    I'm not a huge wrestling/WWE/Slam fan either, but I think it was confirmed a few pages back that Slam is getting a season 2, so it will be back on the lineup. The only reason it's not on now is because WWE and reruns usually don't mix well, so WWE likely told Saban not to rerun it.

    They also have to add Digimon Fusion this fall which I assumed would take JLU's place.

    To be honest, I could do without Digimon and Slam. Like Light Lucario, I like the current line up. Although I haven't been watching Sonic X so I'd be okay if something new came in at 8 am.

    My problem is that they appear to be delaying the inevitable, both with Slam returning and JLU leaving. Though with PR:LG possibly coming back as well (it's under "Episodes on Vortexx", while everything else not currently running is under "Episodes on MyVortexx.com"), I guess it could be possible to boot the DM rerun as well, and possibly put Sonic X as a lead in for ZeXal, which will probably need all the help it can get right now, since it's college football season, and the 11 AM hour is the most liable to be replaced (though it's usually rescheduled), and reruns for an even older series of a franchise that's been dead in the water for years probably won't help, even if it's the most popular.

    I made that Youtube channel to prove how easy it is to fake these things. Since then, B-Daman Crossfire has been confirmed to air on YTV in Canada.

    That other channel has received copyright claims from Vortexx Entertainment Ventures LLC, pretty much ending any doubt on its official status:

    Contractual obligations to Konami prevent them from disrupting the Yu-Gi-Oh hour. They probably couldn't remove DM even if they wanted to.

    It's possible that the contract only guarantees that The CW will be the only home for new episodes of the franchise. The deal for the hour was probably only for the first year of Vortexx, and we're now in Season 2. Besides, it's airing on Nicktoons, so I doubt Konami would mind too much.

    Nicktoons isn't in a tonne of homes.

    Speaking of which, that kind of rules out any hope of new Power Rangers shows on The Hub. Not only would that clash with the fact that it's a Hasbro owned channel promoting Bandai toys, but Hasbro Studios is putting stuff on Vortexx because The Hub's just not in as many homes as they'd like. I suspect the reason why Kaijudo hasn't been picked up yet is because it pulls abysmal numbers on The Hub, which is honestly pretty sad.

    I wouldn't mind Digimon joining the lineup, but I could do without Slam. I knew that it was already returning at some point with a new season, but I'm not a wrestling fan and the current lineup generally works for me.

    I doubt that they'll get rid of the DM rerun. They're obligated to air an hour of Yu-Gi-Oh! due to their agreement with Konami. They might be able to replace DM with a rerun of another series or a new episode of Zexal, but I doubt that they could replace it with another non-Yu-Gi-Oh! series. It's not a good timeslot and it isn't getting great ratings, neither are new episodes of Zexal for that matter, but it isn't going to be replaced. I also wouldn't consider the franchise dead in the water. It certainly hasn't been that popular, especially the anime spin-off series, but it still produces new anime, new manga, new cards and is re-releasing the DM series on DVD and Blu-Ray. It isn't popular, especially the anime, but I wouldn't say that it's dead in the water exactly.

    I don't know if there's anything in the contract, that we've read anyway, that indicates that the hour deal was only for the first year of the Vortexx. While it's true that the series is airing on Nicktoons, it isn't in a lot of homes. If it was airing on Nick, then maybe Konami would be fine would be more okay with that, but I'd doubt that they'd be fine with DM getting that little exposure.

    I thought Vortexx was obligated to dedicate an hour of its programming to Yu-Gi-Oh! as mandated by the Konami agreement, which expires in 2015. Unless I'm remembering incorrectly.
