Bob and Margaret is technically owned by Corus. It's on one of its foreign YT legal streaming channels and it aired on Global before Corus bought them.

There are several Adult Swim/former Teletoon at Night shows that would probably be cleared for pre-watershed broadcast - Home Movies, early seasons of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Bob's Burgers, Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, The Brak Show...

Family Guy, Rick and Morty, etc. might be iffy, but the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has ruled on Family Guy episodes before as being suitable for pre-watershed with a disclaimer.

It'd also be cool if Canada got their own Toonami...or at least season 5 of Samurai Jack.

It would be interesting if they dusted off the Rock & Rule movie from 1983 and tested the waters to see if there's an audience for a reboot. The film has a cult following and a had a run on CBC at one point.

That's not surprising. When I went to Canada a few years ago, I remember a Toronto station (CityTV?) airing 2 Broke Girls before the watershed with very lewd jokes and a PG rating. The same show airs later on my local US station with a TV-14 and I'm not sure whether it gets edited or not.

I don't think present day Nelvana could do justice to Rock & Rule. It's probably better off not being dug up.

That said, I do have questions about another revival. Last year's 6teen election short was extremely popular. I'm kind of convinced a full scale return for that show is inevitable. It was an iconic Teletoon series, so it's going to be odd if it exclusively airs on AS Canada.

Speaking of Teletoon, they put out this promo:

Young Justice is there, which suggests the animated DC productions will stay with them.

Here in Portugal you can get away with lewd jokes on imported content, RTP 2 aired just the first season of 2 Broke Girls without problems. Feature films, at least on SIC, remove some "violent" content but some swears are allowed (yet the subtitles either bowdlerize or remove them, even on premium networks).

This decision is going to be beneficial for the Canadian adult audiences. But U.S. doesn't like change that much, so we wouldn't be seeing something like this anytime sooner.

Isn’t this the first time Samurai Jack season 5 will be airing in Canada? 7:30 in the morning isn’t exactly a prime premiere slot.

There not airing 2 Nuts and a Richard?!
Yet.

Yes, this is the first time Samurai Jack season 5 is on Canadian TV. Same with Rick & Morty S3 and the majority of those Williams Street shows. Most series have multiple slots. While it seems Jack is getting a weekday morning strip, there's also a Sunday 10:30PM slot.

I'm sure the CBSC will love this channel.

Would it be possible to get a source for all of this information?

They really went all out for launch day. Does Canadian cable have any content restrictions put on it?

The Watershed marks the start of the late evening viewing period, defined as running from 9 pm to 6 am. Television content which contains material “intended exclusively for an adult audience” must be aired after the Watershed. While initially created for the purposes of the Violence Code (see Clause 3 of the Violence Code), the Watershed has been used since its introduction by broadcasters as a general demarcation point for all forms of adult content. This expanded use has now been codified in Clause 10 of the CAB Code of Ethics which requires that programming which contains sexually explicit content or coarse or offensive language be aired post-Watershed.
Like I said, the CBSC will love this channel. The CRTC has similar requirements, but I haven't been able to dig them up yet.

No Futurama?
It's looking like Corus lost the rights to the series last year. I'm not sure it's airing elsewhere right now.
