    I was wondering if anyone knew of a website or resource that had an archive of broadcast schedules for previous years. For example, when The WB or UPN first launched in 1995, what was their lineup of programming? I just figured it would be an interesting comparision to look at. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    UPN I know had Platypus Man, Homeboys from Outer Space and a ton of other shows they cancelled

    WB started with that married with children clone with the puppet(th one with that girl they tried to make a star, Nikki Cox), Kirk- with Kirk Cameron as a comic artist.

    Oh, in their second season they added a little show called "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" [​IMG]

    You'll have to use the IMDB to look up the shows to see what the content was, but WB basically had 9 sitcoms and UPN had 6 hourlong shows in the cop and sci-fi genres.

    The guide doesn't list the spring shows from 1995, though. The description for Playtpus Man does show it airing Jan - July of 1995.
