Cookie Jar TV is a three-hour children's programming block on CBS. It launched on September 16, 2006 as KOL Secret Slumber Party, re-branded as KEWLopolis on September 15, 2007 and again as Cookie Jar TV on September 19, 2009. The block replaced Nick Jr. on CBS/Nick on CBS, which was produced by Viacom's Nickelodeon before CBS and Viacom became two separate companies, and CBS's former children's blocks, CBS Kids, CBS Kidz and CBS Kidshow. The block is owned and programmed by DHX Media (the successor to block creator DIC Entertainment and Cookie Jar Entertainment). As KEWLopolis, the block was a tie-in with a monthly teen magazine, KEWL, which was established in part by DiC in May 2007.
All programming in the block is in compliance with federal "E/I" requirements as mandated by the Federal Communications Commission. Though the block is intended to air on Saturday mornings, like its predecessors, some CBS affiliates choose to tape-delay 30 minutes to an hour of the block to air at a different weekend timeslot (usually on Sunday mornings).
DIC partnership 
After the announcement of the CBS/DIC partnership, the latter announced programming block was originally going to be called CBS's Secret Saturday Morning Slumber Party (or CBS’s Saturday Morning Secret Slumber Party), but was later renamed KOL Secret Slumber Party on CBS after DIC, who produced all of the children's programming for the block, partnered with KOL, the children's area of AOL, which co-produced programming with DIC. AOL managed the programming block's website, and produced public service announcements which aired both on television and online This alliance was what led to the name change for this block, and also because some of the programs were airing on Sundays (depending on the market).
In mid-2007, KOL withdrew sponsorship of the block. Afterwards, CBS and DIC announced a new partnership with American Greetings Corporation to produce the new KEWLopolis, a cartoon block aiming at young female children.
Cookie Jar Group 
On July 23, 2008, DIC was acquired by the Cookie Jar Group. On February 24, 2009, it was announced that CBS renewed its contract with Cookie Jar for another three seasons, through 2012. While KEWLopolis was willing to carry Cake and Horseland over from KOL Secret Slumber Party, Cookie Jar TV removed all KEWLopolis programming upon its re-branding on September 19, 2009.
Although the contract was to have expired at the end of the 2011–12 season, Cookie Jar TV remains on CBS's fall 2012 schedule. This is because Cookie Jar was moved to its permanent home, DHX Media on October 22, 2012, and neither Cookie Jar nor DHX Media has negotiated a new contract with CBS. It is unknown what will become of both Cookie Jar's and CBS's children's programming decisions over the air after the 2012–13 television season concludes.
