Reasons why the cross over between TTG and YJ might be a GOOD thing
Look, I understand that virtually almost everyone on Tumblr doesn’t like Teen Titans Go, especially if you were a big Young Justice fan like myself. However, before we go around blindly accusing the network of being stupid, we have to consider a few things. One, CN is a children’s network. It always has, and it will be. They probably pulled YJ because it was getting a bit too mature for their intended audience. Yes, an overwhelming amount of teens/young adults were the pull for their ratings, but that wasn’t the type of viewership they were greedy for so they swapped it for something more kid-friendly. They didn’t make TTG for you, they made it for their original audience.
Putting that aside, I understand that some think of this crossover as a slap to the face. Okay CN, go ahead and rub salt in the wound by showing our characters in a cartoon we hate instead of giving them another season. Rather than looking at this as a pessimist, let’s shed an optimist’s light on it! Consider this our only chance to show that it’s YJ that can get the real ratings and that fans are still as passionate about it as ever. If you have a TV, I strongly encourage you to at least turn it on to the channel when the special airs. You can mute it, you can throw a blanket over your TV, you don’t even have to watch it, but the view helps. Who knows, if we’re lucky, they’ll either bring YJ back
(which I doubt in favor of the other option) or maybe they’ll bring the series onto Adult Swim and air it on Saturdays with the Toonami lineup (more likely and hoping for).
Please don’t treat this situation like it’s a waste of time. This is probably our only opportunity to truly show how much we want this show back, and I’d hate for everyone’s negativity towards the new Teen Titans to hinder that. As far as we know it’s just 1 time. You can swallow an 11-minute episode. Besides, it’s about YJ criticizing the Titans for not being serious enough. Who wouldn’t love to see them kick their butts and show who the better group is?
