    It says here that The Deep (one of the shows currently airing on the network) is getting its very own 4-D attraction, and Universal happens to own a few theme parks, so...

    I'm pretty sure the show is popular in the world.

    I know, but i'm what i'm saying is, 4-D attraction + existing theme parks + more exposure for the network = success. If the attraction comes to Universal Studios Orlando/Hollywood, there would be more exposure for the network.

    I know its very small, but Universal Kids did better on Total Day with 50K viewers. Sure that's still miserable but still.

    It's promoting an app based on The Noise, a game show supposedly coming next month.

    Speaking of next month, Halloween is coming up soon, will Universal Kids air Scared Shrekless and Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space, or will Cartoon Network have them again this year? All will be revealed next month.

    Kind of a tough comparison without knowing what Sprout was pulling in. That could be a dramatic increase, or stagnation.

    I don't see why they'd pull the whole show over an incident in one episode. In fact, they could easily temporarily pull the episode, airbrush over it, and return it to rotation like nothing happened.

    Also, I'd argue that was meant to be a rocket.

    Does anyone notice Universal Kids' lack of variety in movies lately? They're showing How to Train Your Dragon for the umpteenth time today. For once I would like to see Megamind, The Lorax and Despicable Me.

    (DOUBLE POST)
    Universal Kids is also ignorant. They refused to air the 4th episodes of both DreamWorks shows, and now they're skipping Episode 3 of Little Big Shots, they're re-playing last week's episode and next week is episode 4.

    EDIT: It must be a different version of Episode 2, because the only things I remember are the parts where Steve Harvey says "I apologize" and the Russian boxer.

    It is possible the show could get pulled, remember the "breasts incident" with Oggy and the Cockroaches? Sure they ended up replacing the image, but these networks don't want bad publicity, even if they don't own the show.

    Besides even if the show leaves Universal Kids, there are still MANY ways to watch the show.

    I was gonna talk about that but I thought everyone forgot about it by now.

    Oggy will never air in the US ever again.

    So today I started seeing Sprout themed bumpers during the morning between breaks.

    They skipped Part 2 of Dragons' We Are Family and they're instead rerunning How to Pick Your Dragon.
