A very brief clip used by The Nashville Network every night at 3 AM Eastern time to end its regular programming and to kick off a six-hour marathon of informercials.
Launched in March 1983, TNN was cable TV's home for anything related to Nashville's most famous product, namely country music. For years, Nashville's Saturday night country music extravaganza, the Grand Ole Opry, had thirty minutes of it telecast live on TNN. TNN also carried many shows pertaining to stock-car racing, hunting, fishing and "how-to". In September 2000 the channel became The NATIONAL Network and discarded its country-oriented programming in favor of various off-network reruns. In 2003 it became the Spike network, with programming geared toward young adult males. Spike underwent several shifts in programming format up untli January 18, 2018, when it was relaunched as Paramount Network, aiming to align it with its namesake studio (which previously lent its name to the now-defunct broadcast television network UPN). Paramount Network has been positioned as a general "flagship" outlet for original scripted series, and as a competitor to other "premium" basic cable networks such as AMC, FX and TNT.
