The Downfall of UPN – and Viacom

Movie  

Report
For over a decade, the big 4 TV networks had a new competitor, launched by Paramount, called the United Paramount Network. After Fox showed the TV world that there was room for one more network, Paramount was determined to make their mark. However, if you check your channel guide today, the letters UPN are nowhere to be found. From passing on the biggest show in television and broadcasting a failed football league to the corporate mess at the very top of parent company Viacom that sealed UPN's fate, we explore all of the factors that led to the demise of the network that, at one point, seemed destined to change the television landscape.
