Well I know one of the highlights for me was Original Joe and TF returning to a broadcast channel, and was just wondering...has anyone heard how well the Original Joe and TF tunes are doing on the HUB?

Yah, I was excited to see the Sunbow Joe cartoon on the HUB too, but now that Renegades is on... I am all about the Renegades now. LOL. Plus, doesn't the Sunbow stuff air at midnight? I'm sure the OG Transformers cartoon is doing well though even at that hour. I love ARAH Joe toys for sure, but even I have to admit the old Transformers cartoon is way more awesome than the Joe one. LOL.

actually, you couldnt be more wrong.

According to ratings, The Hub's Kaboom is THE highest rated network in its time bracket and is outrating networks like Cartoon network, Disney XD and Nicktoons in its time slot. the rebradcast TF and Joe (as well as the 66 Batman) beat out ratings for Phineas & Ferb, Avatar the last Airbender, Drake and Josh, and even Robot Chicken and The Boondocks in the 11:30 Pm - 1Am time slots on Mondays thru Thursdays in its initial airing, and is still doing quite well.

Lets see how it does by the end of 2011. It is way to early to call anything a victory for this network given EVERYONE wanted to see what it was all about, whether they stick around or not has yet to be seen. If 10 million people watched just to wacth TF Prime and di not watch anything else...then how is that a total victory for the nework? Definelty can't say it was My little Pony, Renegades or Sunbow GI JOE was the whole reason for any of it. There is more on that station then just those shows to make it cater to a lot of individuals. Saying it was totally Sunbow GI JOE that made it successful is a considerabley more wrong in that contect then what I said...

You know what would be awesome... If they renewed the OG TF program picking up after the Return of Optimus Prime. Then I'd actually be motivated to watch a TF cartoon.
