I started thinking about how the networks initially promoted themselves. I was aware of The WB’s use of Michigan J. Frog as a mascot and its studio backlot theme but not as familiar with UPN’s early on-air promotion other than the original look of the UPN logo. So, I dug out DVDs of various premiere nights for both networks and starting tomorrow I’ll be posting a promo a day for a series premiere on either The WB or UPN.
Included will be promos for shows like Marker (UPN), Pig Sty (UPN), Muscle (The WB), and The Parent ‘Hood (The WB). Check back tomorrow around noon and every day for the next week to see promos for (mostly) forgotten TV shows from (potentially) forgotten networks.
