If anything, they should put the Warner Bros. side of the business in charge. They can handle animated programs far better. Plus, we could see Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, and Batman The Animated Series back on the channel.

Not getting to that
It's funny that people wanted the change, they got it. Yet they still complain. Schedules are actually better than they were in 2020. This week isn't good but it has had a good schedule usually. There are also changes every week now, not the same auto-pilot one.
What do you mean by this one?
As long as this Discovery thing goes, I don't think they will control it much and let WB control it since they actually know how to handle cartoons unlike Discovery execs. So pretty much no changes to the kids TV and HBO Max animated side, I'm sure.
Ok.

Which is why Hasbro should just buy it from them.
Hasbro doesn't have that kind of money. They couldn't own a channel by themselves, and after what happened with The Hub, I doubt that Hasbro would want to give that another shot. They don't have enough programming to run a 24/7 channel by themselves anyway. If The Hub has taught us anything, it's that having a cable channel run by a toy company is a bad idea.

I'm pretty sure letting WarnerMedia handle the kid-vid was the plan all along. Discovery hasn't shown any real interest in children's programming since before The Hub folded.
Plus, we could see Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, and Batman The Animated Series back on the channel.
Warner Bros. doesn't need Discovery Family for that; they could be airing those shows on TV right now if they wanted to, and they are -- on HBO Max. There's currently a new Animaniacs airing on Hulu and new Tiny Toons and Batman shows in the works; as such, WB doesn't really see a huge need to run the original shows on TV again, especially since they're available for streaming. Least of all on Discovery Family. WB already has 2 kids' channels, so they don't need Discovery Family for anything.

I love the optimism, but I really don't see Warner Bros. wanting to manage/take over Discovery Family. Why would WB need or want to launch another kid's channel when they already have 2?

Then what do you predict will happen to the channel?

Discovery will probably remake Disc Fam into something else, maybe another documentary or lifestyle channel. If Disc Fam isn't bringing in a significant amount of ad revenue, they could just shut the channel down entirely.

Well, Tom Ascheim has been laid off and his position is being eliminated, and the networks and studios are being reshuffled to separate divisions of the newly merged company. It's chaos all around.
Well, that stinks. Discovery has proven time and again that they have no idea how to run a kid's network. Let's hope that Warner Bros. Discovery at least puts someone in charge of Cartoon Network who knows what they're doing.

Today is the official upfronts, I'm personally not expecting anything other than what's already announced.

I do expect some announcements. Two at that, honestly.

We got the Craig of the Creek movie and Season 5, its Jessica spinoff, Teen Titans GO!, Victor and Valentino (or what's left of that series), Tig 'N' Seek, We Baby Bears, Cartoon Cartoons and the final CNS Shorts Department shorts, the final Summer Camp Island episodes, Cartoonito, HBOMax....

Gross Girls, Invincible Fight Girl, Battu, Tiny Toons, Night Begins to Shine, Batman: Caped Crusader, Jade Armour, My Adventures with Superman, Battu, Unicorn: Warriors Eternal, the Driftwood movie.

What else? Discovery Family crossover shows? A few unannounced projects? 30th Anniversary dedication?

Personally, I hope that we get a revival of Bone announced at the Upfront.
Netflix already cancelled it, so maybe HBO Max can pick it up.

Well.....the Warner Bros Discovery upfront came and went, and at least we got ONE thing that came out in the upfront for Cartoon Network is Chelm: The Smartest Place on Earth


And....yeah that's it lol

As disappointing the upfront was, at least one is better than none (shrugs).

Yeah.......

I'm not counting it.....

Can't even get a update on what's going on.....

I have a strange feeling that either everything's being held back further, being moved to HBO Max or they're getting ready to kill Cartoon Network, like, they robbed CN of it's own studio and they killed The Hub, so what makes you think they won't kill CN?

Because unlike The Hub, Cartoon Network is a global brand that rakes in millions annually, plus it's tied to one of the biggest entertainment studios on the planet, so they'd be insane to do so.

Look, I liked The Hub, but it and Cartoon Network aren't even close to being the same thing. CN has a plethora of original shows, franchises and properties at its' disposal, the same unfortunately couldn't be said for The Hub. The Hub didn't earn what CN earned.

Since there were no new announcements regarding CN beyond that one Chelm special and some live-action stuff, I'm going to assume that everything that was previously announced for CN is still underway.

Yeah, Zaslav has said that he might want to change how WBD does things regarding kids, young adult, family and cartoon entertainment, but he also said that he had no plans to abandon WB's animated properties. The guy wants to "crank out hits", so why would he dump the CN originals, Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera and DC, their biggest cash cows?

Zaslav might change CN (i.e., make it more live-action friendly and consequently turn it into what's essentially a Nick clone) but he's not going to kill it. The plan is to save WB and ending Cartoon Network would be career suicide.

In the now, man
Warner's upfronts rarely announce much for Cartoon Network. [adult swim] tends to get a couple of announcements, but CN tends to save their news for their own upfronts or at other points in the year.

Also keep in mind that we've had a plethora of news about Cartoon Network lately. A few new series and movie announcements, as well as a change in management. It may be too soon to reveal or even know if there is more to share. Please be patient.
