It was estimated in 2005 that the WB was viewable by 91.66% of all households, reaching 90,282,480 houses in the United States.
When The WB was launched during the mid-1990s, the network began having most of its stations branded as "WB" or "The WB", then the channel number, with the call signs nearby.

The network was established as a direct result of changes in the television regulatory environment that year that allowed television networks to produce and syndicate more of their own programming.
The network was able to turn its slide around the following year, and for the first time in 2001, the network reached the coveted 5th place in ratings among overall TV households and in the 18-49 demographic.
