By the mid-90s, original programming had increased, with TV movies and new Hanna-Barbera output (specifically Ted Turner's own ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' (though the first couple of seasons were produced by DiC), as well as ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'' and ''WesternAnimation/TwoStupidDogs'') constituting the majority of the new stuff, alongside sportscasts, movie wraparounds (some of which lasted until 2011), and WCW wrestling (see below).

This UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}-based cable channel began as WTCG, (for '''T'''urner '''C'''ommunications '''G'''roup), an independent station owned by Ted Turner. It then changed its call sign to WTBS (for '''T'''urner '''B'''roadcasting '''S'''ystem) as its U.S. cable coverage increased, mainly due to satellite coverage (hence why it used to be called ''TBS Superstation'', as a superstation was a term for a broadcast TV station carried in many markets; from the late 90s until the 2004 format change, it was branded mainly as "the Superstation"). Now known as TBS, and separate from the Atlanta station [[note]]now known as WPCH, "Peachtree TV", which split in 2007 to allow TBS to carry Major League Baseball games involving teams other than the Braves. TBS doesn't even run it anymore, having leased its operations to Atlanta's Creator/{{CBS}} station WGCL 46[[/note]] it and the other Turner properties currently belong to Time Warner (also the owner of Creator/WarnerBros).

In June 2004, in response to sibling TNT's post-2001 focus on dramatic programming (and possibly Time Warner's divestiture of its stake in Creator/ComedyCentral to Viacom the previous year), it decided to situate itself into the genre of comedy, after years of not having a genre (the comedy focus is a little looser than TNT's on drama, though, as evidenced by the movies it tends to run). To that end, on April 12, 2010, Creator/ConanOBrien announced a five-year deal with TBS to do an [[Series/{{Conan}} 11 PM talk show]].
