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.

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