Before my screening of Up, I caught an ad for CN Real, Cartoon Network's new live-action reality programming block.
CN Real series include what appear to be Ghost Hunters with kids, Survivorman with kids and Cash Cab on a roller coaster.
Is Discovery Kids that formidable a competitor?
I know content expansion is inevitable on cable, but couldn't Cartoon Network have greenlit, say, a live-action Time Warp Trio series instead? Something more consistent…

It's in the Bag and Money Game? Whuh? Where are Lucky $even and One Away and fuckin' Golden Road?
Golden Road is the best Price Is Right game by far!
Time Warner Cable replaced Mark Cuban's HDNet with (heh) MavTV, which bills itself as "TV created by men for men."
And what do men think men want to watch?
Ar ar ar!
Idea: Family Guy just the cutaways. Edit it like Robot Chicken and air it against Saturday Night Live.
