    "Today the first network for men has a name and it's Spike TV."

    And I thought the name was ESPN. [​IMG]

    Ugh....how come I have a feeling Men TV will be as perceptive about men as a Jay Leno joke.

    "Don't you guys hate your wives? Stop nagging us already! And boy, don't you love that Pamela Anderson?"

    Ugh, again.

    Well, if it has a lot of Spike, I'd be interested. Buffy's ending, so James Marsters could host. Sadly, this probably isn't the case.

    Maybe if they get rid of that horrible black bar their ratings would increase. I don't watch the channel because of that reason.

    Can't say I know alot of guys with that name. Sounds like it's more of a dog-oriented network. And yes, very hard to watch the channel with the black bar. Can't think of anything I watch there other than WWE Raw.

    What Rob Gardiner said.

    When I read the release in post 1 I thought it was a joke at first.

    Didn't this start out as THE NASHVILLE NETWORK, (all country all the time)?

    Considering that the more female themed channel is Oxygen, I would think the male themed channel would be Methane.

    This IS a joke right? Spike? That is the most retarded name I have ever heard since PWC Consulting tried to change their name to Monday.
