Farewell Toonami. You shall be greatly missed. Sad

feel free to revel in the violence and depravity that Batman: Gotham Knight's presence will bring to the American TV Landscape! Including: graphic bullet wounds! Decapitated villains! Harsh violence and more!

Between adding Cartoon Network HD to the list of channels Comcast doesn't carry (*weeps at watching Clone Wars in SD*,) and the horrifying depths of censorship I suspect this will go though ... gonna have to pass.

Isn't Team Timeslot's normal solution to this being wisked away into the witness protection program of "Go buy the DVD"? Granted, I am still trying to locate a real downside to this.

Oh well, at least with the BK promotion out of their system for the next six months, the few remaining shows worth watching can return (until the other couple CN shows worth watching premier their second "season" in a week or two.)

Toonami Jetstream is still being updated. At least, for now until they pull the plug on that.

I don't understand why Cartoon Network doesn't use the Toonami branding for their new Friday night action block. After all, Toonami was never exclusively anime, was it?

Well, the movie is rated TV-14-V, so there may be little censorship.

Tonight's Naruto is still the only scheduled episode for all of October. Just what the heck does CN plan to do with this series? EDIT: Schedule change. Another ep is scheduled in two weeks.

I'm pretty sure Cartoon Network isn't available in HD, so it's not just a Comcast thing. & yeah, the thing is rated TV-14-V. Should survive unedited.

Maybe they'll keep it, since it is Cartoon Network's online video service, and it has had some success already. Not to mention it isn't taking up valuable airtime or anything. Think of it like AS Video, where AS airs anime that haven't been on tv in years. So maybe they'll keep it. Maybe they'll change the name(like how the AS Fix became AS Video), but I don't see why they'd outright remove it.

What, you're not watching and loving to bits those Robotech reruns on Space? Wink

Yeah, pretty bad right now. Death Note reruns haphazardly scattered all over Scream's schedule. Nothing on G4 at the moment (did they actually get through a second run of Black Lagoon?) and no more movies in the alphabetical series Teletoon started earlier this year with the likes of Akira and Appleseed.

It's why Zip.ca continues to be well worth the monthly subscription fees as an alternative to TV channel packages.

Actually, there is a Cartoon Network HD.

This week's click actually brought up the exact question I had when MD Geist aired on Monday. What's the point? It's old and awful in pretty much every respect, so unless people tuned in just to laugh at it's awfulness or out of nostalgia, it really isn't going to grab ratings. Would putting something recent, or dare I say it: NEW, really be any worse? Perhaps it was just dirt cheap to air it, but a lot of people know when they're being shoveled crap and don't want to stick around for it.

Well at least they didn't play sword of truth again...Nice to have some variety in your crappy anime right? CN is slowly turning from the only place that cared about us anime fans to the place that likes to watch us cry... well at least they acknowledge us right? Forget it I'm going to go to disney and watch pucca like all the girls do...see you drove me away CN Mad

Well, not to get anyone's hopes up or anything, but in setting up CG and Moribito to record, I checked upcoming times. Comcast shows Code Geass on at 12:00 with repeats at 3:00 for 10/12 and 10/19. For a moment I was gonna write it off as old info that hadn't yet updated--until I remembered CG was on at 1:00 before the move to the death slot.

No reflection of this on the ol' [as] schedule. Though I doubt there would be until, say, Friday afternoon if there was going to be a change, anyway. Rolling Eyes

Like I said, don't get your hopes up--it could be just my cable being stupid (there were no upcoming times beyond today's episode for Moribito at all, and Bleach would be moved forward a half hour). But you never know, random nonsensical last-minute schdedule changes every three or four weeks is adult swim's MO.

IIRC, back when Toonami aired on weekday nights except on Fridays, the reasoning was that Friday night is when little kids could stay up later at night after a week of sleeping early for school. So, ratings for Friday nights was/is geared for younger viewers than the Toonami brand would portray to ad sponsors.
