With the very simple slogan of "very funny," TBS is a network that has developed a class-clown image for itself in a very successful way over the course of the years. A range of movies, shows, comedy, and an online comedic community have helped raise the network's profile. With the number of channels available on satellite TV, TBS has made a name for itself by carefully selecting high quality comedic programming from yesterday, and placing it in the high-tech, online context of the world of today.
Viewers that tune in for the wide range of shows find some of the funniest programs of the several decades airing with regular episodes. Three big-time audience drawers are Family Guy, The Office, and Meet the Browns. Additional big-name prime-time programming includes Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, George Lopez, King of Queens, My Name is Earl, Seinfeld and Sex and the City. In addition to the old favorites, audiences enjoy original series like the aforementioned Meet the Browns, as well as My Boys, Tyler Perry's House of Payne, and the Very Funny Show. For those who have some free time during the day, TBS is known for its funny and entertaining daytime lineup, including yesterday's favorites like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Home Improvement, Just Shoot Me, Married With Children, Saved by the Bell, Steve Harvey, and Yes Dear. By selecting carefully the network manages some of the biggest names in sitcom satellite TV.
Another big draw on the TBS roster is its selection of fun an funny movies. With movie-shows, like Dinner and a Movie, Movie and a Makeover, and Movie Extra, fun extras are spliced into the movie to enhance and add to the audience's viewing experience. Audiences watch a meal or a makeover that generally follows a cutesy movie-related theme take place before their eyes. Around the holiday season, the network is known for its 24-hour straight airing of Holiday classic A Christmas Story, where audiences fall in love with Ralphie and his Red Ryder BB Gun plight year after year. The movie selection may not be the high definition blockbusters of tomorrow, but they are the heartwarming and comedic classics of yesterday and today.
As an added bonus, TBS has gone cyber with a fully interactive website, featuring videos, games, contests and more for its loyal viewing audience. Check out clips from interviews, shows, and behind-the-scenes action for all the popular TBS programs. Catch up on the current schedule on a daily or weekly basis on the online schedule, and make sure not to miss any favorites.
