1st Logo
Lions Gate Television (2005)<embed height="177" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="201" wmode="transparent"/>

Nicknames: "Shining Lion", "Lion Constellation"

Logo: On a black background, we see the lion from the first logo. Below it is LIONS GATE. Under it is "TELEVISION", in what appears to be stretched-out Myriad. The lion flashes and shines.

Variant: On Shutter Speed, a byline for Mandalay Action & Sports Entertainment appears below. The logo is also smaller.

FX/SFX: The flashing of the constellation.

Music/Sounds: Either a synth theme with crashing cymbals to hit the last note, or the first part of the Lions Gate Home Entertainment theme; otherwise, the end theme of the show.

Availability: Fairly common. Seen on The Dead Zone on Cloo and the first season of Weeds.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

Nicknames: "The Green Lion", "Lion Constellation II"

Logo: On a black background, we see the constellation of the lion from the Lions Gate Films logo in green with the stars in yellow.
Lions Gate Entertainment: 2002-2005 On the left of the lion says "LIONS GATE" in Bernhard Modern and underneath in green says "ENTERTAINMENT" in a serif font.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Just the end title-theme from any show or the generic network theme.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Unsolved History. Also affixed to the end of documentaries made by Termite Art Productions (except syndicated reruns of Ripley's Believe it or Not!), Busted on the Job and it's sequels.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo

Nicknames: "The Lions Gate Sky", "Lionsgate Hero"

Logo: It's the 2nd half of the 5th Lionsgate Films logo.

Later Variant: In 2010, a registered trademark symbol was added.
Lions Gate-2006

FX/SFX: Just the camera zooming back from the logo.

Music/Sounds: Mostly it's the end-title theme from any show or silent. As of late 2010,
it's a little sped-up version of the last notes of the theatrical logo.

Availability: Common. Seen on shows from the ear such as
Boss, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Mad Men, Anger Management, Orange is the New Black, and reruns of the final season of The Dead Zone.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo
(June 3, 2013- )

: "The Lions Gate Sky II", "Lionsgate Hero II"
Lionsgate (2013)
Logo: The last two seconds of the 2013 logo.

FX/SFX: Same as the theatrical logo.

Music/Sounds: The same two logo themes from the 3rd logo.

Availability: Common. Seen on later episodes of the Anger Management TV series starting on episode 21. It's also seen on season 2 of Nashville, the last two season 5 episodes of Nurse Jackie, the last three season 6 episodes of Mad Men, Graves, and Greenleaf on OWN.

Editor's Note: None.
