    Why can't Disney XD give their acquisitions a chance? I haven't seen a SINGLE promo for Yo-Kai Watch or Gaming Show In My Parents Garage and both were put bad timeslots. CN and Nick gave their acquired series chances and look, TTG! and Alvin are their most popular shows. If it can happen to them, then why can't it happen here? They really need to step it up.

    I got home from work at twelve thirty am and I was surprised to see Tron Uprising followed by Motorcity, even if the times sucks I'm amazed they would put those shows back on the schedule.

    Well Doraemon did good enough with out much advertisement that they kept the show on all year long and gave it a second season. Sure it probably would have done better with advertisement. Disney dx probably hopes yo-kai will do the same.

    Yo-Kai Watch isn't for a little under 3 weeks, so I wouldn't expect a promo yet. As for Gaming Show, THAT they were stupid with. The show wasn't announced to be coming to XD in the US until the day before it premiered, and they didn't air any promos or put it on social media until the very day.

    Well, the Star Wars Rebels season premiere is getting promoted and it premieres NEXT MONTH. I don't see why they can't do that with their acquisitions.

    That's the thing with these damn networks: Star Wars Rebels is a Disney XD Original, let alone one they want to shove in people's faces. Back when it premiered they kept running the episodes in order practically every other day. It's like the Teen Titans Go! of Disney XD (except Star Wars Rebels is at least somewhat quality).

    Because profits are split between Disney, Viz Media, OLM, and Level 5, whereas with Star Wars: Rebels, all the profits go to Disney.

    You guys know how the Right Back/Now Back bumpers use stills from the show or promotional art? Well, it seems Pickle & Peanut's has simply, character artwork on a white background for the purple/night bumpers, but in the green/morning ones, they have full backgrounds. Not sure if this meant it wasn't final.

    Also, The 7D's morning "Now Back" bumper (because they've never played the night ones yet) doesn't have a Disney XD logo at the end. I know, I don't get it either.

    Advertisements for Yo-kai watch have began. I saw one before a rerun of 7D.

    Does anyone think that Disney XD will acquire Rocket Monkeys? The show recently premiered on some of the international feeds and Nickelodeon has lost the rights to it.

    I actually want Disney XD to acquire Thunderbirds Are Go. They could do wonders with that show because if it airs on Cartoon Network or Nick (or Nicktoons Network), it will fail miserably.

    Incidentally, according to a comment on the official Thunderbirds Are Go Facebook, the US fans won't have to wait a bit longer. ;)

    Right now, there's a marathon of Lab Rats and Lab Rats: Bionic Island from 12m-6a, and a marathon of Phineas and Ferb from 6a-8:30a, and a massive marathon of Star Sun. 12n-7p.

    It looks like they changed the early morning schedule. The showings of Tron: Uprising, Doctor Who, Aaron Stone, I'm in the Band, and Pair of Kings were taken off this week and will return on October 2nd. Someone please help me understand the concept of how they randomly decide to change schedules, it never makes sense to me Lol!

    You know, since all of Disney XD's programming is shot in HD, they should start letterboxing it's SD feed like what CN does.

    The commercial for next week's Pickle & Peanut unleashed a Halloween theme for the rebrand! We'll probably see more of that in the next few days.

    ... Star Vs. is not getting treated as well as it should be with this setup; Wander Over Yonder and Penn Zero have it even worse with no airtime for either. And I'm sure someone who actually like the Marvel Cartoons is going to be annoyed, unless they have some decent runtime on weekends.

    Bottom Line: Too much marathon-action going on here that could have been balanced out - no wonder I'm seeing more and more fantasy schedules propping up as an escape for people who can't sand this trash, either.

    That's also because Phineas & Ferb get overplayed way too dang much for other shows to get their shine.

    This schedule is starting to get ridiculous. It's pretty much as bad as CN's schedule right now. It's a shame too because both networks are my favorite kids' networks to watch. Are marathons really the only strategy all networks do nowadays!?
