    Finally! Disney XD has a dazzling Weekend Overnight schedule to stay up for!


    4 shows, 4 hours, 2 nights. All the best.


    It starts with back-to-back episodes of "Kick Buttowski" at 12:00 Midnight, followed by back-to-back episodes of "Phineas and Ferb" at 1:00 AM. Then it's back-to-back episodes of "Fish Hooks" at 2:00 AM. HOWEVER, that hour belongs to nickToons with their back-to-back airings of "Invader Zim", so "Fish Hooks" loses this hour. Last but not least, it's the best of the best on Disney XD's Weekend Overnight lineup, back-to-back episodes of "Kid Vs. Kat" starting at 3:00 AM! It's worth staying up for!


    Tune in every Weekend Overnight starting at 12:00 Midnight on Disney XD!

    I don't think the satellite version of Disney XD has the "NickToons" interruption.

    Though staying up for that stuff is kinda silly, when they used to show much, much better stuff like Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Gargoyles, and other cool cartoons.

    I think those are still on, but only on Fridays.

    No, no, no! You misunderstood! Disney XD's Weekend overnight hour of "Fish Hooks" is up against nickToons' hour of "Invader Zim" at 2:00 AM. Fans are choosing Zim over the Freshwater team that hour. There's no nickToons interruption unless fans change the channel!

    There's been some tampering by Disney XD of its Weekend Overnight schedule as of late.


    First off, the network is airing its new animated series "Motorcity" at 12:00 Midnight. Then there's "Ultimate Spider-Man" Saturdays and the new series "Tron: Uprising" Sundays at 12:30 AM. The only hour that remins unchanged is the 1:00 AM hour, where "Phineas and Ferb" air back-to-back episodes.


    "Kick Buttowski" now faces the competition from nickToons and its hit "Invader Zim" at 2:00 AM, which doesn't bode well for KB. As the suburban daredevil himself would say, "Biscuits!"


    Unfortunately, the 3:00 AM hour is where Disney XD has made a fatal misjudgment in revamping the schedule. The network has disrespectfully replaced the much better "Kid Vs. Kat" with the bubbling under "Fish Hooks"! And viewers are not happy about that.


    Topping off Disney XD's lineup at 4:00 AM is another episode of "Phineas and Ferb", which faces stiff competition from another episode of "Invader Zim" on nickToons. Unless Disney Junior decides to air "Timon & Pumbaa" in that time period weekends like it does weekdays, leading to a showdown of major proportions. Stay tuned.

    SCHEDULE UPDATE!: Disney XD has flip-flopped its shows in the 12:00 Midnight Weekend hour. Now "Ultimate Spider-Man" airs Saturdays while 'Tron: Uprising' airs Sundays at 12:00 Midnight, with "Motorcity" airing at 12:30 AM.


    Now let's see if the network can do something right and bring back "Kid Vs. Kat" in the Weekend Overnight schedule.

    It did!


    Disney XD has brought back "Kid Vs. Kat" to its Weekend Overnight schedule, airing at 4:00 AM. That's the good news. So what's the bad news?


    This should sum it all up: "Korra Kicks Kick Buttowski's Buttowski In 2:00 AM Weekend Battle". You guessed it, "Kick Buttowski" is now facing nickToons' big hit "The Legend Of Korra" in the 2:00 AM Weekend hour. Meanwhile, "Kid Vs. Kat" claws nickToons' second half-hour of its 'Super Stack' of "Invader Zim" to pieces in the 4:00 AM time slot, after Zim flounders the fish from Disney XD's "Fish Hooks" at 3:30 AM, which is the second half-hour of "Fish Hooks".


    "Phineas and Ferb" is not affected by any competition in the 1:00 AM hour, while "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" now takes over the 12:30 AM time period Saturday nights.

    There's been some big changes in the Weekend Overnight viewing as of late.


    First, at 1:00 AM, Teennick now has back-to-back airings of the classic hit nickToon "CatDog", which are encored starting at 3:00 AM. The 1:00 AM "CatDog" airings defeat "Phineas and Ferb" on Disney XD ALL Weekend and "The Legend Of Korra" on nickToons on Sunday nights. However, "Korra" is able to top "Kick Buttowski" at 2:00 AM Saturday nights, while "KB" has the 2:00 AM hour Sunday nights.


