Origins

My Network TV arose as a result of the announcement of The CW, which will essentially merge The WB and UPN. Fox Television Stations Group owned several UPN affiliates, including WWOR in New York, New York; KCOP in Los Angeles, California; and WPWR-TV in Chicago, Illinois, the three biggest stations in the network. Fox had bought most of them after acquiring most of the television holdings of Chris-Craft Industries, cofounder of UPN along with Paramount Pictures (which was acquired by Viacom around the time of UPN's founding). Despite concerns about UPN's future at the time of Fox's purchase of the three stations, UPN renewed its affiliation deals with the stations in 2003 for three seasons. That agreement, and some others', pending expiration in 2006 gave UPN parent CBS Corporation and The WB parent Warner Bros. a rare opportunity to merge the two networks. WWOR-TV, channel nine, is currently the New York City affiliate station of the UPN television network. ...

In 1971, the division was renamed VIACOM (Video & Audio Communications), and in 1973 it was spun off, amid new FCC rules forbidding television networks from owning syndication companies (the rules were later repealed). ... CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS) is a media conglomerate focused largely on the United States market, specifically broadcasting, publishing, billboards, and television production. ... Warner Bros. ...


The CW included no Fox-owned stations; the New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago affiliations all went to stations owned by The WB's co-owner, Tribune Broadcasting. In response, Fox scrubbed all UPN references from its UPN affiliates' logos and promotions, and stopped promoting the network's programs. Tribune Broadcasting is a group of radio and television stations located throughout the United States which are owned and operated by the Tribune Company, a media conglomerate based in Chicago, Illinois. ...


Media reports speculated that the Fox-owned UPN affiliates would all become independent, or join with the other UPN and The WB affiliates The CW left out to form another network. Fox parent News Corp chose the latter course, and announced My Network TV on February 22, less than a month after CBS and Warner Bros. announced The CW on January 24. News Corp may have chosen the name My Network TV for synergistic means, as it also owns the popular networking website MySpace.com.

Programming

Programming will air from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific time) every night of the week except Sunday.

Given that My Network TV will air two programs six days a week produced by 20th Television (Fox's syndication unit), its programming is more akin to a syndication model, such as the Prime Time Entertainment Network, Operation Primetime, or The Disney Afternoon, than the existing major broadcast networks. Indeed, Fox had aimed Desire for syndication prior to the My Network TV announcement. Fox Plaza, the company headquarters. ...

These were Catwalk, a series similar to America's Next Top Model; On Scene, a crime-based news magazine produced by Fox News; an American version of the quiz show Britain's Brainiest; and an American version of the ITV series Celebrity Love Island.

On March 6, 2006, Sinclair Broadcast Group announced that 17 of its stations, mostly affiliates of The WB but also a few from UPN and some independent stations, would become My Network TV affiliates in September 2006. This occurred despite the widespread presumption that affiliation with The CW, which at this point was still available in most markets, would be more valuable; however, Sinclair implied that My Network TV was more financially attractive for the company. Some of the markets the 17 Sinclair stations occupy include Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Tampa, Florida; Cincinnati, Ohio; San Antonio, Texas; Birmingham, Alabama; Raleigh, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Until July 21, it was thought that Boston, the fifth largest in the country, did not have an affiliate. However, WZMY based out of Derry NH told station e-mail subscribers that they will be affiliating with MyNetwork TV.


In Boston, Fox has stated that its owned-and-operated WFXT would carry the network from 1pm-3pm if My Network TV does not find an affiliate. With WZMY, this is now unclear. [6][7] If this happens, WFXT would be one of five stations to affiliate with both FOX and My Network TV, the others being WMQF, WOHL, WNTZ, and KWKT. In Oklahoma City, the CW will be seen on Sinclair Broadcast Group's WB affiliate KOCB, the only Sinclair-owned CW affiliate not in the same market as a Sinclair- or Fox-owned My Network TV affiliate. The local UPN affiliate is KAUT, recently purchased by the New York Times Company from CBS Corporation. KAUT, which at the time had just been sold off by CBS, was briefly listed as a CW affiliate on the press release announcing the network. There are no signs that NYT is leaning towards My Network TV affiliation or away from it, and currently, there is no My Network TV affiliate in Oklahoma City.

Due to the availability of "instant duopoly" digital subchannels, that will likely be easily available on cable and satellite, and the overall lack of a need to settle for a secondary affiliation with shows aired in problematic timeslots, both the CW and MNTV will be launching with far greater national coverage than that enjoyed by UPN and the WB when they started in 1995. UPN for several years had gaps in the top 30 markets, and by 2005 managed to reach only 85% of the population. This resulted in secondary affiliations with other networks. In those markets, programs were either shown out of their intended timeslots or not at all. Examples included Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise; when they were pre-empted, there were many viewer complaints. The starship Voyager (NCC-74656), an Intrepid-class starship. ...

Branding

Many Fox owned-and-operated stations are likely to brand local programming with the My moniker. An example is My9 and My9 News for WWOR. A moniker (or monicker) is a pseudonym, or cognomen, which one gives to oneself. ...


Several stations have already changed their on-air identities to accommodate for the upcoming network, including all of the Fox Television Stations Group-owned stations, plus WMYT, the only station so far that has changed both its callsign and its branding. Affiliates have begun to show promotions for the network featuring the theme of "Entertainment you can call your own." WMYT-TV Channel 55 (known on-air as My TV 12, a reference to its cable channel location) is The WB affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina. ...


The station name changes are going ahead despite one potential hurdle: There is at least one station that already uses the "My TV" moniker. WZMY Derry, New Hampshire filed a trademark for the "myTV" name in the summer of 2005, and may file a lawsuit against Fox for "My Network TV." [8] On July 21, 2006, an e-mail was sent to MyTV subscribers that WZMY will become a MyNetworkTV Affiliate. WZMY is an independent television station serving Southern New Hampshire and the northern fringes of the Boston market. ... Derry is a town located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire. ...
