Good news for fans of former DC Universe programs that were dumped onto HBO Max — those programs seem to be holding up well against the competition. During today’s DC FanDome event, WB announced both Doom Patrol and Titans have been given fourth season renewals. The premise for Doom Patrol
Given enough time, a lot can change about the world. The original Animaniacs premiered at a time when millions of children turned on the same TV channels and sat down at the same designated times every weekday — even sitting through ads (can you imagine). In those days you needed
