Back When It all Started

The network began life as The Nashville Network (TNN), in 1983. Back then it was a channel targeted towards the southern culture in the US. Unlike most channels at the time, it aired country music, motorsports, and variety shows.

The southern-influenced programming continued until 1999. Though it was more popular than the BBC, in some states, Viacom, decided it was time for a change. The channel underwent a serious revamp that included new off-network programming including sports. The revamp also changed the name to The National Network, keeping the original initials. The idea was to attract a wider audience.

In 2003 TNN went another revamp and changed its name to Spike TV. Spike TV changed the programming line-up again to target a younger audience. The channel focused more on the action genre, until 2010 when it changed its line-up yet again.

This time Spike TV changed programming direction towards reality shows like HGTV. There was a growing demand at the time, and Spike took the opportunity to widen its viewership.

Finally, in 2018 Spike TV launched as the Paramount Network that we know and love today. It has since relocated its offices to Paramount Pictures studio in Los Angeles, California.
