    1997 Dejaview or Special Channel Cable line up

    I just wonder what would they show for old sitcoms at night for a special tv channel
    like Dejaview if it was around I always wondered this but if anyone has classic line ups
    of what they showed for tv shows back then, it doesn't matter if it's 1997 but in that
    time frame because I remember the WB use to be good but I didn't own a Canadian
    specialty channel like Deja view but like I said just curious.

    I didn't understand your question... But here's a link that might help you out finding what used to air on US networks in 1997:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997%E2...ision_schedule
    There are links at the bottom of the page, you can go way back to 1946.

    I admire your optimist over Dejaview considering it's sole existence is to run a low amount of long-run series for cheap and huge profits.
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.

    Not that but
    Classic Cable line-ups to a certain thread on here is more like i'm thinking of
    but I'm talking about defunct sitcom specialty channels that were around back in the
    90's I know now that Dejaview lanched back in 2001 that I searched up on wikipedia
    so the channel wasn't around then.
