On 13 Oct. 2012, thousands of DC Nation fans were shocked to see that Cartoon Network abruptly pulled DC Nation's television shows from the air without so much as a warning. After several hours of tweeting, Facebook messaging, and direct messaging Cartoon Network for an explanation, fans found out via Twitter that Cartoon Network would begin airing DC Nation shows again in January after yet another hiatus.
Well, needless to say, we are not happy. Not only has Cartoon Network taken our favorite shows off the air, but it has also shown that its members don't care about the well-being of the audience. Not once today has Cartoon Network issued an apology to the thousands of fans that have been hurt by this event. Cartoon Network also withheld this information from the content creators over at DC Nation.
Through this petition, we kindly ask that Cartoon Network please take our opinions into consideration. Without an audience, Cartoon Network would not have been able to remain on the air for as long as it has. We'd like them to actually show appreciation and consideration for the fans and content creators while also cancelling the hiatus and putting our favorite DC Nation shows back on the air before next year.
Edit: I just wanted to thank you all so much for the response this petition has seen in such a short amount of time. Please continue to spread the word to all your friends so that we can keep this momentum going.
Let's show Cartoon Network that fans are more than just numbers for ratings. We are people with feelings who truly love DC Nation shows, people who have created bonds with others because of these shows. Without fans, Cartoon Network simply wouldn't exist!
Thank you all again for taking the time to sign this and spread the word. It means a lot to me. You all rock!
