    Ah, Duckman. That show was so awesome.

    And I personally don't like Psych or Monk (no offense, I just think they are boring.)

        And you are going to write an article on this? Automatic thumbs down. We don't need anymore "TV sucks now" articles. Stop whining and get over it. Things change all the time.


        actually I havent seen one of those in awhile

            Boy Gusto came back and you still get angry over someone's opinion.

                  they should bring back duckman, although it is finally on DVD, they should show reruns just for the hell of it.

                    What I miss mostly about the old USA Network was the USA Cartoon Express, The Facts of Life, Just The Ten Of Us, and oh yeah... In A Minute. Remember that one?

                      I live in the UK, so i can watch Nickelodeon UK/Nick Jr. UK. Nick Jr. UK shows all the good Nick Jr. shows... You probably want to move to a PBS station if you liked PBS in the back days to watch IF it has OLDER prints.

                            I'll always remember USA for having memorable game show lineups (before 1995, that is) such as this one from Jun-Dec 1993 (all times are Eastern, BTW):

                            1:00 PM - Talkabout
                            1:30 PM - Sale of the Century
                            2:00 PM - Joker's Wild (Finn)
                            2:30 PM - Tic Tac Dough (Wayne)
                            3:00 PM - Press Your Luck
                            3:30 PM - Scrabble (80s)
                            4:00 PM - $25,000 Pyramid (80s)
                            4:30 PM - $100,000 Pyramid (80s)

                            Also, I just found some "Up All Night" clips on YouTube with Rhonda Shear hosting recently, and they were fun to watch as well.

                              Although I miss their programming of the 80s and 90s, their cartoons and their movies (TV movies, thank you very much), I still like it. I adore their weekly SVU and CI marathons and it has/had some of the best shows born from the channel (Burn Notice, Dead Zone, Monk, Silk Stalkings, etc., expect for In Plain Sight, what excrement. I wish they'd just cancel it already.)

                                I liked it a lot better when they had the old USA flag logo. And I remember watching Strip Poker on there haha!

                                  I second. Just because this site is dedicated to the wonderful things in that past that several items are entirely gone, this does not mean you can rant on something new and ahead of the time we where in. I mean it just derails the site's potential meaning.


                                  Third...I know I bitch about TV of Today, but we can always watch another station. I like that station called MeTV and who knows...maybe there'll be a comeback of this.

                                  Also...what they played on USA first wasn't by Universal so contracts expire and need to be resigned.

                                  And with the internet, we can request a TV Show like "Family Matters". Any more "TV Sucks Today" articles, and were better-off having a full thread about it!

                                    The biggest thing I miss about USA Network (and early cable networks in general) was all the obscure, low-budget, off-beat stuff they would play as others have pointed out. Also USA Up All Night.

                                    My favorite thing about USA Network in the 1980s and early 1990s though, were those horror shorts they used to air when shows or special events would end before the top of the hour and there would be some time to fill before the next show started. There were a bunch of creepy ones, I particularly remember "The Contraption" (where a man is building something, but you can't quite figure out what it is, then he suddenly puts his head down on it, releases a lever and it kills him, and the camera pans back to reveal it's a giant mousetrap) and "The Dummy" (which must have been the inspiration for the movie "Child's Play". There was a nifty little student film too, where a man gets a typed letter to come to a job interview, only to find out that the typewriter (and some film stock) is trying to kill him and after it does, it types a letter to invite the next job candidate.

                                      Not everything sucks nowadays.

                                      I wish we had The Hub because of shows like My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.

                                        I was way way too young to remember the ''golden years'' of the USA Network(Cartoons on USA?)but,I do remember it back in the 2000s. It had some decent movies.
