Not necessarily. You could say much the same about "Animaniacs".
Similar time slot problem (but with the advantage of weekday broadcasts)
and a lot of humor that little kids won't understand. And to its
disadvantage, the Fox network still has less coverage than ABC, CBS, and
NBC do. Yet there are 69 A episodes which have been on Fox for years.

That's true. And who says DIC can't pitch the show to another network
(including a cable network), or go to syndication? Just imagine:
something brand new on USA's "Cartoon Express". And they could use this
to build a whole line-up of new shows. A number of prime time shows did
better in syndication than on the network, and this could be another
program to do the same (except it's not prime time, of course).
