About the Paramount Network

The Paramount Network originally started life as The Nashville Network way back in March 1983. It primarily focused on programming that resonated with Southern culture and tastes. Early programming included motor racing coverage, country music, and outdoor and variety shows.

In 1983, the Gaylord Entertainment Company acquired the network. In 1991, it began phasing the country music segments over to another channel the company acquired: CMT which was supposed to be similar to MTV or CW. This left TNN’s primary focus on lifestyle and entertainment programming. In 1999, both Westinghouse Broadcasting acquired both TNN and CMT. Viacom, in 19999 turns, acquired Westinghouse. In 2001, it underwent a rebranding and emerged as the National Network.

Spike TV emerged after another major rebranding in 2003. By this time, the network had acquired high-rated shows like WWF Raw. It soon shifted its focus towards a wider audience, primarily young Middle American males like ABC. In June 2018, the network moved its headquarters to Paramount Pictures, Los Angeles. Around the same time it underwent another major rebranding and emerged as the popular channel millions of viewers subscribe to, that is, the Paramount Network on Optimum.
