Which show got you started on each network?

I was recalling the shows that initially caught my attention with some of the newest networks (such as FOX, UPN, and WB) during the first few years they were launched such as

FOX - Married with Children, The Tracy Ullman Show

WB - Dawson's Creek

UPN - (In retrospect, I'm a little ashamed to admit) Star Trek: Voyager

Anyway, it doesn't have to be limited to these networks and it could include some cable channels that you would have never paid attention to had it not been for a particular show.

Fox - I do not think there was "one" show that got my attention, but every once and a while theyll have something I put on my calendar to watch.

UPN - Star Trek: Voyager (hell it was their first show)

WB - BTVS, Angel, & Birds of Prey (all at different times, but thats it for that network)

FX - BTVS in syndication, The Shield, and Lucky

FOX - "Married with Children" & "21 Jump Street"

FX - "The Shield". I wanted my cable company to get FX so I could watch "Son of the Beach", and when they finally did get the network I watched that stupid show maybe three times before stopping.

Honk!

Sounds like Friday the 13th (a syndicated show).
