Sorry, Buffy fans, it's not what you think. From IMDB StudioBriefing: "TNN, once called The Nashville Network, then The National Network, is being renamed Spike TV after June 16. Network President Albie Hecht said that the intention was to underline the channel's predominantly male-oriented programming." I suppose it was inevitable, given Wifetime, er, I mean, Lifetime's success. TNN also owns the exclusive rerun rights to Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, but they acquired those rights before deciding to become The Man Showcase, so I can't really insinuate that they're implying something about Trek fans.
