Personally, I dont see anything wrong with a network wanting to stretch their boundries and try new things.    Change is often painful, but good.

HOWEVER, when there are walking knobs who can say things like "re-invent the network and re-energize our youth business overall,"  then I have bits of vomit form in the back of my mouth.    What kind of drone talks like this?

Cartoon network was the only network left I counted as good,so this is very sad news.

Your main mistake was in the assumption that "network" and "good" could exist within the same sentence non-ironically.

I'd like to see a reality show about LEGOs too.
Maybe a reality show about the people who make those giant LEGO sculptures?

Durnit, Cartoon Network. You were supposed to be different. You were supposed to be the network I could tune in to when I didn't want to see any actual human beings.

Does this mean Boomarang will start showing Kids Incorporated, Small Wonder and Saved by the Bell? :^)

I'm going to start a network called "The All Mystery Science Theater 3000" Network and never show any episodes of mst3k or any of the subsequent works of the writers/stars of the show.  I bet people would love that. 

At least Comedy Central is still showing stuff that's supposed to be comedic, though, right?  So we've still got that.

Does it matter, when people say Comedy Central sucks anyway, regardless of how many years its been sinced they watched it or what's currently airing? As long as people keep saying a given network sucks, those networks might as well actually try to suck. Then they can reboot and NOT suck. It's like New Coke. It's all a conspiracy.

Yeah, but like New Coke, no matter how much better it is, people will still prefer the original for some weird reason.

Yes, that was my point. Please look up the rivetting true story of New Coke and the conspiracy theories therein.

Well, I know I prefer Diet Coke, which is based on New Coke over the classic Coca-Cola or even the Zero version based off of classic. I don't know about conspiracy, but it definitely had more to do with brand recognition than taste. That's what they get for all the subliminal advertising.

And these people wonder why viewership keeps dropping and dropping.....

It's only a conspiracy theory if it isn't true.

They never expected New Coke to work.  It was just so they could bring back "Classic" Coke with high fruitose corn syrup instead of sugar after they bought up production of high fruitose corn syrup.  Kept "Classic" off the market just long enough that people wouldn't notice the change.

They changed the recipe for Coke - that's not a secret.

At least we got this out of it.



BTW, does this mean that they finally figured out who owns the character and they can release the shows on DVD?
