Right now, I think that Cartoon Network is going through another dork age, due to the fact that over half the channel's time slots are filled in with reruns of Teen Titans Go!, and the fact that they regularly cancel and/or ignore far better shows such as Adventure Time, Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball, Steven Universe, and Sonic Boom, at the very least, relegating them to Boomerang, its sister channel.

It's best to wait and see how the situation evolves, and how viewers react (or how long they continue having the current reaction). Since CN has been fairly inconsistent in regards of what they want to do, it's too easy to declare any slump as a Dork Age. If the situation continues for the following months (or even the rest of the year), then the article could make a mention of it.

I think that the Nickelodeon example should be updated, considering that since 2015, Nickelodeon's quality has been improving with the successes of The Sponge Bob Movie Sponge Out Of Water, Harvey Beaks, and The Loud House. The humor and storytelling of Sanjay and Craig has also improved, and Breadwinners has been relegated to Nicktoons Network and not been picked up for a third season.