    And at 3:00 AM, "CatDog" tops Disney XD's hour of "Fish Hooks".


    Disney XD still rules the 4:00 AM Weekend morning hour with back-to-back "Kid Vs. Kat", with the 4:30 AM airings overruling "Lilo & Stitch: The Series" on Disney Junior the Channel.


    But hold on! The 5:00 AM time period every morning has had some alternating programming set ups. Normally, Disney Channel would rule with their airings of "Fish Hooks". But every other week "Fish Hooks" gets bumped, leaving "Kick Buttowski" on Disney XD to fill the time slot on those alternate weeks.


    "Phineas and Ferb" on Disney Channel holds on to the 5:30 AM time period almost every morning.

    While Disney XD's lineup remains the same, it now gets upstaged most of the Weekends Overnight by programming on Teennick and nickToons.


    At 1:00 AM, "Phineas and Ferb", and at 3:00 AM, "Fish Hooks", both on Disney XD, are upstaged by that night's episodes of "CatDog" on Teennick, while now at 2:00 AM, "Kick Buttowski" on Disney XD gets upstaged by "Danny Phantom" on nickToons.


    Disney still rules the early morning period with "Kid Vs. Kat" at 4:00 AM on Disney XD (the 4:30 AM airings overruling "Lilo & Stitch: The Series" on Disney Junior the Channel), followed by Disney Channel's combination of "Fish Hooks" at 5:00 AM and "Phineas and Ferb" at 5:30 AM.

    Big news! With nickToons deciding to air 'Dragon Ball Z' movies in late night Saturday nights, bumping "Danny Phantom" in the 2:00 AM hour, Disney XD regains control of that hour with their back-to-back airings of "Kick Buttowski". So Disney is again having the majority of overnight series to view. Mostly.

    BREAKING NEWS! Disney XD has changed their Weekend Overnight lineup for this weekend. The network has bumped "Kick Buttowski" and "Kid Vs. Kat"- and to a lesser extent, "Phineas and Ferb". Also, the "Fish Hooks" episode scheduled for 12:30 AM and the "Ultimate Spider-Man" episode at 12:00 Midnight, as well as the 5:00 AM "Kick Buttowski" and 5:30 AM "Ultimate Spider-Man" episodes, have all been bumped for this weekend.


    The network will be doing 2-hour 'Super Stacks' of "Kickin' It", "Fish Hooks", and "Crash and Bernstein", respectively starting at 12:00 Midnight tonight.


    It should be noted that Disney Channel will have a 90-minute 'Super Stack' of "Gravity Falls" tonight at 12:00 Midnight, with the 1:00 AM episode upstaging the 1:00 AM airing of "CatDog" from Teennick. Meanwhile, the first hour of Disney XD's special "Fish Hooks" 'Super Stack' dominates at 2:00 AM, while the second hour is upstagedat 3:00 AM by Teennick's encore hour of "CatDog".


    And because "Crash and Bernstein" is irresponsibly pre-empting "Kid Vs. Kat" this weekend, there is nothing to watch at 4:00 AM! However, there is "Lilo & Stitch: The Series" on Disney Junior The Channel at 4:30 AM, and regular airings of "Fish Hooks" and "Phineas and Ferb" on Disney Channel starting at 5:00 AM.


    By the way, the 2:00 AM reign for "Fish Hooks" on Disney XD will be for tonight only. Overnight tomorrow, nickToons will rule that hour with "Danny Phantom". Just a little reminder.

    It seems Disney XD continues to bump its regular Weekend Overnight Animation schedule to air 'Super Stacks' of mostly live-action junk. Late tonight/early tomorrow morning, however, one of the 'Super Stacks' will be of "Fish Hooks" starting at 3:00 AM. But, the one hour of that 'Super Stack' coincides with Teennick's encores of tonight's back-to-back episodes of "CatDog", just so you know.
