    I started watching Xena when it was on Oxygen about six years ago as I was only 9 when it ended. Iv'e been wondering what channel it originally air on, but all I can find is that it was syndicated on local stations. Does anyone remember what channel it air on and what time in LA?

    No idea, but back in the '90s it aired on Saturday afternoons with "Hercules" on WGN here in Chicago.

    In the UK most series aired on channel 5 but keeping up with just when it was going to be shown was very difficult. Sometimes there would be gaps of 18 months between series. Thank god for DVD's!

    In the mid 2000s it was still on both Logo and Oxygen. But ever since it seems like it just ended. I still hope they'd reair the show again. I mean WE or Lifetime could do better by picking up the rights to Xena.

    It aired in syndication, so it was different times and stations everywhere, due to the discretion of the local channel airing it.

    For me, it was Saturday nights. Hercules at 10:35 Central time and Xena at 11:35 Central. Those were very special for me. I'd look forward to it all week long. I miss syndicated shows that would play so late at night, it was like a secret; a secret portal to another world.

    It aired on syndication meaning that it didnt air on a specific network. The show was sent to local stations in every city and they chose the local network to air it on. It had to air on the same day everywhere but it aired at different times.


    So for example, in LA it aired on the WB but in New York it could have aired on UPN and in Chicago it could have aired on ABC.

    For me, it was the CBS station on Saturday nights. I really miss syndicated series.

    U.S.A orginally and Oxygen and Logo after the series ended.

    I caught it on USA or WB when it would air new episodes (I can't remember which one, I do remember always having to watch it when it would air, still didn't see every single episode until I rented it with netflix about 2, or 3 yrs ago)
