ABC is an American television network, which purportedly stands for American Broadcasting Corporation. It was originally carved out from a rump of NBC in a late 1940's push for "media diversity." It remained the theoretical third network with mostly losing shows until it was bought by Disney. Because of its current ownership, ABC is anything but American.
