Tower Prep is a failure. Cartoon Network’s newest live-action series has been a complete ratings flop, despite relentless advertising campaigns that included an iPod Touch giveaway. I don’t know what Cartoon Network is looking for, but this show clearly does not have it. Last night, I watched an episode of Tower Prep, and while I was far from impressed, I have to admit it was creative, fun, and perfectly watchable. But the main lasting impression I got from watching Tower Prep was that the people in charge, both the creator and the executives, were fish-out-of-water. They certainly wanted it to succeed, and they wanted it to be good too. They just didn’t know what they were doing.

Hello, I’m Kieran Pertnav, the newest guest writer here on the Scratch Pad. I believe that the renewal and cancellation of shows are one of the most intense parts of television, and also one of the most interesting. Today, I’m going to take a look at several of Cartoon Network’s current shows, and have a guess as to whether they’ll be renewed or canceled.
