Programming block reduced to 3.5 hours on Saturdays

The official Tumblr for Adult Swim's Toonami block announced on Tuesday that Attack on Titan, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell, and Space Dandy will no longer air after February 7. The block was reduced to 12:00 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. on Saturdays, running for a total of 3.5 hours. The update promised more new shows in the future. Toonami did not guarantee any of the cut shows would return to the schedule. Toonami credited low ratings in the later hours as the reason why the shows were cut.

Toonami posted the following schedule starting on February 7:

12:00 a.m. Dragon Ball Z Kai
12:30 a.m. Kill la Kill
01:00 a.m. Naruto Shippuden
01:30 a.m. Inuyasha the Final Act
02:00 a.m. Gurren Lagann
02:30 a.m. One Piece
03:00 a.m. Deadman Wonderland

This Saturday, January 24, the block will run from 11:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. EST and will not air a new episode of Attack on Titan. On Saturday, January 31 the block will run from 11:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. and not air IGPX and Samurai Jack. IGPX will also go on hiatus, and both IGPX and Samurai Jack "will likely be back at some point." The final two episodes of Samurai Jack will be available on Adult Swim's website and video on demand.
