Disney's not gonna license those shows out, especially when they could build their own Adult Swim-esque block to counter program.
Whatever. I wouldn't know what plans Disney has for these shows, but once they get complete control over their cable airings, they're going to corner that market.This would work best if FXX was the sole Disney network airing adult animation including first-run and rerun shows. This means The Simpsons, Family Guy and Bob's Burgers all have to ditch Freeform. Any adult animated shows being planned for Freeform also go to FXX instead. Furthermore, Fox animated shows currently licensed to Comedy Central should be moved to FXX at the earliest opportunity.
I think WB cares more about HBOMax at the moment. Adult Swim needs to partner with other studios/creators to make reliable exclusive content they can evergreen. And faster.As for what AS can do, perhaps WB Animation should produce adult animated sitcoms on ABC, CBS and NBC. WB has a strong relationship with CBS, which airs many sitcoms produced by the studio (most of them from Chuck Lorre). Then if any of these series hit 100 episodes, they can go on AS.
Like Daikun said, the latter.This is something I've wondered ever since hearing the news that AS was to lose their entire FOX lineup next year - Is there any possibility that they might come back at some point? Or was it pretty much confirmed that they would be going permanently...?
Possibly, and I doubt they'd change it....but look at what ViacomCBS is doing with all their shows switching around Paramount/MTV/VH1. With At&T now, theres more money to work with and they want content to go out. I think Conan's niche audience works better with AS viewers who are younger...interesting guests and concepts. It also would allow him a bit more creative freedom.I think Conan's contract is with TBS. Same for American Dad. It may not be easy to move the shows over nor warranted.
