Showtime 1976


Logopedia InfoWhite SVG NEEDED

This logo was commonly used in on-air promos and IDs alongside a circle that contained a television screen, a symbol confirmed to be copied from the Brazilian TV Globo, although its designer (Hans Donner) and the creator of Showtime's symbol reached an agreement for the usage for their logo during a dinner meeting.




The circle with a TV screen featured in this logo was carried over from the logo used prior to this. The italic Franklin Gothic-type "Showtime" text features the "W" and "T" connected to one another. This logo was used in tandem with the previous one until it became the sole logo in 1985.

Showtime revived the logo in 2018 for exclusive use in promotional ads for the network's 1980s-set period comedy series Black Monday.[1]


Showtime 1990

The circle with a TV screen, used in the first two Showtime logos from 1980 to 1990, was dropped in this revision of the prior logo, leaving only the italic Showtime text in Franklin Gothic font.
