Logo descriptions and captures by Shadeed A. Kelly, Hoa, and EnormousRat Video capture courtesy of Eric S.

1st Logo

Nicknames: "Shining Lion", "Lion Constellation"

Logo: On a black background, we see the lion from the first logo. Below it is LIONS GATE. Under it is "TELEVISION", in what appears to be stretched-out Myriad. The lion flashes and shines.

FX/SFX: The flashing of the constellation.

Cheesy Factor: The flashing seems sped-up.

Music/Sounds: Either a synth theme with crashing cymbals to hit the last note, or the first part of the Lions Gate Home Entertainment theme; otherwise, the end theme of the show.

Availability: Fairly common. It's currently seen on reruns of The Dead Zone on Cloo, and the first season of Weeds on DVD.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo

Nicknames: "The Green Lion", "Lion Constellation II"

Logo: On a black background, we see the constellation of the lion from the Lions Gate Films logo in green with the stars in yellow.Lions Gate Entertainment: 2002-2005 On the left of the lion says "LIONS GATE" in Bernhard Modern and underneath in green says "ENTERTAINMENT" in a serif font.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Just the end title-theme from any show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Unsolved History occasionally on Military Channel. Also affixed to the end of documentaries made by Termite Art Productions (except syndicated reruns of Ripley's Believe it or Not!), such as the now-defunct Fox Reality reruns of Busted on the Job and it's sequels.

Scare Factor: None.

3rd Logo

Nicknames: "The Lionsgate Sky", "Lionsgate Hero"

Logo: It's the 2nd half of the 5th Lionsgate Films logo.

Later Variant: In 2010, the Registered trademark symbol "®" was added.

Variant: The opening of movies they distributed have the theatrical Logo at the beginning.

FX/SFX: Just the camera zooming back from the logo.

Music/Sounds: Mostly it's the end-title theme from any show or silent. As of late 2010, it's a little sped-up version of the last notes of the theatrical logo.

Availability: Common. It's currently seen on Boss on Starz, Weeds on DVD, Nurse Jackie on Showtime, Mad Men on AMC, Anger Management on FX, Orange is the New Black on Netflix, and reruns of the final season of The Dead Zone on Cloo. The opening version has also appeared on TV airings of Spookley, The Square Pumpkin until 2016, but the recent airings since 2017 used the 4:3 HD version from the recent Cinedigm Blu-Ray release.

Scare Factor: None.

Logo: The last two seconds of the 2013 logo.

Availability: Common. Seen on later episodes of the Anger Management TV series starting on episode 21. It's also seen on season 2 of Nashville on ABC, the last two season 5 episodes of Nurse Jackie on Showtime, and the last three season 6 episodes of Mad Men on AMC.
