Honestly I think CN is mostly alright. It's that they fucked up Boomerang so badly that's the problem. I don't even understand what they think the point of that channel is anymore. I'm sort of amazed they don't run a Cartoon Cartoon nostalgia block. It seems like such an obvious thing to do, unless people just really want to watch some CG Garfield and more TTG.
Pretty much this. Cartoon viewership went down among it's main target audience, kids, because they're now focusing their attention on stuff like video games and youtube. CN has to bring in more viewers by aiming towards an older target audience, mainly internet nerds and hipsters.
They were going strong again 2012-2014. But TTG killed the network
scheduling and the lack of wanting to support 3rd party action cartoons on the network.
One day you will look back and pine after these days.
This honestly. Most of the shows aren't bad, they just don't appeal to adults all that much. The kids like the shows just fine.
It's like watching some of your favorite cartoons from the 80s/90s now and then wondering why you liked them in the first place.
