^^ On Cartoon Network, even if it's a quality show, it's still likely to be an action series, and not likely to have any of the relevant storylines of the original series.
I dunno. That depends more on the writers than the network, although if they really want to push the action thing, they could try to get it into the Toonami Adult Swim block. It would really depend on the content and whether CBS would be okay with the older skewing demographic of that block (and at most getting 2 million viewers at the 12:30AM slot).

That said, it would be a lot safer than depending on CN to not cancel the show, because they've been shedding action shows like there's no tomorrow, and Toonami/AS would probably bend over backwards to promote the show (Toonami's biggest problem is lack of budget, to the point that they've been basically doing paid reviews to hype up stuff like Halo 4 and Wreck-It Ralph).
