Dude, What Would Happen is an American live-action reality series that aired on Cartoon Network originally as part of its CN Real block which aired a line of live-action reality shows promoted in the summer season of 2009. It's ages were from 9-17. The show premiered on August 19, 2009, preceded by another CN Real series Bobb'e Says. The show was hosted by three male teenagers (C.J. Manigo, Jackson Rogow, and Ali Sepasyar) who wondered what would happen if some wild event, scheme or experiment were to occur. The three teens attempt to create the event themselves and consult experts ("The Lab Dudes") when needed.
The series was universally panned by several Cartoon Network viewers for its place in the network and the concepts used in the series, however the series went on to have four seasons aired throughout an span of two years, in which the series eventually ended on September 2011, as the series was not announced for a renewal by Cartoon Network.
Dude, What Would Happen was one of only two CN Real shows (the other being Destroy Build Destroy) to have been renewed for additional seasons, as the other CN Real shows had already been cancelled earlier most likely due to low ratings.
In February 2011, Vincent Cariati renewed his contract to serve an additional four seasons as the series' showrunner, co-creator and co-executive producer. The show had four seasons aired, but was not announced as a returning series, automatically cancelling the series altogether.
