    Black Dynamite and Venture Bros for Toonami?

    Like This Thread!
    I know this is really petty, especially considering Black Dynamite is already pretty close to Toonami's air time, but at the same time I can't stop thinking about it.

    As much as I love anime and thankful they're airing Thundercats and Sym Bionic Titan, I wouldn't mind if there was a just a little more variety to their line-up, and why not have Toonami go on a bit earlier to air both of shows? It's not like Toonami hasn't aired action/comedies before.

    Only if Toonami expanded the whole night.

    I'd settle for expanding to 11PM to include them because I have no reservations on Family Guy and Cleveland Show leaving any time soon.

    I wouldn't mind their inclusion, particularly Venture Bros. but the elephant in the room as both don't do well in reruns and they may be a detriment to Toonami's ratings. I mean seriously I'm pretty sure Bleach premieres could do better at 11PM than either.

    If you're thinking premieres for either, that's still not a good idea because they'd surely do better on another day.

    Back Dynamite needs to stay as far away from Saturday nights as possible. I know it did okay on Sunday, but as one of the lead ins to Toonami, the ratings BOMBED. People give Toonami a lot of gripe for its fluxuating ratings as is and if Black Dynamite were added, I believe the block would be in serious trouble.

    Now Venture on the other hand...

    I will not deny there is a lot of action in both series, but I think they were meant to be comedies first and foremost. Black Dynamite even more so.

    Eh, I honestly wouldn't want either of these two shows to air on Toonami, neither of which have that Toonami feel to them and I would rather more entertaining shows air on the block than these ones. Maybe Adult Swim could do a secondary night for action heavy programs and add these to the lineup, but I doubt that would ever happen since they love to spam Robot Chicken and Family Guy all the time.

    Yeah, I have a....

    Afro Samurai. This anime would fit Toonami better than either Venture Bros. or Black Dynamite.

    Does SpikeTV still control this series?

    To my knowledge yes. I think they helped fund it so they'll always have it.
