    One good thing about CN is that we don't have to worry about it getting pushed back for a sporting even that's run long. FOX has a lot of sports they do before their animation block on Sundays, like NASCAR and MLB that boots the cartoons back.

    Also bear in mind Fox's TV division is a completely separate entity from their film division, and frankly, I'm sure a lot of this had to do with money and guarantees for time slots.

    If you go over to Jim Hill Media and check out some of the older news on Lucas and Disney you can see that Disney was VERY keen on brining over Star Wars to one of their networks. Disney wanted Star Wars badly as it would have been a great tie-in with their parks. I'm sure WB flashed more cash and was more willing to be flexible with air times on their cable channels than the other studios.
