Cartoon Network Pre-Empts DC Nation Programming Block For Remainder Of October 2012


According to scheduling details released by Cartoon Network, the DC Nation programming block will be pre-empted for the remainder of October 2012 starting today. New episodes of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, along with new animated short-form content, was originally scheduled to air during the DC Nation block this morning at 10:00am (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network, but was replaced at the last minute with other programming. The Fall 2012 season of the block – which included new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Young Justice, and new animated shorts – started up back up just two weeks ago after a summer hiatus. Representatives for Cartoon Network have yet to return any inquiries.


The schedule changes were quietly revealed late last night – Friday, October 12th, 2012 – through a programming update on the official Cartoon Network website. Promotions advertising new DC Nation content slated to air this weekend released earlier in the week were also removed. Reaction to this sudden schedule change has been uniformly negative across various social media platforms.


Cartoon Network previously announced an entire month of new DC Nation programming for October 2012, with new content slated to run straight through to December 2012 before taking a winter hiatus and then returning again with new content come March 2013. This last-minute schedule change now throws the originally scheduled plans off-track. The DC Nation programming block will be replaced with back-to-back episodes of DreamWorks’ Dragons: Riders of Berk for the remainder of October. Please note schedule details are subject to change without notice, so stay tuned for any further possible changes.


DC Nation – including both Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series – remain off the Cartoon Network schedule for the time being, though could possibly turn up in an as-of-yet unannounced new timeslot. When the DC Nation block was originally announced in 2011, Cartoon Network confirmed a three-year commitment to the programming initiative.

Cartoon Network never ceases to amaze me with this kind of stuff. What show in the history of their network other than Star Wars: The Clone Wars has performed well enough not to be jerked around at every turn? They're cartoons. Just how many viewers do they expect/need to leave well enough alone? It's pretty ridiculous. I don't expect Young Justice to survive. Cartoon Network seems so reluctant for it to succeed.
