Do you know what these television network acronyms stand for?

Some of these networks have been around for decades and decades, but do you actually know what their acronyms mean?


You see them all the time. From social media promotions, to commercials, or even in the bottom corner of your screen while you watch your favorite show. Television networks started with the big three and have grown exponentially since TV's golden age. 

ABC, NBC and CBS were the homes to several, now-classic, television series. Other networks (like us here at MeTV!) have of course joined the party in the decades since.
