So because they have two high rating shows (for ASC, ASA never gets in the Top 100 anymore) they shouldn't get anything else that can be potentially popular and get good ratings? I don't understand what you mean, nor what this "apps" is.Originally Posted by Duke

I love Teen Titans but there is not enough eps for a strip..
I have a feeling that the 7-12 was a mistake and the block will only be 7-11. After all, if the plans for Adult Swim Saturday had changed in the month since it was confirmed, we should have been informed by now.
And coincedentally, the shows listed for Toonami add up to 4 hours of programming (provided all those shows listed air at the same time...).
EDIT: I misread some crap.
I do. Because if it isn't, all this means is that we're stuck with Toonami's custom openings' on Saturdays instead of the originals and that weekdays will be taken over by crap 'money maker' shows with no compensation for our trouble.Originally Posted by JohnCrichton

According to sources, don't expect a sudden shift to a "TV-PG" block. Starting out this will be more like Adult Swim Action when it started, although not quite to that extent. As the press release stated, the block will be targeting teens (i.e. shows like Kenshin stick around), and they plan to push the boundaries, but it will be slowly.
What can you expect? As some have already speculated, the "higher content" shows will likely be towards the end of the block and the last hour is where they will start to drop in some TV-PG episodes. Assuming things go alright with that, the amount of "middle-ground" edited programming will slowly grow.
Frankly, this is probably the best way for Cartoon Network to do things. Many had already speculated that a middle-ground block would be very hard to pull off and that is way it has to be approached gradually. When shifting to something like this you don't want to tip the boat over at the very beginning.
The main news for the annoucement today isn't that we are suddenly getting a teen block, it is that we are suddenly getting something that could evolve into a teen block. In its old format (outside of Gundam Wing MNR and Iron Giant) Toonami was pretty much stuck at TV-Y7. Now they can start mixing it up a bit.
The good news is that the programming on the block already does, or likely will already push the limits of TV-Y7. CN gets away with more in their TV-Y7 material already than any other network on televsion. Toonami will get the higher end of those shows, while Mizugi will get the lower end. You'd never see Kenshin, YYH, Gundam SEED, etc. on any other network's block. Thus, we are already a lot closer to the goal than Adult Swim Action was when it started.
Basically, we are shifting and stepping in the right direction, but don't except a sudden shift overnight. Good things take time.
That doesn't mean they'll start airing stuff that doesn't belong on the block tho. Just because it gets great ratings doesn't mean they'll start picking the next Pokemon UNCUT and Hikaru No Go... it just means they're flying high and pretty with what they're doing and that showing adult anime; not showing anime who'd spend an episode teaching children the value of teamwork or that it's okay to cry.Originally Posted by Cyber E.
Adult Swim should get Ninja Scroll TV if it wants a ninja. Because it's adult.
There's nothing wrong with it, I just don't care, so long as I get the shows and the stories with them. I mean, I care as much about a cigarette edit, as I do about not hearing curse words on the radio when listening to my favorite song.What would be wrong with a block of shows aimed at a 13+ audience to be TV-PG? Most of the family sitcoms airing on the networks are TV-PG.
