Cartoon Network expands "Adult Swim" block

"Adult Swim" is on the grow.

Cartoon Network said Monday that it will expand its late-night block by a half-hour Monday-Thursday starting next week.

As of March 27, the Monday-Thursday "Adult Swim" block will begin at 10:30 p.m. instead of 11 p.m., and run through 5 a.m. The expanded block will kick off with an hour of Futurama episodes from 10:30-11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, followed by a rotating lineup of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, and The Boondocks.

The Friday 11 p.m.-6 a.m. "Friday Night Fix" block of fan-favorite "Adult Swim" episodes will remain intact, and the Saturday "Adult Swim" block will continue to begin at 10 p.m.

The expansion of "Adult Swim" comes amid a big push to add original and streaming video content to the Adult Swim Web site, including behind-the-scenes podcasts and programs posted online for on-demand viewing.

What they need to do is give Adult Swim it's own channel.

Besides, how are adults taking over kid tv. America is kid tv, I think what tv need to do is realize everyone is children. Not all adults can kick all-nighters just to watch shows. Whatever kids are up past 10:00 need to go to sleep anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Animation is made by adults and written by adults. Not children, so get your facts right, Harlann.

I love Adult Swim and watched it since it came out. I'm glad that it's expanding and comes earlier now.

Sabbage34 you need to grow up and George Carlin is an washed up idiot! I am willing to bet all of you are 15 years old and have no kids, much less seen one.

Question. What kind of kid is up at 10 pm? Seriously, everybody says worry bout the kids, worry bout the kids. If you are truly worried then make sure they don't have their own TV and that they don't watch this stuff. Also, if you can't do that, just sit down, talk to them, and explain this stuff to them that way they take it the right way.
