DBZ wasn't always this rating giant though, was it? Toonami existed then. Toonami was in great shape back when DBZ was a piece of the block, not the block like it is now. We never talked about this doom and gloom if DBZ isn't on for 3 hours a day back when DBZ took up only 1/6 of the afternoon block, did we?
Frankly I don't see why the discussion of ratings comes up. AOL/Time Warner doesn't care about Toonami. They care about that garbage on WB that they base the real Toonami's schedule around (cancelling Rising Sun and an hour of Toonami only because it conflicted with Kids WB). One night of Midnight Run is gone, another will be gone soon as well. The execs have proven to us that they don't care what the ratings are for Toonami, they're gonna do all this crap regardless of how successful Toonami is, since if you noticed, TOONAMI'S BIGGEST PUNISHMENT OCCURED WHEN IT WAS GETTING ITS HIGHEST RATINGS EVER. Thats why I say the ratings don't matter.
The Lone Gunmen. Harsh Realm. John Doe. Firefly. Boston Public. Wonderfalls. And now MadTV. FOX must DIE!!!!!!
