I find this quite interresting. The wb's last known url is still up and running: http://thewb.warnerbros.com/web/index.jsp
. I know that it takes time to take down a site and that the schedule is automatically generated but it is odd that the kids wb line up is still listed. This is indded the current line up for kids wb. But the actual kicker is that the domain and location of the cw actually belongs to Warner Bros.

From Network Solutions WHOIS Search Results. Could this be the IT at the WB being behind from the launch of the new www.cwtv.com
or could this be something more? Everyday the cw keeps adding more content but it make me wonder what there plan is.
I honestly forgot that it was the cw since there was no promos for any cw primetime shows but when the wb was up and running they would air wb primetime promos every half hour. In fact outside of station ID's there was no mention of the cw at all. In fact with the execption of a few new shows kids wb remains pretty much in tact. So in some sort of stange way a piece of the wb television network still lives on though the Saturday Moroning cartoons.
