Network Description & Basic Information (Source: wikipedia.org)

Spike TV is a cable television network that began as The Nashville Network (TNN), founded by Gaylord Entertainment Company and Group W Satellite Communications in March 1983. TNN was renamed Spike in 2003 after a brief outcry by filmmaker Spike Lee.

Spike TV continues to operate as part of MTV Networks, owned by Viacom. It has scored some major coups in terms of its programming, receiving exclusive syndication rights to several Star Trek series (which was produced by another Viacom branch, Paramount Pictures), as well as most of the James Bond film series. It is also the cable home to television's #1 show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

In November 2004, Spike TV purchased the cable/satellite syndication rights to CSI: New York for a record price of US$1.9 million per episode. The show is expected to join the network's line up in late 2005.

Spike TV also occasionally airs Rocko's Modern Life and Spongebob Squarepants, due to both of these Nickelodeon shows' high popularity with adult men.

As of September 2005, all WWE (formerly WWF) programming on Spike TV will move back to its original cable home, NBC Universal's USA Network as a result of acrimonious contractual matters between WWE and Viacom.
