TCW Expected to Stop Running on Cartoon Network

While on my tablet earlier today I was browsing through Comic Booked via Pulse News; while seeing that other shows on Cartoon Network are being cancelled after they finish their seasons, it is also stated that Disney wishes to pull TCW from CN so that it can be on one of their channels.

This makes sense seeing that a now Disney product (Star Wars) would be on a Disney channel....but it just feels wrong to me. Personally, waking up on a Saturday morning (and / or going on my DVR) and turning to Cartoon Network seems typical and nothing strange....possible future Saturdays turning it to a Disney channel (something is telling me Disney XD or whatever it's called) seems wrong and creepy..

So far there is no word on which channel specifically Disney is moving TCW to, but after this season is over, TCW will not be on Cartoon Network unless some negotiations happen, etc.

I just want to see how others feel about this recent news.

TCW is an abomination of the Star Wars universe, it should be taken off all programming.

It was designed to get the younger generation into Star Wars, but you know what the younger generation thinks? (i.e my kids and their friends. who are 10-15.. supposedly the target audience)

They think it's boring as watching grass grow. The can't get excited because they never experienced real starwars, just force fed this animated atrocity.
Re-subscribed SWTOR.. my server is empty and I can't pay for a transfer. Woo hoo, thanks bioware.

It got some good ideas and characters, but they couldn't develop these good things well enough.

They made both her and Viszla stupid in season 5 to push the story go quickly since they are short of time.

Hi just want to step back in (been a tad busy sinse I started this); please don't turn this thread into an arguement about a specific character, etc. I made this to see how people felt about watching a Star Wars show on a Disney channel instead of something a tad more mature / for an older crowd.

Couldn't care less, both channels serve pretty much the same crowd with the same type of content, they both aim for the same demographic and neither channel can claim to be for a more "mature" or for "older crowd"

Pretty sure the Disney channels wouldn't be putting in refs that people in their late teens or twenties would know about haha.

But then again if you honestly don't care, please don't bother to post here - thanks.
