2006 United States Broadcast TV Realignment

Between winter-fall 2006, the United States broadcast television industry was realigned. In September 2006, the country's two "second-tier" television networks, UPN and The WB Television Network, both shut down on September 15 and 17 respectively, and their operations were transferred to a new joint-venture "fifth" network, The CW Television Network. Meanwhile, the Fox Television Stations Group (which owned several UPN stations in large cities blocked from affiliating with The CW) signed up with MyNetworkTV, a new network owned by its parent company.
