According to some recent grid updates, it appears King of the Hill has been completely removed from all of its usual slot on June 30th and July 1st, being replaced by extra reruns of the Cleveland Show and Bob's Burgers. Though the grids haven't been updated past July 1st yet, I'm getting the feeling that [as]'s rights to the show may have lapsed, but we'll see for sure once we get some new schedules.

I'm disappointed that that's what AS does when King of the Hill is gone. More of The Cleveland Show? Has anyone ever asked for that? They should put something like The Brak Show, Harvey Birdman, Home Movies, Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, or The Venture Bros. in that slot. Or perhaps do a nice rotation every night through their older originals that haven't seen the light of day in a while?

King of the Hill is one of the more family friendly shows on Adult Swim, it was a good way to separate the CN viewers with the AS viewers while being gentle.

It definitely will be a shame to see KotH go from the schedule, it has a lot of episodes for reruns and it is one of the few non McFarlane Fox shows that had a good run.

I would be sad if King of the Hill is gone, since no one else seems to air it and the show also doesn't have any streaming (I do have some seasons on DVD though) . Also. for more Cleveland Show, nooooooo! I'd rather have a double of Bob's Burgers than that. (I do like Bob's Burgers)

Yeah, I noticed very recently that the show was completely purged off digital distribution (apparently well over a year ago too, after a little searching). I have no idea what that's about.

But yes, the DVD sets (especially the early seasons) are fairly easy to obtain if you look on Amazon or Ebay.

Out of curiosity, I thought I'd check the show on Adult Swim's website. The final season is up there, but that's it.
Has KOTH's streaming always (or at least recently) been this limited on the website? I rarely go on there, so I'm not sure.

I believe so. Though I've been there equally as rarely, so I might be wrong.

If KOTH really is leaving, I think it would be really wise to stick Dragon Ball Kai + Super reruns in the 8:00 weekday slot. Not only Dragon Ball proven to have good replay numbers (when it aired at 8-9pm on Saturdays), but it would a great transition from Cartoon Network show like KOTH. Even if AS only has the rights to the Final chapters and Super, that over a 120+ episode backlog they're sitting on. Seriously, I think it's time for some weeknight anime again, we really dont need 3 hours of primetime devoted to MacFarlane shows, do we?

They put the recent episodes they've aired on the website and on demand then switch out they've never had the whole series on there.

I don't want it completely removed...heck, that'd be the end of an Adult Swim era (going back to January 2009, that's how long KotH has been on Adult Swim). I just wanted it moved from being the starting episode each night.

And I sure don't want The Cleveland Show to replace it.

I'd rather they do reruns of Samurai Jack (all seasons, 1 thru 5) in that timeslot...or do weekday "Dragon Ball Super" or weekday "Naruto Shippuden".

My Cable guide still shows it on July 2nd , but not on it's normal double airing on Sunday the 1st.
Does the one on July 2 have a generic description about the whole show instead of an episode? If so, that’s blank placeholder. I don’t think the schedule past July 1 has been released yet.

The whole Cartoon Network does that day so I guess it hasn't been updated that far yet.

Cleveland better not take all of KotH's slots if it leaves. People have had enough of that show.

Can't CN just take the 8 p.m. hour back already?

Adult Swim took down China, IL from Hulu and put it up on their website. Wonder how long this purge will take...

Also, could you imagine if CN did the same with Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Chowder, and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and put them on Boomerang (SVOD)?
How is it that the best kids animated show on Netflix aren't by the people who worked or Spectacular Spiderman or Avatar but freaggin Hilda
