* After a particularly disastrous 2014, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} seemed to be doing all it can to win back its fans in 2015 (at least in their animation department). ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'' managed to win back [=SpongeBob=] fans, thanks to having [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight Stephen Hillenburg]] back on board (as well as the news that he's returning to the show itself), featuring humor on par with that of the first 3 seasons and [[CharacterRerailment de-flanderizing the characters]]. Being a box office hit also helps. Then, C.H. Greenblatt's ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'' was praised for being more down to earth, having more wholesome humor, and not rehashing the same [[HeterosexualLifePartners "bromance"]] theme of [[WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum other]] [[WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig recent]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}} Nicktoons]]. And finally, the network announced they were working to reboot some of their old series. This includes recruiting Creator/CraigBartlett to finally produce something classic Nick fans have been wanting for over a decade: ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold The Jungle Movie''. However, given the mixed-to-negative reception of ''WesternAnimation/PigGoatBananaCricket'' and pulling most of their premieres due to rapidly declining ratings, it's arguable how well their efforts are working financially.
** Things seem to be further improving for Nick in 2016 with them picking up the dub to ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'', the near-unanimous praise of ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'', and shelving ''Breadwinners'' to {{Nicktoons}} without renewing it for a third season. These improvements especially stick out against main rival Cartoon Network, who has so far in 2016 only released the ''[[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 Powerpuff Girls]]'' [[BaseBreaker reboot]] and ''{{WesternAnimation/Bunnicula}}''.

* Wrestling/JayLethal's second run with the Wrestling/RingOfHonor Television Title won back the crowd who had been disinterested in the belt ever since Matt Taven, who was viewed as a CreatorsPet and a ReplacementScrappy in the House Of Truth to Wrestling/RoderickStrong, had won it off the ever popular Adam Cole.

* Due to declining sales from ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' titles, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' was originally going to be the final game in the series if the game didn't reach 250,000 sales. Fortunately, ''Awakening'' managed to save the series from cancellation with sales close to, if not surpassing, ''one million'' copies worldwide. And a lot of them were from Nintendo's E-Shop downloads! With the fact that another game, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', is getting released, it seems like the franchise is not going away any time soon.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUXprMizqIs very first preview]] for ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' reboot was met with mixed to negative reactions online for feeling very cliche out of context from the episode and having somewhat stilted animation, but the following clips shown on the {{Creator/Cartoon Network}} Youtube channel were met with much more positive reactions as time went on. Once the show itself aired, many comments seem to be that while it hasn't lived up to the original show, it is far from terrible and manages to be at least a decent one that tries to have its own identity, whether it will fully live up has yet to be seen... That is until ''more'' episodes aired and the shows constant use of WereStillRelevantDammit in several areas [[HereWeGoAgain turned people off of the show all over again]].
