This is how the pay TV kids channels performed ratings wise in the US in 2021 and the results are shocking (these drops were basically the same last year):

Nickelodeon 335k (-32%)
Disney Jr 258k (-17%)
Disney Channel 233k (-35%)
Nick Jr 232k (-31%)
Cartoon Network 201k (-26%)
Disney XD 83k (-13%)
Boomerang 77k (-16%)
Nicktoons 67k (-24%)
Discovery Family Channel 43k (-25%)
Teennick 37k (-37%)
Universal Kids 35k (+3%)

To put things into perspective since 2014, Disney Channel has lost 88.1% of its total audience and Cartoon Network is down by 79.3% and Nickelodeon by 74.5% since 2016.
It's crazy how many kids now don't watch the linear kids channels at all.
For a lot of them it is exclusively Youtube and gaming. Lots of kids don't even have a TV at home.

today, I am getting more and more interest on S U.
Today I enjoyed trying some nostalgic online CN games through the Wayback Machine. Some games didn't work, such as select KND games (DCR files instead of SWF ones) or the Puffy Ami-Yumi games (Dish It Out had Flash Player compatibility issue while World Tour just couldn't start after the controls tutorial).
Happy 60th birthday to Greg Weisman. Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice are all shows that I have enjoyed watching, overall.
so...remember when toonami got controversies for showing something on the fanart segment
I just saw a Frozen 10-Year Anniversary ad on YouTube.

I am officially ancient.
