Turner Network Television
TNT was originally launched on October 3, 1988 as Turner Network Television.
In 1995, Turner Network Television dropped its full name and went on simply by TNT. This logo's design usage was coincidental with the launch of WCW Monday Nitro, and dropped following the shutdown of World Championship Wrestling (WCW).
On June 12, 2001, the same year that the channel's parent company Time Warner was purchased by America Online, TNT underwent an extensive rebrand, a repositioning of the network that Bradley Siegel, then-president of Turner Entertainment Networks, explained had emerged through extensive focus group research with frequent TNT viewers.
The rebrand saw the introduction of a new logo designed by Trollbäck & Company and the new slogan "We Know Drama", which emphasized the channel's new focus on dramatic programming, including sports and off-network syndicated dramas. In 2012, the channel was given the new slogan "Drama. Period.", with the logo serving as the period in the sentence. On May 14, 2014, the slogan was changed to "Boom", concurrent with the adoption of the newer slogan "TNT Drama".
In January 2016, TNT began slowly phasing in a new logo on social media and in promos. This logo is based off the previous logos, except the logo is inverted rather than outlined, and the letters are fused together. It was officially introduced on January 30, during the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
