Jim Samples became president in 2001 and his first CN original premiered in 2003: Star Wars Clone Wars. Then he gradually cancelled all of Betty Cohen's cartoons. This is why Samurai Jack was cancelled in 2004. By April 2005, only Billy & Mandy and Ed, Edd n Eddy remained.

Stuart Snyder did the exact same thing. He became president in 2007. His first original was Adventure Time in 2010. By September 2010, all of Samples' cartoons were cancelled.

Christina Miller became president in 2014 and her first programs premiered in 2016/2017: the PPG and Ben 10 reboots. When she left in 2019, two of Snyder's cartoons were still running: Steven Universe and We Bare Bears. Both ended in 2020. I feel she was less willing to cancel than her predecessors.

Tom Ascheim recently became president. Unicorn: Warriors Eternal will be his first CN original. He is also the president of WB Animation.

I have two questions:

1) Why do you guys think presidents do things like this?
2) What do you guys think Tom Ascheim will do?

I think the reason why presidents do this is because different presidents have different goals they want to set for the company they oversee.
I believe Tom Ascheim will make originals for both CN and HBO Max. I hope he brings programming blocks back to the channel.

If only it was possible for companies to rethink their decision to make movies exclusive to streaming back to their initial supposed theatrican run - they'll have to look at how the situation is faring in countries and regions.

Wonder why it's impossible to screen "outdated" or "delayed" movies when the situation eases.
Changed the banner to match the upcoming anniversary better. Based on the logo switch ident featuring Bloo.
MeTV went off the air for about 15 minutes, right during one of the last Svengoolie segments up until it was time for the news (which I get in my area instead of Star Trek).
Well Bakugan was made in Canada too, so...
