As Dreamers Do Part Deux

Tiffany turned 21 in early February.
Walt, Jr. and Candice Bergen both turn 58 later this year.
Trey will be 25 in June.
Will trey go to work for the family busissen. I like the idea of Trey working the family firm for a few years before droping out to run for senate. I also like the idea of him running for president in 2016 or 2020. He will be 37 in 2016 and 41 in 2020. That would make him the youngest president on record. That would also be ironic since otl the winner of the 2016 and 2020 elcetions broke the record for oldest president
 
Amazing job @OldNavy1988! Coming up will be Scooby-Doo 2 (Touchstone), Mean Girls (Paramount), Van Helsing (Universal), Shrek 2 (Universal/DreamWorks) and Tron 2.0 (Walt Disney/Legendary Pictures). But I'll have Blue Beetle to open August 13, 2004 (in OTL, was Alien vs. Predator's release date).
Given by Roland Emmerich's track records and had a longstanding relationship at Carolco/Warners, The Day After Tomorrow looks to be the next WB hit.
 
What’s The sate of British television at the moment?
I am trying to get this British show called "The Story of Tracy Beaker" on American TV, preferably SBC's Saturday morning block.

I've tried watching Tracy Beaker but I don't understand the appel
Well, the show is about Tracy, a girl in a care home, although she gets fostered by a woman named Cam, who eventually adopts her in the last episode of the show.

It's quite iconic and popular in the UK, it's pretty funny and good, especially in the 4th and 5th series(seasons to us here in America).

I never understood how CBBC peaked in the 90s and tried to make it stick into 2000s and yet they don't repeat the stuff that made them good

This is good, I know it might not be every American's cup of tea, but I'm sure some people would appreciate it, especially once we got to Tracy Beaker Returns and The Dumping Ground.

They actually held up really well, might not be your cup of tea, but CBBC is surprisingly still holding up today compared to Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel here Stateside...

Which is why I'm confused about the BBC's decision to move CBBC online only.

I guess your right
 
Well, the whole show is on YouTube:

And I would best prefer that you not Americanize it........

And how is the Odyssey Network doing as of 2004?
Odyssey is struggling ratingswise. Microsoft and Saban have been fighting behind the scenes over the network's format for about five years now.

EDIT: Jetix in case anyone's wondering, is owned by the Henson company and was originally planned to be named the Animation Network. Right now, it's the Nickelodeon equivalent of Boomerang.

I'm pretty sure you forgot Noggin (A sister channel to Nickelodeon IOTL), which I'm sure is owned by Henson ITTL.
 
Odyssey is struggling ratingswise. Microsoft and Saban have been fighting behind the scenes over the network's format for about five years now.
So, it's basically OTL Fox Family all over again, except with bad ratings?

If so, may I suggest the following?:
  • Relaunch the channel as a American version of Animax.
  • Sell Sony's stake to either Saban, TimeWarner or Turner.
  • Have it completely rebooted as a new kids channel available in more homes, maybe named either Pagoda(based off a Saban project from a TL I'm working on myself) or Kabillion
EDIT: Jetix in case anyone's wondering, is owned by the Henson company and was originally planned to be named the Animation Network. Right now, it's the Nickelodeon equivalent of Boomerang.
Oh. Is the channel pulling in good ratings?

Is Nexus still a thing? If so, I could see Nexus moved to XYZ to get much higher ratings.
