* PeripheryHatedom: The channel's NetworkDecay has granted it a large hatedom among males, and females who were born before 1989 out of frustration for appealing exclusively to tween girls and not releasing their classics onto DVD or Netflix. According to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, the hatedom has even gone as far as to declare the channel InNameOnly.

** Occasionally, an IdolSinger that is being heavily promoted by Disney Channel will cover a classic song from the DisneyAnimatedCanon, which are prone to be stuck in peoples' heads for years. Most of these songs (such as [=Jump5's=] SoBadItsGood cover of "Beauty and the Beast"), however, are bubblegum pop covers that play frequently on Radio/RadioDisney, and are panned by critics and older audiences.

Added DiffLines:

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: The sitcoms had this very bad since the debut of ''Series/HannahMontana''. Several {{Family Unfriendly Aesop}}s, focus on stardom, having the protagonist always be a 16-year-old GirlyGirl and HormoneAddledTeenager, increasingly unrealistic settings, and trying to be relevant to ongoing teen cultures has pretty much driven away everyone who wasn't a female born between 1989 and 2001.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: You'd probably be shocked to learn that ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'' was the real reason for Disney Channel's introduction to the GirlShowGhetto trope which the channel fully embraced when ''Series/HannahMontana'' and ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' aired and brought it to NetworkDecay.

* {{Misblamed}}: Disney purists, fans of the older shows, and MoralGuardians point the blame at ''Series/HannahMontana'' and ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' for Disney Channel's serve NetworkDecay from a family-oriented channel to a teen-girls only gossip club that overpromotes singers and encourages GroupieBrigade and high-pitched {{Squee}} towards them. ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'' [[FranchiseOriginalSin actually started this]], but was still a SliceOfLife series, and was tolerated by families.

* Recently, reruns of ''Series/DogWithABlog'' were pulled all together, to the relief of many. ''Series/AustinAndAlly'' and ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' air reruns at midnight only, while ''Series/LivAndMaddie'' airs reruns at awkward timeslots like at 10 PM and 5 AM. ''Series/BestFriendsWhenever'' and ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'' air reruns at midnight on weekends only, indicating that if ratings continue to tank, Disney Channel will pull them completely, however ''Series/{{Jessie}}'' doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, as long as ''Series/BunkD'' is still around.

** On July 2nd, 2017, Disney Channel's animation block is gone but the only animated shows on Disney Channel are Pat the Dog, Elena of Avalor, Tangled: The Series, and the Canadian-acquired Hotel Translyvania: The Series. Still most of Disney Channel's are more aimed towards female protagonists.

** Likewise with the new stuff. ''AndiMack'' was something of a feeler and its' ratings and critical success means there'll be more like it...eventually...but not before more HighConcept wackiness that was already in the pipeline makes it to air.

** Fortunately, Disney Channel is slowly RevisitingTheRoots by adding in more animation (including those based on the Disney Animated Canon), better reviewed sitcoms, a sequel series for ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'', and airing reruns of their more popular shows while cancelling the critically panned ones[[note]]though those with a more cynical look state that the only reason Disney Channel is doing well is because Creator/CartoonNetwork had entered NetworkDecay with endless reruns of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''[[/note]]. It hasn't quite broken out of the GirlShowGhetto, but it looks to be heading that way.
