Did the U.S. need six national private broadcast networks? Did it need six national broadcast children's blocks? Couple this with the rise of cable as well as home video and you have plenty of competition.

I shortly after this thread started, I came across this video.
"Unlike other failures of the time, like Fox Kids [...]"

I don't think so.

  • UPN. Just... UPN.
  • They didn't wanna compete with Nickelodeon.
  • They already HAD Nickelodeon and yet did nothing to synergize.
  • Sunday mornings.
I agree with UPN because it was UPN.
The rest though, they did talk with Nickelodeon later, nothing came from that, Sunday Mornings (also weekdays) isn't a bad thing per say, because everyone else is on Saturday, go where there's less competition. Also, some UPN stations aired Fox Kids , so they either cut off UPN Kids on weekdays or had that programming in the mornings, and they would have cut off a Saturday UPN kids for FOX kids.
