I can't help but feel a disconnect here. As you also said,
So, if they're intentionally sabotaging shows that cost serious money-dollars to make like YJ or Beware, then CN is just causing strife for one part (DC Comics) of the company whole (Time Warner/Warner Bros.). It's like the thumb trying to sabotage the functionality of the middle finger because it doesn't get the satisfaction of telling people "eff you!" when juxtaposed to the hands other, folded digits. You'd think they'd be getting in trouble from the higher-ups.
Yeah when you put it like that it doesn't make sense at all. If they are all under one parent company, that being Warner Bros, then you would think that would want all the shows to be successful. Maybe the original content shows like Adventure Time and Regular show are done by in house studios where shows like YJ or Beware the Batman have to be out sourced to more expensive studios to be made
I mean I know that CN stopped airing so many non original CN programming because it was cheaper to make their own shows instead of paying the rights to show other cartoons. Sucks none the less because there really is no other option for cartoon viewing much anymore. Even most kid networks like Nickelodeon, Disney, etc show more live action programming than they do cartoons, and sadly most of the cartoons they do show aren't worth watching with the exception of a few.
Makes me really sad because when I was a kid, yes the "good ol' days", I would come home and watch cartoons every day after school. Thundercats, GI Joe, He-Man, Transformers, etc, and on Saturday mornings ABC, CBS, NBC, and eventually FOX and CW had blocks of Saturday morning cartoons. Now you have to have Diseny XD, The Hub, or Cartoon Network to get Saturday morning toons. I think CW is the only basic cable or non cable channel that has any type of Saturday morning cartoons.
