DC Nation Pulled From Schedule? (Updated)

Those hoping for some new DC Nation this morning might be in for a surprise. DC Nation has been pulled from Cartoon Network's line-up for at least the next two weeks.



Source: Cartoon Network

October 12, 2012



Surprisingly and without warning, while comics and geek culture are in the spotlight at New York Comic Con, Cartoon Network has made an abrupt change in their schedule, literally the last minute. According to their posted schedule, they have pulled new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice, a.k.a. the DC Nation block, in favor of repeats of Johnny Test and Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon TV show. For those thinking it may due to CN celebrating its anniversary or simply as a short break while Comic Con is happening, well, the same block of cartoons is listed again for next week. Again, there is no sign at all of DC Nation. Several Outhousers are reporting that the DC Nation episodes are still listed on their local cable guide, despite the changes to Cartoon Network's website.

New episodes of Ben Ten: Omniverse and Star Wars: The Clone Wars will continue to air at their regular time. And the reason for this hiatus? There is no word from Cartoon Network or DC officially on when the block will return, and they're unlikely to respond to inquries from us, as we are industry pariahs. Even more bizarre is that the block had just returned with new episodes. This reporter will keep you updated on the story as it develops and more information is learned.

Updates as they occur:

of DC Nation's Green Lantern was as shocked by the move as fans:

 

   Still no statement from Cartoon Network as to why they pulled successful shows and put up re-runs and unexpected shows last minute.  The assumption is that DC Nation will return after October, but with no word from the network, fans and even DC Nation show creators are left guessing. Perhaps fans at NYCC can swarm the Cartoon Network booth and get answers?

 





Update 2:

   Cartoon Network finally remembered people actually watch their network and might want some answers:

I hope this isn't true, but at least I have a warning it might be happening. It's still listed here, but the guide doesn't always update for last minute changes.

It might be a glitch. SUPPOSEDLY. But then again it might not be.

They won't. Nick invested a TON of money into TMNT.

I have no clue last week for some reason my stupid dvr recorded 1 minute of both programs and ended...I was furious been waiting for them to be put up as Video on Demand and now seeing episodes of how to train your dragon which is a great show replacing the time slot but reruns of it just made me even more mad. If it was a new episode then I would be mad but be like hey at least some story progression for my end but no.

I do love ben 10 but the new series is still not the same as the previous....whatever I'm rambling out of confusion and frustration but still DC Nation was a huge success and if it was pulled because of parents complaining then maybe they should just put it on at a later hour like adult swim. Avatar is never pulled from Nickelodeon and that has as much darkness in themes as the DC block did for young justice....did enjoy the green lantern series but doesn't have the kick that young justice has....brought back the good old justice league days for me and I am going to completely stop watching CN if they remove that block permanently and only support their adult swim block.

I know. CN is a wonky bunch at times. There's still no official word on the move. However, Gl producer Giancarlo Volpe and YJ co-creator are Brandon Vietti PISSED as well. Just check out their tweets:

For the record Brandon said this about it:

I hate waking up to bad news.


Hopefully it's just he found out about it and not anything worse.
