Why is trinity blood getting such a late schedule. I've seen the schedule and i think that a 10 or 10:30 showing is probably appropriate. Oh well I wasn't fond of that show anyways, the real succesor will be bleach until it starts hitting filler eps.

We can all thank God that [AS] has faith in Bleach putting in its 11:30 slot, a slot once reserved for the likes of FMA, Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, Sam. Champloo, and even The Boondocks. Although the later premiered on Sundays and was an extra slot, the others two are probably the best examples of what happens when a show gets the 11:30 slot (for those who don't know the general norm is that a comedy show, Futurama now but Family Guy and Sealab have as well, takes up the 11:00 kickoff and the anime itself begins at 11:30).

They stay for more than one run. So since more people will probably watch a new show at 11:30PM instead of 2:00AM, that means a better chance at higher ratings, and that Bleach might not end up like Blue Gender and Reign: The Conqueror.

Adult Swim doesn't start until 11 on Saturdays. And if you think they'll show it on Toonami, you've got another thing coming.

And anyway, when has AS ever premiered an anime at a time other than midnight or 12:30 (not counting the anime block in 2002)?

Probably because the show itself is heavily anime inspired.

Yes you are, since it's listed under Cartoon Network and not Adult Swim.

Teen Titans is to kiddish for Adult Swim. So therefore, it's on Cartoon Network.

You mean a pile of crap?

Honestly, comparisons between Bleach and Blue Gender/Reign aren't valid. Bleach is good. The other two, not so much.

People just love to blame AS's scheduling for the failure of certain anime, when sometimes the shows just aren't that good.

The filler in Bleach is actually good, though some of the episodes pop in at the worst times. Naruto could have really learned something from the Bountou arc, if you watch it not knowing it's filler it blends in pretty well.
