Andrew - When LoT came out, I had posited that DCTV was on the verge of a (possible) break though series - DC Showcase Presents. It could rotate features for, say, a month arc at a time, or however short a span would be effective for accurate ratings. So for example, it might be a month of LoT, followed by a month of Doom Patrol, then Hawkman and Hawkgirl, the Atom, Power Girl, Constantine, and then another round of LoT if it registered high enough the first round. That ought to point to what is popular with the viewers to recommend the next feature.

There are a few anthology shows out there, so it's not unheard of. And we could get a variety - enough so that A) storylines would be done pretty quickly, and B) we'd get a good idea of what's out there. Shucks, we might even get a round or two of the Justice League! (Why not? We've seen enough JLAers to make good episodes - Superman, the Atom, Batwoman, Firestorm, Flash, Green Arrow, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, J'onn J'onzz, etc.)

Right now, nothing is happening new for most TV; but that means that new ideas have a good chance, since this is an opportunity to replace the old scheduled stuff. Not that that could EVER happen, but a  man can dream...

Agreed 100%, Eric.

An hour-long show with an A and B feature, rotating between characters, would be a pretty wild experiment--and if done right, it would be a hit. It would also free up characters who are locked into being part of some other hero's team. Maybe let Vibe have a three episode arc of his own. Let Thunder or Lightning do their own thing apart from their dad.

Lots of possibilities.

I would also like to see them address one of the elephants in the room:

WHY HASN'T WONDER WOMAN EVEN BEEN MENTIONED IN ANY OF THESE SHOWS?

Wonder Woman was explicitly mentioned by Kate in the second episode of BATWOMAN, and Themiscyra was seen in LEGENDS.

Michael is absolutely right.

Let's go the fun step; make DC Showcase Presents animated every third or fourth episode. Not only were the shorts fun on the DC animated on Saturday morning, but I think there's enough hugh and cry for another run at Young Justice.

Ah, okay. I had missed those, so that's my bad.
Since there's a TV and movie version of Superman existing at about the same time, we can have a TV Wonder Woman then.
Young Justice is on DC Universe, isn't it? They've been back in production for a couple of years now. Unless you mean a version more explicitly based on Peter David and Todd Nauck's series.

Nope. I didn't even know they were back. Hopefully as good as the series was the first time around.
