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[[note]]HilariousInHindsight now that ''Series/{{Conan}} is the only late-night talk show to ''not'' regularly air 5 minutes after the (half) hour[[/note]]. 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, Creator/{{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, movies, and game shows 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).

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). 1998 saw the removal of kids' programming, as sister station Creator/CartoonNetwork took over that demographic.
