In the past decade, Cartoon Network has largely been surviving – very well I might add – by mixing cartoons aimed at younger audiences, and those that cater to both younger viewers and adults (not including Adult Swim). Adventure Time and Regular Show, for example, have huge followings in the young-adult and adult demographic. Others, like the horrible Uncle Grandpa, dominate ratings for 6-year-olds as their attempts at catering to older viewers fall flat due to heavily recycled ideas. Steven Universe is the most recent addition to the channel’s weekly line-up, and it comes with a lot of hype as the first series headed by a female creator.
