the "you want next you got next" guy stepping out into the elaborate stage show is a perfect metaphor for a network trying to be different and then falling over itself because of it.

UPN: the douche in a golf shirt and jacket who interrupts perfectly good television with his bullshit attitude

Chuck D called it the "United Plantation of Niggers."

Fake rock music defeats fake opera.

Where's the Saturday Morning promo? Those shows were oop-iiiiiiiiin!
Caminante Nocturno - 2009-08-31
God damn it, I'd forgotten about that!

Also, they were SUNDAY morning cartoons, because UPN knew they didn't have a chance in Hell to compete on Saturdays.

Holy shit, that just totally ROCKED the 1780'S. THIS ISN'T YOUR GREAT-GREAT-GREAT-GREAT GRANDPA'S TV NETWORK! Because he didn't have one.

So fuck the entire cop show genre, it's time for something new! Like...a fourth Star Trek show!

The only show recognized was the horrible Star Trek series.

I remember when UPN first launched and they had so much promise with interesting shows like Nowhere Man, and that quickly gave way to a bunch of shitty sitcoms.

The WB and UPN were pretty much bastions of failure. Asides from a hit here and there most of their shows were stuff that sucked even compared to the lesser offerings of the Big Four networks: two-seasons-and-gone bottom-feeding sitcoms, six episode wonders and blink-and-you-missed-'em ill-concieved disasters.

I watch wrestling, so the only show from UPN I remember is Shasta McNasty, and it was brutally awful.

They gave Sir Mix-A-Lot a television show? Fucking seriously?
BHWW - 2009-08-31
Yes. it was "The Watcher" and it was like Tales from the Crypt or The Twilight Zone, except with Sir Mix-a-lot instead of the Cryptkeepr or Rod Serling, and tales of stuff happening in Vegas. OK, there's a Wikipedia entry (surprise):

"In Season 1, Episode 3, Coolio guest starred as himself, and met a young male Amish flautist who was bemused by his tyrannical father's insistence that he give up music for more heavenly pursuits. Undaunted by the young boy's mis-parenting, Coolio nurtures the boy's gift for music. They danced and they rapped, they rapped and they danced. The mix of traditional Amish flute melodies and Coolio's brand of post-modern rapping fused to create a unique experience. The show's post-production was run by Fredrick Lyle, the music supervisor on Universal TV's Miami Vice."

Great, now I have to see if it's on Netflix.

How could that show not be Earth's Greatest Treasure?
