Past television productions of CNET Networks
Hosted by Richard Hart and Gina St. John (later replaced by Daphne Brogdon), CNET Central was the flagship program of CNET TV. It aired from 1995 to 1999 on the Sci Fi Channel and USA Network in the United States. Individual segments were hosted by Desmond Crisis, Ryan Seacrest, and Hari Sreenivasan. Reviews of software and hardware were provided by John C. Dvorak in his "Buy It, Try It, Skip It" segments.  The show often ended with a segment called The Last Word featuring commentary from Dave Ross.
Hosted by Sofie Formica and Justin Gunn, The Web explored an emerging facet of computing: the World Wide Web. The show was an hour in length and included segments called The Hall of Fame and The Hall of Shame which showcased interesting and bizarre websites respectively. The show also interviewed famous tech celebrities such as Jerry Yang and David Filo, Todd Rundgren, and Thomas Dolby.
The New Edge
The New Edge was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, one of his first on-air jobs.  Unlike CNET Central and The Web, The New Edge was not nearly so focused on computing; it explored all aspects of science and technology, from Magnetic Resonance Imaging to gasoline powered blenders.
TV.COM was focused on the best the Internet had to offer. It was broadcast in syndication. Ron Reagan was a co-host.
Tech Briefs were 90 second tech inserts for local news media. They were hosted by Richard Hart. Later renamed Tech Reports.
Cool Tech showcased new gadgets. It was hosted by Desmond Crisis and Daphne Brogdon.
News.com was originally hosted by Richard Hart and Gina Smith (later replaced by Sydnie Kohara) with Hari Sreenivasan as senior correspondent.
