* ''Anime/SailorMoon'': Very similar scenario to ''Dragon Ball Z'', since the English dub (by Creator/DiC) was originally created for syndication, before finding fame through Toonami. Although unlike ''Dragon Ball Z'', the show didn't do very well in syndication, due to the terrible time slots it was given in most markets.

In the late 1960s and early '70s, networks controlled three and a half hours of prime time a night, typically 7:30 - 11:00pm. The FCC ruled that to promote local programming they needed to be forced to give up a half hour. Called Prime Time Access, this was intended to be a half hour between the news and network entertainment, filled with local info and public affair programming created by the local stations. Instead the local stations just purchased bigger quantities of first run syndicated versions of {{game show}}s and other programming. While some of these shows were highly praised (''Series/TheMuppetShow'' and ''Series/MutualOfOmahasWildKingdom'' for example), most critics of the day bemoaned them as increasing 'The Vast Wasteland'. The rule was repealed in 1996, but the affiliates have resisted in giving any time slots back.

By the late 1980s, network news had by and large been moved to the 6:30 PM timeslot, freeing up the 7:00 PM slot as an additional Prime Access slot. The rule was repealed in 1996, but the affiliates have resisted in giving any time slots back.
