Dude, it's only a TV channel. Best to enjoy what they do have rather than get in a blind rage about them "destroying" it (especially when there's no evidence of them treating Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, or Steven Universe in any bad way; it'd be one thing if they were action shows given CN's recent patterns, but they're heavily promoted comedies that CN has shown no signs of suddenly canceling after less than a year).Originally Posted by The ShopSoldier
Tropes that are ruining Western/European Animation (and any animes involving school):
And there's no evidence of anything getting in the way. Steven Universe I know has a season 2 order, and CN's ridiculously in love with Uncle Grandpa, giving him the sign on/sign off bumps AND giving characters their own Friday block.Originally Posted by The ShopSoldier
The CN execs aren't evil people who hate good. They have an action plan too reliant on sexist toy industry issues but they've been nothing but supportive of their big comedies.
Next time you post, try to look at the reality as opposed to blind rage.
I hope they'll announce a Complete 10th Anniversary DVD set for Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends at the upfront.
Happy 15th, Family Guy
What I think is a given:
New Season of Adventure Time
New Season of Regular Show
New Season of Steven Universe
New Season of Uncle Grandpa
What I'd like (on top of that):
New Info on Tom and Jerry
New info on I Heart Tuesdays (or was is Thursdays?)
New info on the upcoming changes at Boomerang
New branding (CN 20th Anniversary style)
MORE ACTION! (real action, not another TTGO!)
EDIT: Oh... and PLEASE get rid of Johnny Test!

I'm going to take some wild guesses for this year's Upfront..
* Of course, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Uncle Grandpa, and Steven Universe will be getting new seasons.. alongside with a few mentions like "The Amazing World of Gumball" returning with a third season, or Teen Titans Go with a second season.
* Another new LEGO series in the works, and of course to replace Ninjago: Rebooted once it's finished (knowing they could likely pull this).
* Sonic Boom, The Tom & Jerry Show, I Heart Tuesdays, and Clarence to get mentioned on the Upfront, and having their respective release for some shows.. while others are unknown.
* around 2-3 new Cartoon Network originals getting the greenlight or pitched, likely one show from a previous pilot to get a greenlight.
* Boomerang getting some announcements upon their upcoming original programming, and it's newest rebrand soon to take in around late March-early April.
The action thing seems kind of iffy too; that's just not where CN's head is right now. (TTGO! isn't even a fake action cartoon, it's a straight-up comedy.) Unless said show is primarily toyetic, action cartoons don't stand a snowball's chance on the current CN. Why should any studio go through the trouble of producing a kick-ass action cartoon for Cartoon Network when CN would just treat it like the scum you scrape off of tomato soup: under-promote it, under-advertise it, deathslot it, give it no support or encores, then pull it from their schedule and eventually cancel it when it (surprise, surprise) fails to generate ratings? When a Batman series can't thrive on a kids' network, there's something seriously wrong with how that network operates.
I do hope we get some info on the Boomerang rebrand, though. I'd like to know exactly when it's set to happen because I want to see Boom officially change guards, as it were. Make a ceremonial occasion out of it.

*Annoying Orange won't be mentioned since it's most likely cancelled.
My signature has nothing to see here.
