I'm not saying that your saying that people who hate teen titans go! should shut up, I agreeing with you.
If people don't like the show, that's fine.
Just don't be an asshole to people that do. (I'm not talking about you walruslui.)

im not saying that people who hate teen titans go! should shut up, im saying that the REASON certain people use to argue whether its bad or not sucks ass.

"oh my god its not as good as the original!" ugh, come up with actual criticism about its content and better reasoning on why you think its terrible, not just sound like a bandwagoner and go "oh no its terrible because they ruined the teen titans show!"

now what i think makes CN shitty now is the damn Networking Management cancelling great shows like Young Justice(!!!!) and Beware the Batman since they thought the ratings weren't as high as they wanted them to be, the system for why shows get greenlit and air are so different nowadays but THATS another discussion entirely
you forgot thundercats remake.

alot of cancelled CN shows do, but again, CN is a network designed for early-to-mid teen boys and rely on merchandising and ratings to renew a show for a second season. A show can be fantastic, but if the target demographic doesn't watch it as much as CN hopes and don't buy anything related to the series in merchandising form, then there is a good chance it will be cancelled. thats how CN is these days and it sucks :(

Yeah that's true sadly.
Hopefully CN starts doing multi-target demographic shows more.

But I can say one thing that CN did right. They cancelled Johnny Test.

I never said I hated TTG.. or UG..  Just not my favorites..  I do actually enjoy watching them on occasion..  It's just wacky crazy type shows tend to lose their charm after the 3rd or 4th repeat..  and they do so love to rerun their shows.  :/   Seriously..  my only problem with them is that they don't have the line up they used to.. and I'm not talking "great shows of nostalgia."  I mean they used to have 2-4 times the number of shows in their line up.  I loved that.

I'm pretty much on the same boat about them (TTG,UG).

Also they do need more shows (Old or New, either work really). Reruns of TTG! I pretty much avoid, unless it's one of the good episodes.

if they do new shows they have to take the risk of whether or not the population will like it and consider the budget, demographic, etc. its not as easy as "oh i have a good idea, lets make a show," it takes months (sometimes year(s)) just to get a show to be greenlit.

I understand it takes a long time..  between that and how quickly a network might deem something fit to cancel there simply isn't as many shows airing on any channel.  It's one of the things that keeps me from watching TV like I used to..  I have the attention span of a child and if you use reruns I lose interest...    :/     Not really the networks fault there I guess, but it's not like I can fix it either.

The early-mid 2000's were the best for Cartoon Network; After school, I'd always get to watch 2 episodes of 'Pokemon Johto' from there, I think it was Dextor's Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Scooby Doo. The night times were even better cause my mom and I use to sit down and watch 'Johnny Quest' together, that was our show back in the day.

Then we were introduced to "Ed. Edd, 'n Eddy" and this might just be me, but that had to have been one of the BEST shows on Cartoon Network. When they stopped airing it back in, I think 2008, that was when I personally thought Cartoon Network went to shit. I mean, 'Ben 10: Alien Force' was pretty decent, my uncle and I use to watch it at my paps place.

If they brought back some of their golden shows during the weekends, I bet their profits would sky rocket, IMO.

but the thing is, they CANT profit. the ratings have been already made and they no longer sell any merchandising in retail stores for those older shows.

re-runs are usually there to keep the fanbase intrested and continue watching the channel when the new stuff isn't on.

personally i don't really like using nostalgia as a reason to say that certain shows are better than the others, in the future, when the kids today are older theyre gonna look back and theyre gonna think the shows showing currently are the best ones out there in the future and so on.

its why using nostalgia as deciding factor just doesn't work for me.

Oh shit, how could i forget about courage the cowardly dog! That show wouldn't really fly today though as it is kinda strong in horror elements lmao, freaky ass show.
I just wish CN could try and cater to both the old and new CN lovers, mix it up with some new and a couple of the old shows. but I guess it don't work like that.

Well... I like Teen Titans Go! I like We Bare Bears. I like Regular Show (but don't watch it that often). I like Sonic Boom.

That should put in the category of I like it now.. but god I miss the old stuff... *sigh* I remember when Boomerang had the old Hanna-Barbera action cartoons.

I think they are both comparable but i feel like it had more depth back in the early 00's. Toonami is no contest, it was way better originally but thats for obvious reasons. Now Adult Swim i'd have to say personally i prefer when Sealab 20/20, ATHF, Harvey Birdman, The Venture Bros, Big O, Cowboy Beebop era was the best.
It's all the same in the end, matter and motion, simple or complex. No difference, finally. Death, transfiguration. Ashes to ashes and slime to slime, amen.
