** The title hit this again in the mid-'00s after the disaster of his unmasking in ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' and the universally-reviled ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' storyline as new writers were brought in who kept trying to replace Spidey's supporting cast and rogues gallery by creating their own set of third string villains and characters. It hit its own nadir when they had the Lizard cross the MoralEventHorizon and later undid the Sacred Cow that was "Kraven's Last Hunt". Enter Dan Slott, who took over the title as the sole writer and generally made the series ''enjoyable'' again, though it's something controversial concerning ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan''.

***After several years of being consigned to just the newspaper comic strip, Peter and MJ's marriage was brought back to the forefront for the summer of 2015 during the ''Secret Wars'' event, with Dan Slott penning a five issue story called ''Renew Your Vows'', focusing on an alternate version of Peter and MJ raising a young daughter called Annie and taking on a dictator called The Regent. The series proved very popular and a year later it was given it's own ongoing title where the Parker family all fight crime together as a superhero unit not unlike TheIncredibles.

* While ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'', ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', ''WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/BillyDilleysSuperDuperSubterraneanSummer'', and ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'' got Disney Channel's animation department back in shape, the network's live action department had been struggling, as many of their shows since the debut of ''Series/HannahMontana'' in 2006 were seen as mediocre at best, mainly abiding to the GirlShowGhetto, with the few exceptions being ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'', ''Series/LabRats'', and ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld''. Many of their least-liked series, like ''Series/CrashAndBernstein'' and ''Series/BestFriendsWhenever'' (both of which starred Landry Bender), were cancelled very quickly. In 2017, the network released ''Series/AndiMack'', a show with DarkerAndEdgier themes and no laugh track, which won over many fans. They also announced [[Series/RavensHome a new spinoff]] for ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'', a ''Disney/BigHero6'' series, a ''Bug Juice'' reboot, and a ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' reboot. These improvements, along with Nickelodeon's, stick out against Cartoon Network's, which some believe has [[AdoredByTheNetwork/TeenTitansGo entered another]] DorkAge.

* It seems that ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is taking this direction, since after the [[SeasonalRot much reviled Season 7]]: Peter's Jerkassery was toned down, Brian is no longer the MarySue AuthorAvatar everybody was sick of, Meg and Chris are getting more screentime, and the Meg bashing is much, much less blatant, [[CharacterRerailment Stewie starts to show glimpses of his old characterization]], the newer chapters have better storylines and less flashbacks and pop culture references (which, by the way, are more recent and easier to get than the obscure 70-80s references that nobody recognized), the BlackComedy is less prominent, etc. There are even a few dramatic and serious moments once in a while.

Parallel to this, Creator/AdultSwim followed suit after their resurrection of Creator/{{Toonami}}, while ''Series/TheEricAndreShow'' has redeemed its live action programming among some of its fanbase due to being one of the few unambiguously live action shows produced by the network, and its strange, absurdist tone fitting the rest of the networks output. The eventual status of the controversial ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' as AdoredByTheNetwork has been seen as a damping force against the process of recovery, however.
** As of August 2017 the crowd is now in the process of being won back ''again''. The network has lately been once again accused of being in a DorkAge thanks to the aforementioned constant airing of ''Teen Titans Go'', and lack of quality programming, which have caused many long-time fans of the channel to abandon it. But in August 2017, two things happened that have caused some fans to take a second look: daytime reruns of the original ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' for the first time in nearly a decade, and the debut of new series ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'', which was surprisingly well-received.

*** The Alola arc likewise had a hard time gaining fans, due to its DenserAndWackier nature (the fact that the games it was based on were actually DarkerAndEdgier compared to their predecessors didn't help), the redesigns of the characters, and the school setting. But then came the announcement that Misty and Brock would be making a guest reappearance. . .
