    The Hub should grab Young Justice and Green Lantern if they are indeed cancelled by Cartoon Network, they could have one of the best morning lineups in a long time.

  • detroit_fan

    I love the old shows that The HUB airs like Family Ties, ALF, and others.

  • Kenny

    Why don’t you guys pick up Tron: Uprising and Young Justice? Then I’ll be yours forever.

    Other than that, love Dan Vs. and reruns of Batman, Superman, and Animaniacs. And occasionally ALF.

  • Fred

    I love Pound Puppies. I can’t wait for season 3!

  • Ke-One

    See if you guys can pickup Young Justice, since CN like to cancel great shows.
