    I understand that fantasy schedules are not allowed, and I apologize, but I wanted to discuss improving Adult Swim's schedule, with my own ideas on what the schedule should look like. There has been a lot of complaints that Adult Swim shows too many Fox reruns, starts too early, doesn't have enough variety, repeats the same five-hour block after 5 hours, etc. I wanted to discuss what your ideas are for improving the schedule, because I have my own idea.

    First, lose the the repeat block; it's pointless. Secondly, instead of airing the same 5 hour block twice, show a mixture of both comedy series and anime on weeknights. Third, preempt the block a few hours on Friday and Saturday nights; kids tend to stay up late those nights because they don't have school, and with my schedule idea, I was able to delay Adult Swim until 10 PM on Friday, and 11 PM on Saturday. I also dedicated the Friday night schedule to airing reruns of classic Adult Swim shows, like Home Movies and Sealab 2021. I also decided to make Toonami the whole schedule on Saturday nights rather than just some of it.

    Discuss your schedule ideas below!

    Anyway, here's my idea of the weekly Adult Swim schedule:

    I don't think they would be allowed to air DB or One Piece other days that aren't Saturday, since that would be very costly.

    I agree. Airing those shows just once a night is cost-effective.

    That makes it sound like they pay for an anime per episode, not just "get the broadcast rights"? I mean, if they get the rights to One Piece, they should be able to air it all week long, I would think...

    If they aired it in other days it would be just reruns of past episodes.

    They should not be allowed to air the Cleveland Show every single night there aren't enough episodes.

    I personally don't think they should air the Cleveland Show at all
