The Nashville Network
The National Network
TNN parent CBS Corporation (formerly Westinghouse Broadcasting) was acquired by Viacom in 2000. That same year, "The Nashville Network" became "The National Network", as it adopted a general entertainment schedule similar to USA Network, TBS and TNT to distinguish it from sister network CMT.
TNN was renamed as "Spike TV" in 2003.
A new logo for Spike was introduced in May 2006 and removed the word "TV" from the name.
On March 3, 2015, Viacom unveiled a new logo and on-air presentation for Spike, as they repositioned the network as a general entertainment network with more women-oriented programming for the first time since its TNN days. Spike was also launched with this logo in the United Kingdom a month later on April 15, 2015.
On Febuary 8, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Viacom will rename Spike to the Paramount Network in 2018.
