Creator Pete Browngardt’s Uncle Grandpa, about a magical elder who travels the world finding unusual solutions to everyday situations, has regularly led its time slot in targeted kids demos since its September 2 premiere. Steven Universe, from Rebecca Sugar, Cartoon Network’s first solo female show creator, drew the network’s best premiere of 2013 on November 4. It centers on the ultimate “little brother” to a team of magical guardians of humanity.
