Welcome to my series of analysis of my very fist kids network that i watched- Cartoon Network through years and how much were people interested/ popular in those years. This time I will analyse year 2009.
Oh dear, many people consider this year to be one of CN's worst years, if not the worst. There were no new CN originals, we had FIVE new live action that were all universally panned and were ratings failure and 7 cartoons that were acquired. CN Real introduction. All of their pre-2007 have ended by this point and their originals like Secret Saturdays, Chowder and Flapjack were cancelled this year also. Johnny Test started to dominate the schedule. On bright side, there were few cartoons that supported the channel during this year, even though most of them were acquired cartoons or not original IPs.
I will now analyse how popular were cartoons that were running at the time and even those that have ended. Also just because some show is higher, it doesn't mean it has more quality than shows that are lower than them. Like for example: would you really consider that Johnny Test has more quality than Chowder.
NOTE: Besides CN originals, I will also include WB originals that CN was their home like Teen Titans, Justice League but not ones like Mucha Lucha and Static Shock because CN isn't their home network. Also I will include acquired shows from other countries that are/were shown on CN USA and other country's CNs like Totally Spies and Total Drama.
Shows in bold means that those shows had new episodes in 2009.
Also I will comment on shows that had new episodes in 2009 and some of their top non running shows that year because I don't want to make it that long of a read. Also won't show pictures of shows that had very little attention online in 2009.

1. Ben 10- Even thoughit ended the popularity is STILL growing. I mean I like Ben 10, but it is ridiculous how is there a huge interest for Ben 10 when comared to any other CN show aired.
2. Ben 10 Alien Force - It's spin-off is 2nd most popular for some reason.
3. Star Wars the Clone Wars- The most popular non Ben 10 show... is a Star Wars show.
4. Powerpuff Girls - It had a special called PowerPuff Girls Rule and was animated in Flash.
5. Totally Spies
6. Teen Titans
7. Total Drama - Total Drama is still thankfully huge on internet.
8. Code Lyoko
9. Ed, Edd & Eddy - Eds are the longest running CN show, running for 10 years and they ended this year with a bang.
10. Chaotic - CN picked up a random Canadian show and it was proven to be popular online, even though I never heard of it until recently.
11. The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy
12. Samurai Jack
13. Codename Kids Next Door
14. Transformers Animated - Well it ended this year. Will CN treat their future Transformers shows in future better? Spoiler alert: no.
15. Johnny Test - Everybody's favorite whip-cracking boy is gaining more popularity. I'm sure Nicktendo is proud of him.

17. Johnny Bravo -It had a Hindi episode this year for some reason.
18. Dexter’s Laboratory
