Well, hell.

Much to my annoyance, I discovered some crap in my DVR this morning. According to http://www.theouthousers.com/index.p...on-hiatus.html:

Surprisingly and without warning, while comics and geek culture are in the spotlight at New York Comic Con, Cartoon Network has made an abrupt change in their schedule, literally the last minute. According to their posted schedule, they have pulled new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice, a.k.a. the DC Nation block, in favor of repeats of Johnny Test and Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon TV show. For those thinking it may due to CN celebrating its anniversary or simply as a short break while Comic Con is happening, well, the same block of cartoons is listed again for next week. Again, there is no sign at all of DC Nation. Several Outhousers are reporting that the DC Nation episodes are still listed on their local cable guide, despite the changes to Cartoon Network's website.
Yeah..even io9 was showing a clip from what was supposed to be today's Green Lantern...steampunk Lantern DAMMIT!

I was eagerly awaiting the continuation, dammit!


Not an update on the schedule, but other potential bad news: http://www.theouthousers.com/index.p...g-justice.html

The one thing with the speculated reason (DC Nation being full) is it also suggests no more Green Lantern. Either way, bah if true.

Hopefully all of the finished episodes will be "leaked" online if they really did cancel it.

What the hell? I really like YJ and GL, and will be really pissed if they don't come back. I hope they at least finish up the current seasons. I thought they were really popular.

I'm not really into GL But was curious when the guide mentioned steampunk and no YJ either. Disappointing.

Is this some kind of falling out between Cartoon Network and DC?

Marketing? I don't see how they stand to benefit from this, in particular with such late warning that people are waking up to find their shows missing without warning or explanation.

Matell just pulled their Young Justice toy line, so that might be part of the reason.

Re: Cartoon Network Returning Genre Shows Sat AM

Ugh, just checked the dvr before coming here. At least Clone Wars was shown.
And titantv's online listings still shows GL & YJ is their respective time slots...for now. So, I'm hoping this was just the anniversary taking over an hour earlier...but since DC heroes are part of the network's successful history, yanking them doesn't make sense.

CN has pulled shows for lacking on the merchandise end before. That's business I guess but I just wonder if simply and abruptly yanking shows off the air helps the bottom line. I guess they're assuming that their viewers don't get turned away by doing these things. Maybe they're right for the majority of their audience, I don't know. Not their first time doing something like this.

Funny not long ago people were saying DC puts out crappy movies(except Batman) but great Animated TV shows while Marvel puts out great Movies(except Ghost Rider) but crappy Animated shows(except Avengers which of course is being canned) now DC is screwing up both.

You seem to confuse DC with CN.

It was CN that cancelled YJ and GL.
