    Would Regular Show fit better for Adult Swim?

    Like This Thread!
    If Regular Show is more of an adult-aimed cartoon than a kid one, then why is it airing on CN rather than AS?

    P.S. I don't watch or like this show (no offense), I just wanted to know.

    Regular Show is one of those weird shows that teeters between the two demographics.

    It's a bit edgy for Cartoon Network, yet at the same time, it's a bit tame for Adult Swim.

    So no, I don't think RS would be better suited for AS. The 8PM hour is the best possible slot where they can fit it, since it's the transitional hour between the two networks.

    Regular Show is my favorite show on CN daytime and while it has plenty of adult fans and could potentially do well for Adult Swim, there's really no need to move it to Adult Swim. It has the occasional moment that pushes CN's boundaries but for the most part it's "safe enough".

    I've seen most of Regular Show's episodes and it really doesn't look like it would belong on Adult Swim. It has a bit more of an edge than some other shows on Cartoon Network where it could appeal to an older audience, but I don't think it would fit quite well with Adult Swim's lineup either.

    No, I think it's better off CN. Although it seems to be getting more and more violent...

    Part of the fun of Regular Show is to see how much they get pass the radar. It's like an in-joke the viewers are on.

    Considering they started censoring it, they could air reruns uncut once the series is over in the future, since it seems that they don't want to air the same shows on CN and [as] at the same time.

    It's too mild. I'd love to see a more mature oriented version of RS that could air on AS. Maybe JG Quintel's next project after RS will be something more suited for AS. I'd like to see what he could do with more freedom.
