Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild - TBS (U.S. TV channel) - Netflix
TBS is an American basic cable and satellite television channel owned by Turner Broadcasting System. TBS carries a variety of programming, with a focus on comedy, along with some sports events, including Major League Baseball and the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. In its current form, TBS was originally established on December 17, 1976 as a national feed of Turner's local, independent broadcast television station in Atlanta, WTCG. The decision to begin offering WTCG via satellite transmission expanded the small independent station into a national cable channel; with the renaming of the broadcast station in 1979, the feed became known as Superstation WTBS, and later Superstation TBS, TBS Superstation, or simply TBS. The channel broadcast a variety of programming during this era, including films, syndicated series, Atlanta Braves baseball, and professional wrestling (including Georgia Championship Wrestling, and later World Championship Wrestling). WTBS's local programming was nearly identical to the national feed, aside from FCC-mandated public affairs and educational programming that only aired on the local signal. By the early 2000s, TBS had begun to focus more intensively on comedic programming, including sitcoms and other series. On October 1, 2007, WTBS and the TBS Superstation feed were separated, with WTBS re-launching as the Atlanta-specific Peachtree TV (now owned by the Meredith Corporation), and TBS becoming a conventional basic cable network with no over-the-air simulcast as had been previously the case. As of January 2016, 94.3 million households have received TBS.
Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild - Turner Time - Netflix
On June 29, 1981, TBS (as SuperStation WTBS) began to use an off-time scheduling format for its programming known as “Turner Time.” While program offerings on other broadcast and basic cable channels generally began at the top and bottom (:00 and :30 minutes) of each hour, TBS decided to begin airing programs five minutes later, at :05 and :35 minutes past the hour. Programs seen on TBS were listed under their own time entry in TV Guide, during the period in which the magazine published log listings, as a result of this scheduling, thus enabling the program listings to catch potential viewers' eyes more readily. The use of “Turner Time” also encouraged channel surfers who could not find anything interesting to watch at the top of the hour to still be able to watch a program on TBS without missing the first few minutes. Most importantly, since shows ended five minutes later than normal, from a strategic standpoint the off-time scheduling usually encouraged viewers to continue watching TBS rather than turning to another channel to watch a program that would already be airing in progress. TBS reduced its use of the “Turner Time” scheduling in 1997 and switched entirely to conventional start times at the top and bottom of the hour by 2000. However, unconventional start times continue to be used for movies airing on the channel – whose running times may vary depending on the film's length with commercials added to pad the timeslot (for example, a movie that starts at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time may cause subsequent programming to start within the half-hour, such as at :15 and :45 after the hour). This often causes major disruptions in the start times of programming. In some circumstances, conventional “top-and-bottom” start times would not be restored until early the next morning. While this is not exactly related to the “Turner Time” format, it may strategically serve the same purposes due to the off-time scheduling. The “Turner Time” format is similar to the scheduling applied by most premium channels and certain other movie-oriented services (which schedule the start of programs in variable five-minute increments); other broadcast and cable channels have utilized similar off-time scheduling formats (such as Telemundo – which utilizes a “Turner Time”-style scheduling for programs during the first two hours of prime time – and Viacom-owned channels such as Nick at Nite, MTV and TV Land).
