    Oh, you mean Diedrich Bader as Guy and Josh Keaton as Hal. I didn't think of that. Now, if they'd brought in Rino Romano, who's played both Spidey and Batman, then that would be kind of weird.

    Well, hell.

    Much to my annoyance, I discovered some crap in my DVR this morning. According to http://www.theouthousers.com/index.php/news/118505-dc-nation-on-hiatus.html:

    Yeah, it's extremely annoying. Hope we get some answers soon.

    I was surprised nobody had any comments on YJ last week, considering we got to "meet" Tigress and that they
    blew up Mount Justice.

    Yeah I was surprised that no one had commented on last week's episode given how it ended and the suggestion that they threw outthere.

    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.

    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.:lol:

    You seem to confuse DC with CN.

    It was CN that cancelled YJ and GL.
