    You know Dan, speaking of ratings drop, I’ve checked Wikipedia’s pages of other CN shows: it’s just me or lately CN’s ratings are heavely dropping lately? Same with Nickelodeon actually althought that channel didn’t gave something good for a long time so it isn’t surprising (althought even CN is not really that better, Steven Universe and Adventure Time are the only current worthy shows on that channel right now…).

      It’s not you, Raff. AT was drawing north of 2 million regularly in previous seasons, and now apart from the Stakes mini-arc, it struggles to draw north of 1.5M.

      • Raffaele Lanza

        I’m wondering if those channels will learn some lesson from all of this, and will bring something REALLY worthy anytime soon…. (but somehow I’ve the feeling this won’t happen and the two channels will die soon….)

        • StatManDan

          They won’t “die soon,” There are several other factors going on such as other means of entertainment like on Netflix or Hulu. Many still fancy shows like AT and SU, but there are more options even compared to 3-4 years ago.

          • Raffaele Lanza

            Maybe you’re right……. I just hope the animation world will bring us something new and worthy soon, especially with Gravity Falls and Littlest Pet Shop ending soon, and the situation of the other worthy shows outside of Steven Universe still uncertain…. (speaking of which, if you have some good advices for upcoming potential worthy shows, I’d be happy to listen Dan)

          • StatManDan

            I’m interested to see how “The Lion Guard” turns out. I like the main characters in the pilot episode back in November, but I fear it might suffer from the retcons that are clear once you see them, especially those that surround Kiara. Plus, the show might suffer if they give too much spotlight to Bunga (the honey badger). The Timon and Pumbaa show in the 90s suffered by not having Simba around to be a straight man (or lion).

          • Raffaele Lanza

            I see….. there aren’t any other upcoming shows you keep an eye outside that and the Samurai Jack revival?
