    A little late, but was it great?

    It was alright. They did a thing called "Adult Swim Jr." with kiddie-themed bumps and gag dubs of preexisting shows.

    Speaking of Adult Swim, the KF logo was changed to the Death Note logo. :confused:

    (I still remember when they aired Death Note on [as].)

    They've brought back King of the Hill and Futurama.

    That's good.

    Back in the day [as] became much less watchable after the end of Futurama.

    Meatwad: Why don't you ask that TV if he'd mind showing me some Futurama? I like me some Futurama.
    Master Shake: Well, now we're too damn cheap to receive it, so go the hell over to Carl Central and watch it to your heart's content.
    Meatwad: Carl gets Futurama?
    Master Shake: He didn't even want it until we started watching it.

    When Comedy Central got the broadcasting rights to Futurama, they showed it on a really unpredictable schedule, IIRC.

    I heard Adult Swim tried to get syndication rights for both Archer and Always Sunny but Comedy Central outbid them. Then they barely aired either show.

    The long-awaited first season of Smiling Friends premiered this week. The show is created by Zach Hadel (psychicpebbles) and Michael Cusack and features a lot of cameos I won't spoil for you. One voice you won't hear is Chris despite a rumor floating around last year.

    This was pre-merge and everybody was talking about the potential PR nightmare that would come from this. I think AS learned their lesson after giving Sam Hyde his own show.
