Yes, it's part of a whole reshuffling at Viacom where they will be focusing their attention on six prime networks, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., and Paramount while the other networks will be realigned to as the press release says reinforce the six flagship brands

The Reshuffling is beginning to take shape as Viacom has moved TV Land's upcoming shows, Alicia Silverstone's American Woman and the hourlong Heathers reboot to the new Paramount Network

Re: Name change for Spike TV


We're getting a better look at what the line-up will be

Leading things off will be the former TV Land pilots, the half-hour American Woman, starring Alicia Silverstone and inspired by Kyle Richards, and the hourlong Heathers reboot, featuring original star Shannen Doherty. Both were ordered by TV Land but moved to help launch the new Paramount Network. Joining them will be Waco, ordered by Spike, it will move forward on Paramount and centers on the Waco compound that the FBI Raided in the 90's. I Am Martin Luther King Jr. will be the latest in the I am series which has already included I Am Chris Farley, I Am JFK Jr. and I Am Heath Ledger.

Another TV Land Pilot, a remake of First Wives Club, has been picked up and will be redeveloped, the pilot failed to be ordered by TV Land

Ahead of their 3rd season premiere, Lip Sync Battle will return for their 4th season and will premiere in January 2018 with a special star-studded live episode. Other Spike Originals making the move include Ink Master, Bar Rescue, and Bellator MMA.
