The show's name is also used to refer to the Meltdown brand, in which IWE employees are assigned to work and perform on that program; the other program and brand currently being Fusion.. It is the only television broadcast for the Meltdown brand. The show originally debuted in the United States on the USA Network on January 11, 1993. It remained there until 2000, when Meltdown was moved to TNN, later known as Spike TV. In 2005, the show was moved back to the USA Network. Since its launch in 1993, Meltdown continues to air on Monday nights. Meltdown is generally seen as the company's flagship program due to its longer history, higher ratings, the fact its shows are live every week, and emphasis on pay-per-views. It is the longest running weekly episodic television show in US history.
