The number of times CBS has changed their theme is insane. NBC has had the same theme since 1986, with slight variations.

ABC more or less used the same from 1978/9 until the mid-2000s.

Network news certainly has a rich history. Back in those early days when these special reports came on you know it was serious. Nowadays it's just sensationalized and overused and as a result it lost it's impact.

Viewers of The Price is Right know the feeling, as 95% of CBS's "special reports" break into TPIR, regardless of how newsworthy it is. (A couple of days ago it broke in to announce Bernie Sanders leaving the race -- news that's better left until 12 Noon or the evening.)
