Blast! You beat me to it, although you have more detail than I would have had.

That sort of sucks though, I was very happy that Futurama was on at 11:00, it let me sleep more.

Although I did like the ad that announced the change.

You can't be upset though because Cartoon Network makes it known that their line-up changes unlike a certain network ..Wink Wink..

...Nudge nudge... ...grin grin... Say no more, Say no more.

Anyway...

I was not really upset, just sad over the fact that I am losing about 30 minutes of sleep.

And...

Damn Fox to hell!!!!

I think CN just changes the lineup for Futurama and Family Guy to give the two shows ample rotation. A lot of people can't afford to stay up late but are fans of both, so it gives people a chance to see the shows in moderation.

*humph* I hate when it goes to 11:30.  I never manage to stay awake long enough.  I guess that's what the DVDs are for...

Doesn't matter for me because I'm in Alaska so the shows come on at 7:00 @ 7:30 for me here. I know send me all hate mail you want.

BTW... Alliteration I didn't mean you being upset I meant the Futurama Fan Base in general can't be upset about the change including me.    laff

i dont mind it moving to saturady. I hate CN's Saturday linbeup anyway so a non-shitty, non-anime show on Sat is welcomed by me.

And besides Sunday still has Brak, Family Guy, and ATHF.

Not bad at all.

I think it's just a wee bit annoying if Family Guy changes places with Futurama during the week days, i don't pay enough attension to the shows at 11:30, but I guess my attension span will have to grow another half hour. I am however very happy about Futurama being on Saturday, though upset it lost Sunday. I don't mean to offend any anime lovers, or maybe I do, but I hate anime and I'm glad it's being replaced by Futurama and Sealab. Apologies to the freak anime lovers

That's a good point since I usually watch the Daily Show as well.  I can flip on CN at 11:30 and not see Family Guy.  That sounds great to me.

I think they switch the adult swim line up regularly to help keep things fresh.  I think it's a good idea.

Well wait... I just watched adult swim last night and the schedule they posted during a commercial break stated that Futurama would be on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00.

Maybe they just made a mistake with the cards, they have done it before after all.

I was gonna' say... I'm pretty sure they just mixed up the cards.

Anyway, I don't really care about the schedule change as long as I get my fair share of Futurama. I probably won't even watch it on TV anymore once I get my Season 4 DVD's. I'm just glad that it won't affect my sleep cycle. I never thought I'd say this, but HOORAY FOR INSOMNIA!

I don't mind if they move Futurama around, but did they have to put that Sealab crap on Saturday?  It's on right between Futurama and InuYasha.  How am I supposed to avoid watching that?

On the other hand, they're bringing Lupin back on weeknights, and that's always a good thing.

yes that is exactly what happened. I watched Adult Swim the past 2 days and Futurama was on Saturday and Family Guy was on Sunday, just as previously indicated.

Dammit! Why did no one tell me this sooner!? I missed The Sting and I'm am pretty mad. Now I have to wait till the stupid rerun or the freakin DVD comes out! Sorry I've had a bad weekend and I missed the Sting *cries*! I won't be surprised if no one cares, no one ever does...  frown

This isn't annoying per se, but I really prefer the show on at 11:00. But, like TheLampIncident said, this gives both Futurama and Family Guy the prized timeslot, on a rotational basis. And actually, although it'll never be as great as Futurama, Family Guy ain't half bad.

EDIT: Spacedal, I feel your pain. You wouldn't believe how many times I've forgotten to check the [as] schedule and missed some of my favorite episodes (I finally got "The Why of Fry" and "The Sting" on tape, after such a long time without seeing them). I can't wait for the DVD to come out, then this kind of stuff won't happen...

*Glares at Family Guy*

Then again, how long do you think it will take for them to switch times again?

bumping this is better then making a new thread...

according to Adult Swim (no internet address as proof for right now) this is the top ratings for their network.

Saturday (7/3/04)
InuYasha.................398,000
Futurama...............368,000
SeaLab....................351,000

Sunday (7/4/04)
Family Guy...............409,000
Harvey Birdman.........349,000
Baby Blues...............342,000

When you do things right, people wont be sure you've done anything at all.

Well, if Futurama has get second in ratings to anything, at least it's something good. (Besides, since they only show new episodes of Inuyasha once a week, what d'ya expect...)   hmpf

That's actually a good point, Cloud 9.  Those ratings are for a rerun of Futurama compared to a brand new episode of InuYasha.

...So it proves that ratings of reruns of a cancelled show are very close to those of new episodes of a popular anime. How can Fox miss that?! *pulls out hair*   mad Well, I guess you can't expect them to sit around watching ratings of every rerun show they've cancelled...
