If you're looking for fun, wholesome programming, the ABC Family Channel is probably right up your alley. Owned by ABC and the Walt Disney Company, most of its programs are geared towards viewers aged 15-30. Recently, they've heavily invested in original programs, specials and made-for-TV movies, most of which have been very positively received. Spun off from the Christain Broadcasting Network (CBN) in the early 1990s, they've stood for family values and mainstream fun since day one. It's been a successful recipe that won't be changing anytime soon.
