1994–95 United States network television schedule

The 1994–95 network television schedule for the six major English-language commercial broadcast networks in the United States covers prime time hours from September 1994 to August 1995. All times are Eastern and Pacific, with certain exceptions, such as Monday Night Football. This was the first season to feature the United Paramount Network and The WB Television Network, as both launched in January 1995. Both networks would ultimately shutdown and form The CW in September 2006

New series highlighted in bold.

Each of the 30 highest-rated shows is listed with its rank and rating in parenthesis (#rank / rating), as determined by Nielsen Media Research.[1]

     Yellow indicates the programs in the top 10 for the season.
     Cyan indicates the programs in the top 20 for the season.
     Magenta indicates the programs in the top 30 for the season.

PBS is not included; member stations have local flexibility over most of their schedules and broadcast times for network shows may vary.
