Not to go off-topic, but I was lucky enough to just start watching Toonami a couple of weeks ago, and since then, I've cleared my schedule for Saturday nights. None of the shows currently airing on Toonami are currently airing on any Canadian network, and the whole idea of that robot Tom hosting the entire program block aboard that ship the Absolution... it's pretty awesome.if they are trying to make teletoon at night into an action block they should show anime like they do in the states in america i heard on their adult swim every saturday at 11 o clock at night (i think that is the time) they show a bunch of anime in a block called toonami so if they are going to make teletoon at night an action block they should bring toonami to canada
Unfortunately, I don't think the block will be coming to Canada anytime soon. While reading up on the history of Toonami, I found out it used to be 6 hours long, but now it's only 3.5 hours, cut back to save on costs. Also, I just don't see Corus caring enough to get the rights to air the Toonami programs on one of their Canadian cartoon channels -- they probably figure Canadians will get their "adult cartoon fix" from the regular Canadian Adult Swim. In fact, if Toonami ever did get a spot on a Canadian network, I bet it wouldn't include the in-between shorts of Tom and the Absolution, and it also probably wouldn't have the latest anime programs on it, with Corus instead choosing to go with older programs to save on costs.
As far as Teletoon at Night goes, it seems like it has been scaled back tremendously, now that most of its programming is on Canadian Adult Swim. Looks like Corus did that to make room for some of the older Teletoon Retro cartoons to air during the Teletoon at Night block, such as Mighty Hercules. And of course, now it looks like they got the rights to Bob's Burgers, just like Cartoon Network USA.
I don't even know how it's going to work once pick-and-pay goes live next year. Between all these "Canadian" cartoon networks -- Teletoon, CN, the three Disney channels, the three Family channels, Nick and YTV -- something is going to cave in. What's next? Is Corus going to launch Nick Jr., Nicktoons and TeenNick, and that way Canada will have 13 different cartoon channels? Oh wait, 14 if you count Discovery Family (aka The Hub). It just doesn't make any sense, and Teletoon Retro should not have been the first to go, unless they plan on rebranding Teletoon as Boomerang at some point in the future.
If that's the game plan, then I wouldn't be surprised if Teletoon at Night continued to be scaled back and eventually removed entirely at some point. Corus could easily move Bob's Burgers and Family Guy to Adult Swim Canada, to match its US counterpart. And if they don't want to give up the rights to Archer, they could move that to AS too.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't make sense having both a Canadian Adult Swim and Teletoon at Night, since both of them are supposed to have the same purpose, airing adult-oriented cartoon programming. Besides, once Corus re-launches the Disney channels, they may end up moving the Disney programs currently airing on Teletoon (Avengers, Hulk, Spiderman) to Disney XD, so Teletoon will have more room available to air other older cartoons on it.
