Didn't CN's demise happen after the Friday's Block ended? I also heard Jim Samples left in early 2007 so that might have something to do with the overall quality of the programming as well.Don't forget 1999 CCF (before the cartoons hosting), Fridays, and Fried Dynamite.
Exactly. Personally, I don't mind Cartoon Network doing live action stuff as long it had something to with animation, whatever be commercial segments or otherwise.
CN Real block started in 2009 and run until maybe fall 2011, I remember browsing around/reading comments on this site about how fans thought the shows were complete rip-offs. Annoying Orange was TERRIBLE!
