So start looking for RAW ads in...June?

You know...all USA *really* needs is ANOTHER LOGO CHANGE.

Why would they change the logo? Read more like they're just using another advertising slogan.

Yeah...that bit about logos was just a joke (that apparently only I would get).

Just off the top of my head I think they've changed logos at least three times, and the last two times they've done it I've been underwhelmed.

A pair of bookending, wriggling jazz hands would punch it up.

Hey, I followed ya' on the logo joke. They had a logo that lasted all of one year, around 1996.

Dammit. You made me remember "Happy Hour", "Silk Stalkings", "the Muthafuckin' Farmclub", and all the other "shows that followed RAW". I think "La Femme Nikita" was in the bunch...but I rarely had the volume on when watching that.

    Duckman airs on Comedy Central.


It originated as a USA Original and has migrated to Comedy Central in syndication.

I'd say blow the whole thing up and call it "NBC 2," but then everyone between the ages of 18 and 49 would vacate the network in favor of FX, ABC Family and Spike TV.

Ned & Stacey and Boston Common...I think I saw every episode they did, back before the girl from Will and Grace made it big. There was another couple of shows, but Ned & Stacey is what I usually watched.

Never quite saw Law & Order: Anything as a "lighter feel" show, personally.

And I also think I am the only person who liked Happy Hour. I think I still have the episode where Dweezil and Lisa Loeb performed the Zombies "She's Not There".

In no way are you the only one who liked Happy Hour. Any show that can get Ryan Shamrock and Weird Al on their show surely deserves some kind of props.

That's where they showed reruns of Get a Life, right?

Not to get into the WAY BACK machine, but they really need to bring back NIGHT FLIGHT and Radio 1990.

What about Sunday Kung-Fu Theatre? I think I saw every single Wu-Tang movie on there.

Night Flight was quite awesome as well since they gave a young child of 13(or so...) his first look at Andy Warhol's DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN -AND- POWER RANGERS all in one night. The eighties concert footage from Top Of The Pops and other european shows was nice as well.
