As I recall, TWC went off the air altogether at night. And keep in mind, we're talking way back in the 80's, before just about all of you were even a dream. Back then TWC was NOT a 24-hour channel, if my memory serves me right. I seem to remember seeing other programming on TWC at night, but I wasn't sure. So i was trying to find verification of that.

To answer the original question, TWC was always a 24 hour network. Some cable systems would use split channels, where TWC would only air for part of the day, then another channel would be shown the rest of the day. This probably happened with cable systems where they were airing more channels than they had room for.

That may be true.  I remember my local cable company sometimes inserting their own shows and commercials on some channels back in the early 90s.  Had a very crappy cable company back then.  They would pop commercials sometimes right in the middle of programs.  You could tell it was their commercials or shows due to the crappy camera work and sound quality.
