and your not sick of all the Hana Montana stuff? Go look at youtube lots of people complaining there.
No, I'm not. And do you want to know why? Because I don't watch The Disney Channel all day, every day. I enjoy three shows: Sonney With a Chance, Phineas and Ferb, and Wizards of Waverly Place. I set my DVR to record new episode of all three, and I fast forward through the commercials. All of the "Hannah Montana stuff" doesn't bother me because unlike you, I don't watch it all the time.

pointed out, nobody is forcing you to watch it if you don't like it.Chernabog_Rocks
Honestly all the Disney Channel needs is just a better schedule, take out all those constant repeats in each day, shuffle in some new stuff, some old vintage stuff and you can still cater to the tweens and other fans as well.
It would be wonderful if Disney could find that kind of a balance in their scheduling. I think historically, channels aimed at children have always had lots and lots of reruns to account for the fact that kids are busy. Some kids have lots of extracurricular activities after school and simply aren't home to see Hannah Montana or The Suite Life when they are on at 4:00 and 5:00, for example. So playing both shows again at 8:00 and 9:00 or whenever they actually do gives those kids the opportunity to enjoy the shows they couldn't see earlier. For that reason, I don't think we will ever see Disney Channel return to a schedule that appeals to multiple age groups.
I think that this is sad because I don't think Disney sees the potential for kids to fall in love with the older shows. For example, the 10-year old son of one of my mom's friend's was recently over at my house. He considers the remake of "Freaky Friday" to be an "old movie" and while he was over, TV Land was on. He fell in love with the black & white sitcom Leave it to Beaver in the same way that I, as a kid, fell in love with The Mickey Mouse Club and the Disneyland series through Vault Disney. I think Disney assumed that only adults who grew up with those shows were actually watching them. The sad thing is that today, the only chance for kids to be familiar with the Walt era TV programs is through parents or older siblings who collect the Treasures. But the fact that small prints of these shows aren't selling out doesn't look promising for our cause.
