 WB Television Network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Much like its competitor UPN, the WB was a reaction to the success of the upstart Fox Network and first-run syndicated programming during the late 1980s and early 1990s such as Baywatch, as well as the erosion in ratings suffered by independent television stations due to the growth of cable television and movie rentals.
A few years after its launch, The WB intentionally shifted its programming to capture what it perceived to be a heavily fragmented market by marketing to the under-courted teen demographic.
Because of this, in January 2006, the weekday afternoon block of Kids' WB was replaced by Daytime WB, which is composed of the syndication of ER and 8 Simple Rules.
