Default Is Cozi a retro network anymore?

Cozi recently acquired Will and Grace, which lasted as late as '06, is Cozi even a retro network or just a general entertainment network?

I think it's still a retro network. They have plenty of old shows on there like Murder, She Wrote, The Munsters, The A-Team, Miami Vice, Columbo etc.

Frasier is also on there and that lasted until 2004.

I don't think it can be classified with Antenna TV or MeTV anymore because of Frasier and Will & Grace, but, it does have a few classic shows... but not nearly as many as they did.

But it started in 93. In my opinion, it's retro if it started more than 15 years ago, and if the show was still running less than 15 years ago, it's still retro if more than half of the show's run was 15+ years ago. Meaning Frasier on Cozi and Becker on Antenna still count

Becker is too new for Antenna in my opinion.

Even later than that, as of last night Will and Grace became a current show again. It's the show that refuses to die.

Becker started in 1998, Will and Grace was just a year later in 1999. Neither of them are retro.

Cozi is kind of a hybrid station in my opinion. It shows "Will and Grace", "The Munsters" and even "Meet the Press"! It doesn't seem to have a specific identity.

The network is a subsidiary of NBC, so NBC will help it and vice versa. My guess is that NBC supplied Frasier to give them a solid anchor show, and that Will & Grace is there to promote the restart of the show.

It's 2017. These shows are all retro.

Laff had a "That's 70's Show" marathon last weekend and got record ratings. I'm afraid the trend towards "newer-retro" shows is just beginning.

Well, Laff is a general comedy network. Not retro.

They both started in 1998. In fact, W&G debuted a couple months prior.

But, that was almost 20 years ago. Putting it in perspective, when Nick at Nite came along, they showed stuff from the early-to-mid-60s, so about the same age as some shows airing, give or take a couple years.

I recall Antenna TV having a 90s block when they first started in 2011. They aired The Nanny, Married...with Children, and Mad About You. Newer shows airing on "classic" channels is nothing new.
