This is BS i hate that TheWB is leaving it had awsome shows, and if UPN and The WB weren't merging there would be alot of good shows on it.. Such as EVERWOOD... WTF WERE THEY THINKING TO CANCELE EVERWOOD FOR 7TH HEAVEN ARE THEY STUPID?

WTF!!! I HATE UPN that network has BAD shows stupid CW is throwing Wrestling on Friday..... umm no how about putting that on ESPN or Saturday's at 10 or 11pm and make some darn room for good shows like EVERWOOD

But now UPN doesn't have bad shows.... The CW does....

And What Does CW stand for anyway?!

I looked on the site but they didnt say... is it Channels Worthless??!!?

CBS and TimeWarner...the owners of the networks. Plus, they put Wrestling in the Friday Night Death Slot, that's basically the worst place for a tv show. I liked how the WB is acknowledging their farewell. My upn isn't doing anything special, but my wb is showing the pilots for Buffy (whoo), Dawson (hmm..okay), Smallville (err...k), and probably some more. Everwood would've made it to the CW if they had stronger ratings, compared to 7th Heaven. It's just a show though. No need to get upset over something so meaningless.

Who cares? Other than Smallville, who has really watched The WB in the past 2-3 years?

You got that right. After they stopped airing reruns of The Fresh Prince, I stopped watching it except for Smallville.

...you talking about the WB or UPN? Because for me, UPN aired reruns of "The Fresh Prince" a long time ago.

Plus, look at the bright side. With the CW, all of the least-watched programs are now handily assembled in one convenient package.

I also watch Supernatural on TheWB and Veronica Mars on UPN. Glad to have them together now.
The reason that UPN probably didn't have a farewell night is because all of their "hits" happened in recent years. The WB on the other hand has been a crap network lately. The only reason they had any reason to celebrate was over their shows that premiered in the 90's. Those are the shows they aired the pilots for yesterday. (Buffy- 97, Angel- 99, Felicty-98, Dawsons- 9
What was UPN supposed to do, celebrate Shasta McNasty?

Why would anybody want to celebrate those shows?

It's true that currently UPN has more hits than The WB, and have beat them in the ratings for the past 2 years. But all of their hits that will be remembered years from now are still "fresh" so there's no need to celebrate them, since they are going to The CW. The WB on the other hand was a network that hit its peak in the late 90's. Apparantly they know this, and are trying to pay tribute to the shows they had on during that era. UPN was a pile of garbage back in the 90's.

I can tell you why UPN didn't do a farewell night.......
Aside from Star Trek, what UPN series is on DVD? I don't count Roswell or Buffy since they were on both networks. Also with the bitter taste Enterprise left in Trek fans, why air them? Unless you were going to tell everyone what the new movie was about.

You couldn't do the black shows since many of them ended with clifhangers and bitter taste in everyone's mouth. I wouldn't air Moesha's pilot since a cast member is dead.

UPN won the war with the WB on terms of comedies. They failed with dramas since none were really given a chance to grow (Kevin HIl, Jake 2.0).
The WB lost stream when they turned thier back on blacks, not in term of black shows, but when you go from having blacks on most of your shows (Charmed, Felicity, Angel, Smallville, Steve Harvey, Jamie Foxx as main cast members) in 2001 to one (Wesley Jonathan) in 2006. People will notice and the ratings proved it as if the show wasn't Everwood, Smallville, Supernatural, 7th Heaven, Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill (at times) or Reba, it got smoked by UPN.

I never really watched the WB at all. The channel change isn't really big for me. I'll still DVR wrestling on Friday nights. I don't get it. Why would they put wrestling on during a time where most people are not home? Tons of people like wrestling, I agree it should go on ESPN. Only they like to show REAL sports, not sports entertainment. Even though wrestlers go through a hell of a lot more than other athletes. They put more on the line and there is no real off season, unless you are a wrestler that doesnt get much air time. As for the CW, thank you whoever cleared up what that stood for. I was wondering...for like a second. The only real show that I ever watched on the WB was Pokemon, and that was back in the day. You know, where everyone and their grandma watched that show! Now....those people need to stop.

The WB has turned into a joke. I treat those channels like those religious and home shopping channels when I'm surfing: I just go right past, not even looking. Come to think of it, the WB has always had rediculous shows (Buffy, Angel, 7th Heaven). I mean rediculous unless you're a 13 year old girl. As for wrestling, it's not a sport, it's a physical soap opera.
