What would've happened to Cartoon Network if Fox had purchased Time Warner back in 2014?

Well, had Fox bought Time Warner, then we could've seen The Simpsons airing on Adult Swim since it's the only major Fox animated show from the Nineties to have never aired on the channel, whereas King of the Hill, Family Guy and Futurama have.

I would say Fox could be a better contender than AT&T and Discovery, but I can't imagine that would've work in the long run if that were to happen. It would be just as messy as we are in now.

Yes, Fox bought WB.

5 years later, Disney own 20th Century and WB.

Disney: I'm proud to be a biggest studio in the world.

Regardless what you think of the Mudrochs due to politics they are known to be very good business partners. I know for a fact that CN wouldn't have been spamming Teen Titans Go so much if they were in charge.

You think so?

Fox didn't care about Fox Family, nor is Saban many, many years ago.

Fox basically let CN to run on own whichever they fit, especially run the marathon and let look at FXX, they had marathon of The Simpsons a lot of time. Nat Geo ran the marathon frequently as well. FXM run same movies again and again, so not much difference under Fox and Disney.

Fox chose to dump 20th Century to Disney, so we know about true color of Fox.

Fox CEO doesn't control the divisions, so it is up to managers to run the networks, so decision with CN schedule is from manager, not CEO.

CEO ensures that business is operating and make the profit and share the report with shareholders, and managers run the operation.

This quote used to be a hilarious meme I'd use to counter salty fanboys. But now that I've seen it in context of the episode... yikes. No wonder the Simpsons went downhill when the writers thought so little of what garbage they're feeding their audience. Meanwhile, South Park...

Also, ironically, this quote felt far more obnoxious than most of SP's lines because of the context.
episode 4 of the really loud house has the same stock scream sound effect from that "its monday... already?" garfield meme

and they play it twice in 15 seconds
Check out @Sam the Cartoonist 's thread in The Drawing Board, The Shapes!


There you'll find a link to a truly wild and funny comic strip. It's great.
I wonder if Channel 5 will get a new logo next year, given that BBC One and Two got theirs last year and ITV1 and Channel 4 got theirs this month.
Starting Mon, Dec 5, The Simpsons will be replacing King of the Hill from 2pm-5pm on FXX.
