Bar the first reply, nobody else mentioned ponies yet? Heck, I just watched every episode (yes, I was walked in on) and typed up my opinion on it.
My little pony is definitely more popular than it should be.
the annoying orange and johny test aswell...
I honestly don't see how the last two are still on TV...
I really haven't watched any of the newer popular shows on Nick, CN, or Disney, but I have to say any cartoon where the main characters are much much dumber than a box of rocks. It's not funny, (at least not much to me) and what the heck does that teach kids? Give us one stupid character, not the whole cast.
Speaking of which, I've been looking at all of this from an adult/teenager perspective and not a kids' perspective. Which perspective should we use to view these shows?
It's an anime, but one that comes to mind for me is Axis Powers Hetalia. My friend is absolutely obsessed with that show, and she eventually convinced me to watch it. I've seen every episode of it, and I don't see what's so great about it. Granted, it's not horrible, but it's very overrated.
Even though I agree, it gives off a really skewed interpretation of the world wars. I mean, sure it's for comedy but I think some people are actually stupid enough to believe that it's an accurate representation of those nations.
oh it's a love/hate romance. 'cause i could watch her dance, if i've got my boots.

I have another thought that I think most people will disagree with, but I don't care.
A lot of people seem to put the 90's cartoons on a pedestal, but I don't think they're that great. Sure, there was good stuff back then, but the way people talk about them, you'd think they were masterpieces on the same level of greatness as the classic Disney and Looney Tunes cartoons and, of course, vastly superior to all modern cartoons in every way possible. So, yeah. In a way, I do think 90's cartoons are kind of overrated.
Another overrated Japanese installment would be the Dragon Ball series. Nostalgic? Yes, it's one of the many thing that dragged me into Japanese media. Good? No, the plot's awful and repetitive while the characters and humor are bland. Then the fans come at you or it might have just been that one guy in that chatroom I used to go to (got tired of that one guy typing that he was shoving his erection into various openings of my body). That guy aside, they're still milking it, even after it originally ended. The remastered HD retelling dubbed "Kai" on its anniversary was fine but the many spin-off movies and games that are still being produced…

They both use adult humor.
For anime, I can't get into Lucky Star at all. My friend loves the show, and we've watched it a couple of times at her place, but I was really bored throughout it all. I don't know why. I don't think it has anything to do with it being a Slice of Life. It probably has to do with the life of an otaku, and I don't consider myself an otaku. Though the theme song and dance is just sooooo catchy...
Someone mentioned Johnny Test. Yeah, I don't know why the show's still on. I liked its first season when it was on Kids WB, I thought it was great. Then it just got bland over time (though it's Pokémon parody was funny the first time).

I'll be the party pooper and say all cartoons. The only two I like, The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, I can understand. But all others? It'll forever be a mystery to me as to why they're so popular.
