when in television, a show is sold to independant television stations, varying from city to city. Either that, or when a show can be seen on one network in one city, but another network in another city.
Family Feud used to be on WCAU-TV (CBS10, before 1995, when CBS and NBC switched from WCAU now nbc10 and KYW now cbs3), then when it went syndicated in 1999, it was on then-independant WGTW-TV (Channel 48), and now it is on WFMZ-TV (Channel 69).

Millioniare (Philbin) used to be on WPVI-TV (ABC6); now, Millionaire (Viera) used to be on KYW-TV (CBS3), now it's back on WPVI-TV. However, in Chicago, it's probably on their NBC station or something.

A mid-90ies action-strategy game (PC/Amiga) taking place in a dystopia and still kicking some major ass.

From the Home of the Underdogs : "Syndicate is an outstanding, incredibly atmospheric action-strategy game by Bullfrog, one of the best of its kind. The game is set in a bleak future where "Syndicates" control the world. You're a young executive in a small European based syndicate, you must perform a series of tasks to subdue the major population centres one by one until you have driven the forces of the rival corporations out of their final strongholds."
