* NetworkDecay: Much like Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, YTV has been accused of pandering to its target audience of kids at the expense of older viewers. To be fair, their morning preschool block was abandoned in favor of the Creator/NickJr block on Nickelodeon Canada, the Canadian version of Creator/{{CMT}} shifted towards family-oriented sitcoms and reality shows (a direct case of its own decay), and ABC Spark (the Canadian version of [[Creator/ABCFamily Freeform]]) is aimed at the older crowd that YTV used to target in the evenings, leaving them to focus solely on the 6-12 audience.

* GirlShowGhetto: If it's a cartoon aimed at girls, you can expect this kind of treatment. ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' was mostly aired on Sunday mornings before it was moved to Nick Canada.

** After Creator/CorusEntertainment gained complete ownership of Creator/{{Teletoon}}, many shows airing on YTV moved to the former network.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Ignoring the obvious comparisons with Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, Creator/DisneyXD shares a lot in common with YTV. Most of the shows on both networks have the same target audience of boys, whereas the mothership Nickelodeon channel airs shows that appeal to kids, tweens, and even adults. In YTV's case, this is mostly due to NetworkDecay.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Ignoring DorkAge: [[BrokenBase Depending on who you ask]], YTV has been in one since 2010. On top of all the obvious comparisons issues associated with Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, Creator/DisneyXD shares a lot in common with YTV. Most Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s own Dork Age, most of the shows on both networks have the same target audience of boys, whereas the mothership Nickelodeon channel airs shows that appeal to kids, tweens, and even adults. In YTV's case, output is seen as generic, derivative of other shows, or outright juvenile to older viewers. Even the more [[Series/HowToBeIndie tolerable]] [[WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel shows]] weren't as popular as the more despised shows.

this is kind of treatment. ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' was mostly due aired on Sunday mornings before it was moved to NetworkDecay.Nick Canada.
