Call Me Crazy . . .

, , , but if a show's the most watched show on a network, winning in nearly every timeslot it's in, and one of the most popular shows on cable television, you wouldn't cancel it, would you?

You don't know Cartoon Network very well, do you? Obviously neither you nor I don't, and I don't really understand why they cancelled Teen Titans. Seriously, why in the HELL did Cartoon Network cancel their highest-rated, most commercial-ready, all-ages-reaching series. Oh . . . right, the whole all-ages reaching thing. I forget that if you have breasts or a dropped testicle or two, Cartoon Network doesn't want you watching them.

*sigh*

We've established that TV, especially the channels owned by Time-Warner, is Bizarro World. Watching a show just seals its fate.

They are idiots. For a time, I thought Cartoon Network was the ultimate channel to have your own series on. Now oddly Nickelodeon has become a little bit more forgiving with it's shows.

Now the only network that seems to be keeping true to it's objectives is Turner Classic Movies. They show the greatest movies of all time and classic cartoons on Cartoon Alley.

Damn I hadn't heard about this. Honestly I like the TT being 25 and married I even got my wife to watch it. CN just seems like its going to the tube of late. I guess everything changes and thats why I live in the shell i know.

Amen, brother. Preach on! Why is it that every series that a parent and child can watch together and both find something funny/entertaining about seems to get the axe? While TT is supposedly 5 "seasons" old, it's only been on time-wise for a couple of years. That's not enough time for a series to premiere, develop a following, and really develop the plotlines and characters and then be able to tie it all up. Why is it that only people who don't really care about good TV get put in charge of programming?
