There's certainly worse shows on that network, and this is the one people are getting offended by?
Though I wonder if Hasbro/Hub bothered to review it first? They could've just snagged a cheap property. Or were hoping for controversy... the thing with bronies is, they usually just watch the show on Youtube or torrent it. Hasbro barely markets merch to them so MLP isn't doing as well as it could. TF Prime was their big thing with the movie's writers heading it but MLP grew bigger, and Hasbro didn't want that. The network barely floats and it's funny they have to air cartoons which have tie-in toy lines being made by competing companies, but even if you put every Hasbro show on there, you'd not come close to filling a day's schedule and most of the people who want to watch their older shows would just buy them on DVD anyway.
