“Steven Universe” Repeats Return; Less “Adventure Time” & “Regular Show”
Cartoon Network gives… and takes. Starting Monday, regularly scheduled repeats of Steven Universe return to the line-up, two weeks since they were removed. With that though, there will be even less of the already less Adventure Time and Regular Show. Teen Titans Go! will also see a (very slight) reduction, while Uncle Grandpa gains more.
To anyone paying attention in the last year or so, it’s very clear Cartoon Network is only going to focus on a set number of shows throughout their schedule, and let other things ride into the sunset. Teen Titans Go! and Gumball are the main two. Uncle Grandpa and Clarence I’d say are next. Then Steven Universe. But for some reason, the two series that have been running the longest and have the most episodes to actually fill a line-up – Adventure Time and Regular Show, are now at the bottom of the “what we care about (as far as scheduling)” barrel. Then there’s the either “we have to air it” or the “it’s the only thing we have to show our past” (otherwise known as “this looks out of place now”) shows like Pokémon, Sonic Boom, Legends of Chima, Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry.
So with that… Cartoon Network’s new weekday line-up starting Monday, February 2:
