How to improve Adult Swim... First and foremost, the live action gets flushed. That's the most important thing. Their live action shows just don't tend to be all that good compared to even the worst of the animated shows. Second, put more into Toonami. More money. More promotion. More time. Better timeslots. Making it a six-hour run was great and all, but we all know that those last three hours are pretty empty, both in content and in ratings. You wanna make Adult Swim a quality block? Toonami starts at 11, or better still at 9, on Saturday nights. Hell, it would be great to have it every night. Adult Swim was at its best when it had anime on nearly every night, in my opinion. I remember in 2003, weeknights were Futurama, Family Guy, then it went into action, and the action was by far the better part. But that might be a bit much to ask, since Toonami is something of a nostalgia property. I'm actually not going to suggest getting rid of Family Guy, even though I feel hatred beyond measure for it, at least one of its sister shows, and its creator's output in general. Family Guy gets good ratings which are necessary for Adult Swim to keep going at all, it's not live action, it's significantly more coherent than some of the more "stoner-friendly" parts of the lineup... It's still trash, but Adult Swim right now is so bad that Family Guy comes out looking good in comparison to some of the stuff.

Also, give us more of The Venture Brothers, The Boondocks, and Metalocalypse... And that Black Dynamite show, that was pretty good too. Adult Swim's original comedy hasn't been entirely without merit. Robot Chicken is pretty decent too, in my opinion.

Adult Swim's quality of content has always been shit. How old are you? Most of the shows have low budgets since it's a night show. They have TRIED to air anime but it gets shit ratings and yet people complain but won't bother tuning in.

Definitely Venture Bros.
Metalocolypse is good too.
I also enjoy watching Superjail, especially when I am high, that shit is hilarious.
Family Guy, definitely not.

They're not going to get rid of Family Guy just because one guy doesn't like it. And what are you doing watching Johnny Test, that show is for little kids.

Adult swim is doing fine in terms of ratings, they shouldn't change anything from the current lineup.

also, banning Macfarlane shows from the network is a stupid idea, that's their main source of ratings.

Ok, I don't know what you are going on about, but Family Guy used to be a really good show, it was cancelled because the network didn't give it that much of a chance.

They should stop stealing claymations from the portal and put some damn effort into what they do.

The only quality shows that belong to THEM are black dynamite, the boondocks, and robot chicken, but even then robot chicken is 50/50.
In fact if it wasn't for toonami I wouldn't watch them at all. Which is downright terrible because the good shows air at 1:00 AM and they assume everyone has a DVR. Well you know what AS, fuck you. Fuck you. Nothing makes airing anime that late justified. If I had the option, I would watch it online.

Make Saddle Rash a full series. Mitch Hedberg may be dead, but his character in the pilot doesn't need to come back.

Stop airing American Dad.

Show Family Guy less often.

2 things

1 ever hear of babysitting your cousins and watching the shows with them? I was doing this and my cousin actually like Johnny test.

2 It isn't just me who doesn't like this show there are others who think this shows needs to go back in the grave and stay there as well.

I don't think you understand, Family Guy brings in more views than any other show. If you drop Family Guy, you would kill adult swim.

It sucks, but the vast majority of people love it. It stays.

Hey guys, this may be a little off topic, but [AS] is going to air the incredibly rare episode of Dexter's Lab entitled Rude Removal where everybody swears and there's lewd innuendo and shit Tuesday afternoon.

Here is a link: http://ow.ly/i/1oJG0

It's sure to be a fun afternoon.

They used to have toonami on like this in the old days back when Cartoon network was actually worth watching.

That sucks. Lucky for me, I've been able to get my niece into all the kid friendly shows that I watched as a kid, as well as the few good new ones such as Adventure Time and the Thundercats reboot.

That new Thundercats show is actually really good.

I think it would be neat if Toonami was on in the early evening on weekdays just like back in the day, as long as they leave out the crap like Naruto, Bleach, and Inuyasha. They should have stuff like Big O, Gundam 08th MS Team, and Yu Yu Hakusho. And it would be sick if they showed Reboot.

That show was great, but there have been plenty of other good shows on AS. Boondocks, Venture Brothers, Sealab, Harvey Birdman, ATHF, Squidbillies, Home Movies, etc.
