In a strange aside, they also own (and hold) the 1987-88 version of ''{{Lingo}}''. The show was present in a 2005 "Viewers' Vote" on their website, but nothing ever came of it. A shame, too, since that version is relatively scarce and it'd bring in eyeballs.

The network changed its name to "i" (for "independent") in 2005, and then to "ION" in 2007. In the "i" era its scheduled consisted mainly of {{infomercial}}s (an industry RunningGag was that the "i" name stood for "infomercial"), though currently the infomercial block, which formerly made up 2/3 of Ion's broadcast day, is down now to 6-8 hours per day, par for the course with many cable networks. The rest of the schedule is made up of movies, overnight and Sunday morning religious programming, and reruns of various shows, which change frequently. As of 2013, they seem to fixate on ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'', ''{{Psych}}'' and ''Series/CriminalMinds'', and added new episodes of ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' in a unique deal with Creator/{{CBS}} to air it outside the summer months. The content editing stopped in 2005 (except for certain movies which have to meet [[MediaWatchdog FCC]] regulations; usually the default 'TV cut' is now taken) when Paxson left the network; it might shock viewers who remember the old PAX to see ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' on a network that was formerly home to ''Promised Land'' and ''Hope Island''. They managed to sign a deal with the Arena Football League to air games starting in March 2012, and in October 2012 began airing the newest go-around of Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s C-level program, ''{{WWE Main Event}}''.
