FOX (ended 2010)

Is Adult Swim using KOTH as a 'buffer' show?

    So they're running it at 9PM/9:30PM, and then again at 5AM/5:30AM. Is this an effort to keep anything else a parent might find objectionable compressed with the acceptable KOTH surrounding both bedtime and getting-up time?

    The thing about "King of the Hill" on Adult Swim that annoys me the most is the formatting. All the season 13 HD episodes are aired in full-screen so all the corners are cropped off. I will hear a character talk from what would have been the far left or right side of the screen in widescreen, but on Adult Swim, I can only see their hand wave. At first I thougt maybe they couldn't air the show in widescreen formatting, but now I see the new HD Family Guys on there are aired with the black bars in WIDESCREEN!!!

    Now that I think about it, that's highly possible.

    I think it's probably on when more of an audience is up because it's more popular, along with FG, Futurama etc...not sure what the current lineup is since we dropped cable, but always remembered the Fox rerun stuff on earlier and usualy the wierd crap later in the middle of the night.
