* 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, much like what happened to Creator/{{Teletoon}}, Corus had since launched numerous networks that each catered to a specific portion of YTV's general audience. Their morning preschool block was abandoned in favor of Creator/TreehouseTV and 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, thus leaving YTV to focus solely on the 6-12 audience.

** For a brief period, YTV became the second-window network for sitcoms acquired by [[Creator/GlobalTelevisionNetwork Global TV]]. This is despite Corus also owning Creator/ShowcaseTelevision, which has also aired sitcoms and acquired programs from American broadcast networks. It can be interpreted that [[{{Irony}} Corus is attempting to bring in the same adult audiences back to YTV that they themselves drove out]], but these efforts were dropped just as quickly as they begin.

** Perhaps due to it being a Creator/{{Nelvana}}-produced series, ''WesternAnimation/{{Mysticons}}'' has been a minor aversion to this trope so far. Just as Nickelodeon did, Mysticons premiered in a five-day, week-long event, and also airs new episodes on Sundays. ''Unlike'' Nickelodeon, YTV airs reruns on Saturday mornings, as well as weekdays, and the show even had premiere events on Teletoon's English and French channels, with the latter channel also hosting a five-day premiere.
** On the flip side, ''WesternAnimation/RegalAcademy'' plays it straight, with new episodes being aired on ''Saturdays at 6am''.

* 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.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: The [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwing over]] of ''Bionix'' is blamed for the total absence of mature Main/{{Anime}} series on Canadian specialty channels.
