Another person swore, “it was a ritual to see this column to spot times or repeat my favorite show.”

One individual revealed: β€œIt brought back memories for me. There was a time when TNT and the cartoon networks had to share time. TNT from 21:00 to 6:00 and the rest for CN. He took me down memory lane.
