Class of 3000 Forums

Cartoon Network (ended 2008)

I don't see it having much of a chance.

    Now before you start to flame me, at least read this.
    I don't see this show lasting long at all, here's why.
    1. Celebrity music tie-ins don't work. Didn't work for NKOTB, MC Hammer, or Gene Simmon's Rockzilla, so I highly doubt it's gonna work for Andre 3000 either.
    2. Same old "Lets mix a bunch of kids from all of the different ethnic groups/social classes!" formula.
    3. They're hyping the crap out of it on CN, and overhyping anything is bad.

    You're blasting a show that hasn't even aired yet?

    How is stating a handful of facts blasting anything?
    On the same coin, why are you so defensive of it?

    CN is not forcing you to watch a show you don't like.

    If you don't like it, just shut your traps, don't bother anyone else who actually likes this show and post your whinings else where.

    I give it the first few episodes. Then Cartoon Network will switch it to a time like 1:00 a.m. for example. Then it'll lose ratings, then Cartoon Network will cancelled it.

    No, the 1:00 A.M. slot doesn't happen right away. Here's how the formula goes.
    1) On premiere day, show 3-4 new episodes in succession to keep viewers busy for a while.
    2) Show new episodes every weekend for the next 2-3 months during a choice time slot, usually Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
    3) Christmas special.
    4) The hype wears off. Advertise that the show will now be on every weekday evening.
    5) Ratings wane. Start showing it as a Saturday morning cartoon.
    6) Give it one final chance to rake in some ratings. Host an all-day marathon.
    7) Show comes on once a week on Saturday afternoons.
    People forget about it. Show airs during the wee hours of the morning.
    9) Show is wiped off the face of the planet. By now, the show's original creator has done a spinoff or created another show with similar animation.
    NOTE: This only applies to animated shows. Frankly, they're pretty lucky. Bad sitcoms can skip from step 2 directly to step 9.

    #2 is so true.

    I'll say this- if this show is as bad as Atomic Betty of the Buzz on Maggie, then this is inevitably going to happen. But if the show is good, oh, it'll last longer than you think. I mean, this crap hasn't happened to The Simpsons or Family Guy yet, has it?!

    You people need to have faith. Otherwise we're better off with what's on CN now- and what's on now, just like Nick and Disney, isn't acceptable, even by 1900 standards.

    Just take a stand, dammit!!!This is what my Movement is about- backing up good shows and finding the creators of bad ones and kicking their asses so they never do it again.

    Just a reminder of the obvious- F91

    TRue. This is one weakness, we, as viewers, not just Movementarians, must look out for, as this has doomed many shows to T.V. Hell. Thanks for warning, writer.
    F91- I'll try and get the word out.

    I know something else that is pathetic there is really no reason to hate this show,I seen nothing wrong with this show not one bit. It even gots a little humor thrown into the melting pots. What really is pathetic is how you view this show.

    Class of 3000 in my opinion just lacks the feeling of a cartoon. Little comedy and too much music.   It feels like it should be on MTV or something

    1. The song at the preview is fairly annoying and is giving me a migrane.

    2. Some characters are bugging me. The blone needs to frown once in a while. The world isn't always filled with good things.

    3. I'm not interested into much music unless it invloves rock and so far I don't see anybody playing that music.

    4. The animation isn't exactly my favorite.

    The shows that were already on CN were 13,000 times better than this trash.
