I'm surprised they're getting Final Space. Did Netflix not pick up season 1 in France?

Adult Swim returns to France as a block on the Toonami channel:

Shows at launch will include Rick and Morty, Final Space and Robot Chicken. Primal will premiere later this year. There's also going to be a SVOD service that'll feature Mr. Pickles, The Venture Bros. and Black Jesus.
The last time there was an [as] block in France was in 2015 on L'Énorme TV.

And so it began. Adult Swim on Toonami, technically a kids channel there (DBS is censored) is shown between 23:00 and 02:00. Here's a selection of bumpers.

And I thought they were now violating EU laws with this!

More like UK laws to be honest, but Adult Swim France (or "Adult Swim French Language" as it's known as) does in fact have a separate licence so it's actually a seperate channel, I think you're getting mixed up between censorship and programme quotas. Ofcom doesn't regulate EPG's outside of its jurisdiction, it's up to the local broadcasting authority, in this case the French CSA, to decide that an "Adult Channel" should be in the Children's section of the EPG, that's if they have the legislation and powers to do so. Also remember, Ofcom is a post-broadcast regulator, which means they can only make a decision after it has been broadcasted.

DC Universe animated series - Harley Quinn to premiere on E4 in the UK, although the source doesn't say, premiering it during the Adult Swim block would make a lot of sense: Batwoman Soars onto E4! | Channel 4

Also according to the same press release, DC's Batwoman will premiere on E4.

Has any foreign country gotten Young Justice Outsiders yet? Last time I checked, Teletoon seemed to be the only one.

Today at their press event, WarnerMedia France announces the first European Adult Swim co-production - Dickie, which will be an absurd comedy regarding political correctness.

Hmm, looks like Close Enough will be airing on their version of [AS] too. I know that this is likely because HBO Max is a US-only thing right now, but I wonder if this means that the show (and perhaps other HBO Max content) will get a secondary linear TV run on [AS] here in the states?

The Canadian channel is starting to show signs of weakness. Corus isn't matching the U.S. premiere schedule for originals anymore. Tender Touches Season 3 is MIA as was last night's Decker special. Robot Chicken season 10 is still running at the same time, though.

Corus: if it's broken, don't fix it.

I finished the final issue of Gilda And Meek (Gilda And Meek #33 "Dark Child: Part Two: The Pilot, Un-Iverse #47) today. I had been planning it for 30 years, and it ended exactly the way it did in my fifteen-year-old head. This is a milestone I NEVER expected to reach. Huge day for me.
