This is Cartoon Network?

I remember an old advertisement on Cartoon Network stating that they were the animation network that will only show cartoons 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever.... until the end of time. Obviously time ended back in November 2005 with the airing of "The Goonies".

Here's the news from Variety:
Net taps Naito as veep longform development

Major changes are in store for Cartoon Network, which will step
outside its charter for the first time and into live-action
programming. Cabler has opened its doors to the unanimated world as
part of a larger development department expansion that includes
select live-action theatrical movie buys and the creation of a
longform unit.

Cartoon Network now has its own category. Chronicling its death is going to be a fulltime job.

Again, Adult Swim people, if anyone asks, tell them the "Saved by the Bell" gambit is your way of protesting this new initiative.
