Editions by Shadeed A. Kelly and StephenCezar15

Background: Relativity Television was founded in 2008 as RelativityREAL to develop unscripted television series and has since expanded to scripted programming, hence the name change. In 2015, Relativity Media filled for bankruptcy, and Relativity Television was sold to creditors led by Anchorage Capital. who changed the name to Critical Content.

1st Logo
(August 6, 2009-May 23, 2013)

Relativity Real (2012)
Logo: Looks just like the movie logo at the time, except the logo is on a black background, and the star field is almost empty, as there are just a few stars and no planets (this variant was used for Relativity Media on Catfish: The Movie). Also, there is no light beam coming out of the galaxy center, and there are fewer light streaks next to it. The logo just zooms out a little and the words just fade in, with "R E L A T I V I T Y" in the same font as the movie logo, and "R E A L" in a different, uglier font.

Variant: On The American Bible Challenge, the logo appears in-credit.

FX/SFX: The fading in of the words.

Music/Sounds: The last half of the 2009 Relativity Media theme.

Availability: Seen on shows like Catfish: The TV Series, the first two seasons of The American Bible Challenge, and Police Women.

Editor's Note:This logo has barely any animation at all, and the font for "REAL" is off model and ugly; it sticks out like a sore thumb.

2nd Logo
(June 25, 2013-July 20, 2014)

Relativity Television (2013)
Logo: It's just Relativity Television's print logo on a black background. There is no animation at all.

FX/SFX: Nothing, it's still.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.

Availability: Still intact on shows made during this period.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo
(July 27, 2014-December 27, 2015)

Logo: On a space BG, we see a blue ring orbiting around next to the words "RELATIVITY". The center of the "A" flashes and "T E L E V I S I O N" flashes in below.

Variant: A variant exists where the word "LIFESTYLE" appears above "TELEVISION". This can be seen on Guy's Grocery Games and Burgers, Brew, and 'Que, both on Food Network.

FX/SFX: The ring drawing, the words flashing and appearing.

Music/Sounds: A whoosh and a synth note.

Availability: Seen on The American Bible Challenge among other series.

Editor's Note: None.

4th logo
(September 22, 2015-April 26, 2016)

Logo: The silver Relativity Television logo appears from the flash which centers on the "A" letter. The background is now black, unlike the previous logo.

FX/SFX: The shine and logo revealing.

Music/Sounds: Same as the third logo. CBS airings of Limitless used a generic theme.

Availability: Seen on Limitless, Young & Hungry, The Great Food Truck Race and other shows of the time.

Editor's Note: None.
