* Any non-educational cartoon aired on AFN Family (excluding ''WesternAnimation/{{Littlest Pet Shop|2012}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'') will only air once every few weeks or even ''once a month''. While most networks that air ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' treat it with lots of love, AFN rarely airs this show.[[note]]Not only that, they only air the first six seasons, and this could be either a good thing or a bad thing for fans of the show.[[/note]] And if you're a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fan in the military, it sucks to be you for this reason. Not only that, their run is '''four years behind''', even though they aired ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]''. However, fans of superhero programs aren't totally screwed, as Thursday nights usually consist of Marvel cartoons and Pokemon. Plus you can expect to see multiple Nickelodeon and Disney Channel cartoons[[note]]And MLP[[/note]] on Friday nights.

*** Another downside to the switch was that, while Cartoon Network now has wider carriage, it was still a higher-tier network on some providers. This means that if CN wasn't in their current package, subscribers would have to pay extra. Plus, whereas Creator/AdultSwim launched their own SVOD app in Canada to allow Canadian fans to legally watch their original programming, even shows that weren't being aired on the Canadian version [[note]]Mostly the live-action shows, but also earlier shows that Corus didn't get the rights to the first time around/[[/note]], Cartoon Network programming couldn't be streamed anywhere in Canada! Perhaps realizing this, Corus would slowly phase Cartoon Network programming back to Teletoon over the next year.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Cassius And Clay'' was a planned female led post-apocalyptic series by Adam Reed for FXX that was intended to be a sister show to the seventh season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}''. After being picked up for a ten episode order, FXX decided to abruptly cancel the show and Season 7 of ''Archer'' ended up airing on FX instead. [[note]]It would move over to FXX the year afterwards.[[/note]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp'' (The U.S. version). The show received a ton of promotion and had a nice cozy timeslot sandwiched between Fox's hardhitter cartoons, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Despite this, the show received poor ratings, got largely negative reviews, was relocated to Fox's graveyard hour (the very timeslot that killed ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'') and even had an episode removed from airing on Sunday due to dubious content ("Math Lab"). The show itself was eventually pulled from Sundays and announced canceled. However, the rest of the series was allowed to air on Saturdays at 12:00 AM (replacing reruns of ''MADtv'' after that show ended due to low ratings and budget cuts) and continued to rerun there until Spring when Creator/ComedyCentral picked up the rights to the show, but Comedy Central aired all but two episodes (the pilot and "High School Confidential"). As of November 2014, Cartoon Network's Creator/AdultSwim Sunday night line-up is airing the show...right in the same timeslot that used to belong to ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' (though ''KOTH'' now comes on at 8:30pm and 9:00pm).

* Reruns of ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' were screwed over thanks in no small part to [[Film/JemAndTheHolograms its film adaptation]] [[BoxOfficeBomb tanking]]; its timeslot was handed over to ''Transformers Prime'', which occupies the slot to this day. The only silver lining is that its 2015 comic book adaptation did well; though it's not surprising considering it was ''much'' more faithful to the source material than the film.

* ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' proved to be a viable counterpart to ''My Little Pony'' and initially ran for a solid 3 seasons, but the fourth season ended up being the last because of its toyline not doing well enough. Contrast Creator/CartoonNetwork using the same excuse for screwing the above-mentioned ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' and ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' versus the franchise this show is based on, and it makes what happened to this show much more understandable, though no less somber for its fans.

* So far, ''Creator/{{Qubo}}'' is NOT treating ''WesternAnimation/SecretMillionairesClub'' very well. First off on December 26, 2017 (the day after Christmas), this show (as well as ThomasEdisonsSecretLab, ''Series/ZooClues'' and ''Series/AnimalScience'') premiered on the channel with NO advertising whatsoever! Then to rub salt on the wounds, after 3 months, not only on the daytime rotation but on the channel as a whole, the show got moved to 12AM (midnight), A.K.A. where practically NOBODY is awake at the time.
