Its secret weapon was "Turner Time", scheduling programs 5 minutes after the top of the (half) hour in order to make sure viewers would miss the beginnings of other channels' fare and thus be resigned to stay with TBS for another show. It would also get its own listings in TV Guide back when that was still a big thing, hence attracting more attention. Up until the 2004 format change, it was, befitting the genesis of the network, a grab bag of older movies, off-network reruns, Turner-owned cartoons from Creator/HannaBarbera, MGM and WB, the occasional Creator/{{CNN}}-produced news update in between programs, Atlanta sportscasts, and the ''National Geographic Explorer'' series. Starting in the mid-80s, some low-budget original sitcoms, game shows and movies like ''Series/{{Starcade}}'' began creeping their way in. Also during this time, the national feed carried one of the few American {{Teletext}} services, ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electra_(teletext) Electra]]'', which was a joint venture between TBS, Zenith Electronics (who made Teletext-capable TV sets) and Taft Broadcasting (who programmed the service).

* ''17 Update Early in the Morning''[[note]]essentially a predecessor to ''Series/TheDailyShow'' and its' ilk, with the concept being a straight-laced anchor- Bill Tush, a major personality in the early days of WTCG/WTBS- reading the news with a comedic bent; it wasn't intended to be funny at first (Turner only started a newscast per FCC regulations, and he decided to air it at around 3:00 AM), but one day [[ThrowItIn someone decided to hurl a paper airplane from off-screen and it was kept in]] and from that point on Tush, co-anchor Tina Seldin, and the off-screen crew decided to add more and more comedy, including such things as "Rex the Wonder Dog" (a dog dressed up in a suit and with an off-screen VO to make it seem like he was reading the news) and the "Unknown Newsman" (a takeoff on the [[Series/TheGongShow Unknown Comic]]), and the show became an early cable legend, especially after the station went to satellite transmission; it ended in 1979 because Turner was about to launch CNN and a thing like this would present credibility issues; Tush and Seldin also anchored straight-laced news capsules during the day[[/note]]
