First week of Paramount Network in the new format:
Spartacus: Blood and Sand
Car Crash TV
Criminals: Caught on Camera
Can't Pay? We'll Take it Away!
Winter Road Rescue
World's Deadliest Weather
World's Toughest Prisons
It's very clearly just 5Spike under a new name.
I don't have anything against the content, as 5Spike has been very successful at appealing to the old Bravo demographic, and Spike is a good brand for that, but there's no way that these shows should be associated with the Paramount brand in the UK.
Yeah, 5Star 2 would be a more appropriate name. Things like Arrow and Suits, fair enough, they're recent US dramas. A-Team, Airwolf, Knight Rider, old classics, also fine. But stuff like Police Interceptors, Traffic Cops, and Can't Pay should only be on 5 branded channels.
