United Network


Comedy Central




This list does not list the numerous game shows in the mid-1980s that usually got late-night clearances (such as the 1985 run of The Nighttime Price Is Right) but were not expressly intended for late night audiences. Also not included are talk shows meant for daytime airing which air in late night slots in many markets due to either timeslot failure or a lack of a prime timeslot.




Westinghouse Broadcasting

Also known as Group W. Shows aired on Westinghouse Broadcasting owned and operated stations and syndicated to other markets.
