they were losing money hand over fist [no $100K nightly gambling trips back then] If TUF didn't do well the UFC probably would not have survived or would have to have been sold again. UFC needed the lead in from RAW.

Spike TV made TUF which made the UFC. Dana White should show a little appreciation for once in his life.

Spike does have pretty awful programming but to be fair they also have some decent shows. As said before Ireally like deadliest warrior and auction hunters also. Especially since A.H. added Carolyn she is FAP worthy.

That show does have a disclaimer that's it's fake.

At least it admits it's scripted garbage, unlike the other 99% of scripted garbage.
