    One Friday I'm watching the "Best of" Fridays then the next week I'm watching something called "Fried Dynamite" with some idiot kids running around talking about nachos and cheese. I know I'm bringing this question up a little late, but what happened to Tommy and Tara? Did they quit? Did they get fired? Did they get layed off due to financial issues?

    Now you may not haved liked "Fridays", but you have to admit it is better than this thing they have on now. To make it even worse, they don't have new episodes anymore. It's all on Thursdays now. Come to think of it, does anyone know what happened to the girl that used to host with Tommy that eventually got replaced by Tara? Does anyone have an answer to this or is CN playing CIA again. The one thing I must say is that I think nothing will ever top CCF.

    Thanks in advance.

    Really nothing can replace the original. But for your question it died along with everything else good and decent about CN.

    Tara's in Los Angeles now. She has two videos from last month (click Go! from her website) where she is interviewing celebs for a movie premiere and some image awards.

    Oh! And Cartoon Network Fridays Vol. 1 is out! I can't believe I didn't check for that earlier!

    I'm not trying to start conflict, but I heard from someone who works low on the totum pole at CN that she got fired because they wanted white hosts. It's just what a friend heard, I don't have a link or an (important) name to give you.

    I think another good question is what's happening with Fried Dynamite? By Fall, it'll be replaced by a new, Western-oriented action block, and what's left of the comedies will continue to premier on Thursdays.

    The original destroys everybody. At the beginning, I thought Fridays was decent. However, as it went on, it really started sucking. Fried Dynamite. I HAVEN'T WATCHED IT!!!!!

    Cartoon cartoon fridays ran from 1997-2003.

    Since CN was going through a major revamp,They had to get rid of CCF for Cartoon Fridays

    Cartoon Fridays ran from 2003 or 2004-2007

    i think that around the time fridays was nearing it's end,Fried Dynamite was being promoted and Fridays wasn't promoted any more (it's just like when The CW was being promoted while There was hardly any promotion of UPN or The WB)

    But I heard that Fried Dynamite is ending in the fall() and a new action block(I forgot what the name was) is desinged to replace fried dynamite.

    So i guess that fried dynamite will end soon.But i miss CCF(Cartoon Cartoon Fridays)

    But, the idea of a new action block kinda sounds stupid. I mean, don't they already have one? Poor Toonami.

    well from what I herd this is a western animation aimed block, and since Toonami apparently sounds Japanese it will mostly have anime, to me thats stupid because the last time I checked Toonami housed both.

    Cartoon Network is making a lot of mistakes lately,such as stopping airing One Peice for Ben 1O reruns,ending Master Conrol Reruns,and stop airing Blue Dragon for more Pokemon.Sociaty these days are being destroyed from the inside.I guess when the mafia went into hiding,they decided to sabatoge entertainment for revenge.

    Does anyone remember how CN put Goosebumps on there for October since its the month of Haloween? But then they kept showing it after Haloween for who knows how long and it took up half of the Toonami time slot. Are they still doing it because I stopped watching CN?
