    Re: Fixin' the disney channel

    What Disney primarly sees:
    Disney Channel: tweens, slighty to girls
    DisneyXD: more attention to boys
    Disney Junior: Preschoolers
    ABC Family: Teens
    ABC: Adults
    Soapnet(depending where it is located, as it may or may not still be on the air): Women
    ESPN channels: Men
    The quality of a show is either based on two differents things: Entertaining/Culture. While many of the shows mention in the thread beforehand, may of been entertaining, they were made with that era's culture in mind. For instance (and no it is NOT an analogy for decreasing quality for shows, the example is only for comparing different types of shows), Leave It To Beaver: the nice, heartwarming, slighty cheesy 1950s show contrasts 2000s Malcolm in the Middle: not very heartwarming (there was some in the show, but done with odd examples), crude, but funny In other words, the shows targeted people in different times. Basically, the network's current viewpoint on their shows is likely and ironically "If it is not broken, don't fix it". Meaning it the current audience likes it why bothering change it?

    Western(Cowboys)media is a semi-dead trend. Yes, there is life in it, but I don't think the current kids are interested in it. Period. No offence.

    Based, on current standards, Disney Channel will likely not(or rarely) enter anything PG-13/14(13 for film, 14 for tv). While this does make this family-friendly, Disney needs to be realistic in my opinion, like there is no such thing as a G-rated high school. I do say that if they are going to do multi-camera sitcoms, get rid of the laugh track. The track causes shows becomes a You need to laugh at this moment in show. And yes, they could improve in show concepts to some degree.

    Re: Fixin' the disney channel

    I remember growing up watching reruns of "The Wonderful World of Disney" every Sunday evening and they were great. I also remember Vault Disney late at night on the Disney Channel. If they did try to bring back the old Disney Channel would enough people watch it to keep it alive? Today's culture seems to be different from my generation, they value different things and have different tastes. There seems to be a lot more emphasis on trends, hype, and commercialism overall nowadays (not just Disney) and that's what kids are being exposed to and are growing up with. I also occasionally watch ABC Family and some of the things they show would have been targeted to adults back in the day.

    I often wonder: when children go to Disneyland do they know that all the characters they're playing with and taking pictures with used to be on t.v? Do they know who Mickey Mouse really is? The Disney Channel used to be unique, but now it just seems like an over-hyped copy of Nickelodeon. The Disney Channel could develop better programming and it could be profitable, but the profits might not be as large as they want them to be so they won't change as long as people keep playing into their marketing strategies. I wish things were different and we could go back to the old Disney.
