Switched at Birth (1991): The 1989 open matte CPE logo is shown in a purple hue and lacks a lot of ivory. This was seen on the two tape VHS release and was seen on the second tape; the first video had the regular hue. In the case of both versions, this appears almost open-matte.

Beakman's World (1992-1996): There is a yellow-orange CGI rocket which flies clockwise around the Torch Lady and makes its way to the center of the Torch Lady. Music-wise, the 1988 music for season 1 and the first part of season 2 was used, and then used the 1993 music for season 2 until season 4. Another variant of this logo had no music but kept the flying rocket and its sound. Another variant of this logo is where the sound of the rocket is different and still has the 1988 music playing on early season 1 episodes.

Married... With Children (The Movie Show) (1993): The Bundys are booing at the Columbia logo. Sadly is lost in recent years due to SPT plastering. The only place it can be found is on tape recordings of the original network broadcasts.

Designing Women (Shovel Off to Buffalo) (1993): The 1992 CPT logo starts off silent, then Elvis Presley (imitator) says "Thank you very much" before the logo fades out. It is retained on the Shout! Factory DVD releases of said show.

Seinfeld (The Betrayal) (1997): The Columbia TriStar Television Distribution logo plays backwards, tying in with the episode's plot and delivery, with the music playing forwards. Confirmed to have appeared on an Australian airing and possibly appeared on other international airings.

Screen Gems Network (1999-2002): An hour block program by Columbia TriStar Television Distribution. It features the 1992 Columbia Pictures logo animating like the 1993 theatrical logo, but in a faster pace. The text "SCREEN GEMS" circles itself from the left side of the Torch Lady to the middle and the word "NETWORK" fades in underneath the word "SCREEN GEMS" all in gold lettering. It's a throwback to the 1960 Screen Gems logo.
