 TBS (TV network) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
TBS Superstation is well known for broadcasting reruns of popular network television and cable shows from the past.
TBS, which originally stood for Turner Broadcasting System, was originally WTCG, a UHF terrestrial television station owned by media mogul Ted Turner that broadcasted from Atlanta, Georgia, during the late 1970s.
Currently, the focus of TBS is comedy related, focusing on sitcoms and originally produced reality series, using the slogan "Very Funny." It is intended as a direct contrast to sister network TNT, which currently focus on drama-related programs.
