From early to mid 2010's, CN's popularity amongst older audiences was arguably at an all-time high, thanks to universally accessible shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, etc. However, it all changed once Christina Miller replaced Stuart Snyder in 2014, and CN has since explicitly presented itself as a kids network, and its shows reflect that. It was also at this point where a lot of older viewers ditched the network once again, as CN was narrowing down their audience to the 6-11 demo. Now, CN has been deemphasizing their live feed for years by encouraging binge-watching on their non-linear platforms. They also value online engagements more than TV ratings, which is fine and dandy, but with this in mind, I don't think "aging down" their programming slate goes hand in hand with this strategy. I don't know if I speak for everyone, but from my observation, older viewers - particularly teens - tend to be more vocal about the shows they follow and I think they binge-watch more than kids do, so making shows that don't appeal to them will ultimately undermine CN's online popularity. What's more mind-boggling to me is that the whole reason they "kidify" their image is because they wanted to win the core kids demo on LIVE TV i.e. the very platform they're putting less focus on. They're trying to get the best of both worlds but I just don't think it can work that way. I guess what I'm trying to say is CN should start making older-skewing shows again to win back the teenage crowd they lost. I think it would be beneficial for both the flagging live feed and their digital streaming platform. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy their current lineup, but I think it would be best if they tried to diversify the content they produce.
