it's quite simple to see what happened. all of the good old reruns stopped rerunning, they are trying to take a step forward in entertainment, only to stumble, but that is natural. said stumble is CNreal, but at the same time that stumble is what nickelodeon did before it became 6 hours of spongebob. remember temple of the silver monkey. simply put, cartoon network hasn't gone bad, but it is experimenting, and that is a good thing. now if adult swim didn't hate anime the channel may be worth watching more often.
