CBS owns and operates a CBS station. Though UPN is owned by CBS, it's totally a different network. And even so, it's best to leave as is since in September, it really won't matter. CW will change the way people think about O&amp;O to KMAX regardless, since CBS will only hold 50 percent of the CW share (the other 50 falling into the lap of Warner Bros.)<br> + * From a branding and organizational perspective, that makes sense. I've seen some articles in ''Variety'' and ''Broadcasting &amp; Cable'', however, that take a different view, which I follow. If a local television station's parent company owns at least a 20% share in said station's affiliated network, said station was called a network O&amp;O. By that logic, KMAX is a UPN O&amp;O. (Begin the possibly annoying minute details part). The classic examples are KTLA in Los Angeles, WGN in Chicago, and WPIX in New York City. All are owned by Tribune Broadcasting and are currently WB affiliates. Although Tribune owns only a minority stake in The WB, they were all frequently referred to as WB O&amp;O's. The [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Owned_and_operated_station Wikipedia article] states that a CBS-owned CW affiliate (e.g. KMAX, KBCW-FKA-KBHK in San Francisco, and WPSG Philadelphia) could be referred to as a "CW O&amp;O". My Network TV will make sure this fun argument goes on, since that network will be owned by Fox, and Fox happens to own KCOP in Los Angeles, WPWR in Chicago, and WWOR in New York City--all My Network affils. (Always those three cities--what gives?) How much time do you give the CW and My Network TV to live?<br> + * KMAX "is" a UPN O&amp;O.
