    Things can only improve for Cartoon Network, now with Christina Miller at the helm as president. She’ll overhaul everything on the network, go back to the basics and ensure her network also programs for girls, as well as boys. Remember, she’s not Stuart Snyder- she’ll run CN, her way and with reliable staff by her side. Within the next couple of years, she’ll have Cartoon Network competing with Nick and force Disney Channel to program action-adventure cartoons to keep up with its competition. Miller will shape Cartoon Network into what it can be, once again. All the best to her as CN’s president.
