Re: Cartoon Network Returning Genre Shows Sat AM

Don't think this has been posted yet, but here's what Cartoon Network had to say on Twitter today:

https://mobile.twitter.com/cartoonne...14071869423617

Love the responses in there! So, it looks like hiatus until January; no official reason given. Some have speculated that this has happened because of the unexpected ratings dominance of Nick's new TMNT show. Basically, Cartoon Network is falling back to regroup before they burn all of their new content against something they can't beat right now.

I've heard no release dates, but could it be they're going to expand DC Nation to a 2 hour block with the new Batman show in January? Pure speculation on my part. Unfortunately, Cartoon Network has a bad history with their shows (as we've discussed in this thread), but I hope that they will at least finish airing what they have.

But TMNT airs after the DC stuff ends (at least here in AZ) so I don't see why that would affect that stuff.

I don't know how the minds of such people work but maybe they feel that TMNT strengthens the whole Nick Saturday lineup to the point that it weakens CN's? *shrugs*

I just hope they don't decide to put it up against The Turtles and/or Korra, because I really like them and would hate to have to pick between the two networks.

I've been enjoying it. But I wouldn't want to lose DC Nation because of it.

Re: Cartoon Network Returning Genre Shows Sat AM

Its really too bad that CN pulled the episodes. Now that I've seen them, they were really very good.

The Steam Lantern episode was fun and it suggests that Allan Scott could turn up at some point.

YJ Invasion, as always, was awesome. I'm very excited to see where it goes and who is really pulling all of the strings.

Before the Dawn was put up on iTunes. I don't know if it is still there, but there are other ways to get it.

Perhaps...but its not really plot point, was more of an oblique reference. But fair enough.

The Young Justice ep has the potential for similar references, but since they are more inferred and not actually mentioned in the ep...I decided not to mention them. Though the fan boars have lit up with a few possibilities.

Re: Cartoon Network Returning Genre Shows Sat AM

I'd like to monitor this thread for news about when DC nation will come back on the air, but I really don't want to be spoiled further about the contents of the episodes.

May I request that spoiler tags be used, if people feel that they must spill the beans?

Thanks!

It's still on iTunes. I doubt that it will get pulled. Why make things worse with the fans given what's happened. Plus since its already been made available on iTunes, that guarantees that it will be available via other means. WB/CN gain nothing by pushing already irrate fans away from legal purchases.

Cool, thanks for the head's up. Glad I'll at least get to see the Steam Lantern episode before the show disappears forever. lol
