FOX to Develop New Late-Night Block of Animated Programming

Move over, Adult Swim; there’s a new player in the pool.

I didn't realize that Adult Swim did that well in the ratings. I haven't watched any of the shows myself but I will check the schedule to see what they have on there.

I don't think Fox will be able to get away with the same level of raunchy humor that Adult Swim enjoys on cable. Not to mention Adult Swim original programming is made extremely cheaply and has a loyal fan base while Fox is going to struggle turning a profit or cutting into Adult Swim's fan base.

That's what I thought...they do have an adult theme...don't they? It's usually on late night anyway. The shows that FOX does are on prime time.
