Someone at IO9 was saying DC is having licensing problems with the Milestone characters, anyone know if this is true?

DC bought Milestone a few years back. Hard to see how licensing issues would come into play.

Also wouldn't affect Green Lantern if Milestone were a problem, and Green Lantern was pulled too.

I think they might have pulled Before The Dawn and Steam Lantern from ITunes. Or at least I couldn't find them anywhere.

Re: Cartoon Network Returning Genre Shows Sat AM

The sudden rescheduling of the DC Nation Block was just awful.

Cartoon Network lucked into two very decent shows in both Young Justice & Green Lantern and to yank both after just a few new episodes after an already lengthy hiatus wasn't a very smart move on the network's part.

This has behind the scenes fiasco written all over it sadly.

At least, thanks to the internet, we're able to see both series most recent episodes...

The reveal of the Light's partner and how it ties into some other storylines was well done.

"Steam Lantern" was a bit of a one-off and seemed like a token attempt to bring Steampunk into the show, yet the mention of a Green Lantern in a red shirt with a cape was a nice touch.

Has anyone else had trouble finding them on ITunes?

Explaining cartoon networks idiotic idea to not air any new episodes of YJ and Gl

The sudden pull of last weeks episode was so abrupt not even iTunes knew about it

They were promptly pulled.

In the the aftermath the young justice episode was the number 2 most downloaded thing

I'm too stubborn to pay them for pulling the episode.

This is coming across like an effort to the kill the shows.

To keep my DVR from filling up with junk, I'm forced to delete the series recordings for them. That means I might conceivably forget to set them back up, if they ever do air again.

^You could just set the dvr to only record new episodes in that particular time slot.

Well, that's the way it's set, but because the schedule hasn't been updated, I get these dragon shows!

Your cable system/satellite provider still hasn't gotten updated listings now a week after the fact? lame.

Neither did mine (Comcast) for that matter. Zap2It isn't working for me at the moment but TVGuide.com is showing them listed under this morning as well.

CN has also been advertising it's arrival in Canada but looks like it's going to be add on channel.

Not sure where that's going to leave Teletoon who've shown a lot of the stuff that airs on CN in the U.S though apart from the Clone wars we haven't had any new YJ or A:EMH in recent times.

Correct. Yes, it's lame, alright. But lame or not, I'm not filling up my DVR with shows I don't want to watch, while I'm out of town.
