    Maybe this way Sonic Boom will do better, with DC Super Hero girls airing nearby.

    Hopefully Sonic Boom sticks around, It would be a shame to see it fade away after finishing like Regular Show.

    Unfortunately, it seems the most likely scenario. They dumped this season on Boomerang after just a few episodes (heck, those first few episodes premiered at the 6AM death slot), so CN clearly doesn't have an interest in it. I'd be shocked if it even gets a third season under these conditions, and if it somehow does, I'd be okay if they just moved it to the app. After this week, Boomerang will have NOTHING for it in terms of premieres. Turner might as well just pull the plug come January.

    It already did but it probably won't air on Boomerang US.

    There are really 2 possible outcomes
    a.) They will put it on the channel
    b.) They will put it on the app

    If anything, it going on the app (either CN's or Boomerang's) would be a huge step up compared to how it is now. If you don't have the channel, you'd basically need to rely on CN's On Demand, and even then you'd have to wait a month or so.

    Sonic Boom will be replaced with, you guessed it, Tom and Jerry at 6PM starting next weekend.

    Not only doesn't show the same episodes, they air it nonstop, that's why I'm taking a break from watching that channel.

    I'm not complaining, but adding Classic Tom and Jerry reruns on the Weekends at the same time as the weekdays is just unnatural, if you ask me. The channel is on autopilot at this point. The only times they ever put in effort on the linear channel is when it's holidays like Halloween or Christmas. All they're doing at this point is re-adding and removing shows that have already on the Boomerang and adding shows that have aired on Cartoon Network. I have a nasty suspicion that 2018 won't be any different than 2017 has been for Boomerang.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the linear channel either changed its name or close entirely.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Turner change Boomerang's name to "Cartoon Network 2" since some of the programming that airs/aired is from CN.

    I'd rather they sell it to Warner Bros and re-name it as "WB Family."

    ...I'd think they would have kids programs in the daytime and family programming at night. Basically a competitor to Universal Kids and Discovery Family.

    Boomerang is already owned by Warner Bros or the company that owns it (Time Warner)

    Turner owns Boomerang. Though TimeWarner owns both WB and Turner, they're still separate companies.
