    WOOT! I hope this means a fourth season of JLU. I'm surprised a new 10:30 episode would get better ratings than a 10:00 new episode of the same show...

    Seems like a pretty opportune moment to say "In your face, CN." Who would have thought that no promotion at all leads to ratings gold?
    alot of shows had great rateings but got pulled anyway. After awhile CN would just give it the samurai Jack routine.

    i would not say Cn had no faith in the show, but wanted us to have no faith in it. I think Cn wants to make room for some new show they got cooking up, and JLU is takeing up space.

    gotta make room for future classics like bo bo bo bo bo bo bobo bobobo bo or whatever the heck that show's called...

    anyhow, i was always under the impression that this show was really struggling in the ratings...aparently it's not, it's just that CN is giving it a total shaft.

    JLU has always gotten pretty good ratings. I don't know why people think it doesn't.
    The world's 225 richest people now have a combined wealth of $1 trillion. That's equal to the combined annual income of the world's 2.5 billion poorest people.

    Something to think about.

    Maybe with CN's obsession for the perfect ratings they'll realise that they should renew JLU for a 4th season.

    With all this buzz of the Legion of Doom, I wasn't surprised that it did that well.

    Well, it's not a guarantee of a new season, but it does give some ammo for the show being renewed. I mean, it's not impossible for CN to cancel a top rated show, but it might be enough to make them take a second look. It's good news even if it isn't "season 4" news.

    If Cartoon Network gets tired of JL/U (even despite good ratings), they oughta sell it to the Sci-Fi Channel

    This is awesome news. I never had any doubt about JLU ratings and I think its a great slap on CN´s face. I mean what is wrong with them about this NO PUBLICITY at all for such a good show. Dont they value the talents behind it? What a lack of respect .

    Okay, so who can answer why CN would cancel a show that gets such great ratings?

    Merchandising? There's tons of JLU stuff out there for kids to buy.

    And even if they *don't* sell a ton of merchandise, you're telling me show's like "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" or whatever it's called sells MORE merchandise?

    No way.

    So why would they cancel a show that does this well?

    One question that nobody has asked but means the world.

    JLU got good ratings, but with which demographics?

    Whats more is that JL/JLU get no air time on weekdays. Despite the good ratings Cartoon Network does not think it is worthy of the main schedule. Probably becuase it isn't just a black and white show like most of the others. (Teen Titans and Static Shock for example) It also might be thought to appeal only to boys. (if thats true I wouldn't be shocked)
    8. Handle or recommend handling so that it stays handled.

    Good idea. JLU along with Megas XLR. Those two shows would go great with Tripping the Rift.

    Logic only applies to CN when in Bizaro world.

    Because they are:

    A) retarded **** throwing chimpanzees

    B) The Japanese who will take us over "within"

    3) retarded **** throwing chimpanzees spliced with the DNA of Mattel suites.

    This is the million dollar question. If it was with adults we're screwed. If boys showed up in equal measure however there is a glimmer of hope.

    At this point, I think a little optimism is warranted. It may not happen or even PROBABLY happen but the fact that it was the most watched show on CN with ZERO promotion will speak louder to execs than any message board or fan base possibly could.
