Generator Rex had the potential to be a great show early on, and while it only recently lived up to its full potential, I never thought that it was a "bad" show. It would seem that children disagree, however, as the show sank like a rock in the ratings. Perhaps Cartoon Network never gave it their full support, but it was part of a very strong line-up at one point and it probably should have done better than it did. So what went wrong with Generator Rex? Why did its ratings collapse like it did?
