I hope they consider airing the older shows during the day as well, or at the very least sometime before 9-10:00 PM (i.e., "bedtime"). I don't deal with the idea that only older viewers are interested in older shows. I think The Hub should give these shows a chance. I don't know about anyone else, but to me, it doesn't matter when a show is made as long as it's a good (if not necessarily great) and interesting show to watch. Also, when I say older shows, I mean the animated ones to be exact (all two of them at the moment). That said:
Wow, this network is starting to remind me of old school Nickelodeon.
Kids' programming during most of the day, classic TV shows late at night.
Live action sitcoms are one thing, but when animation is involved, that changes the rules, IMHO. I'm personally willing to give the original TF and G.I. Joe series a try if they were to air them either during the day or just before bedtime hours. Those, and any other classic animated shows they decide to pick up. I don't really like the idea of not being able to watch a show I might like simply because it's past my bedtime...
EDIT: I forgot about Fraggle Rock. That's an older show, and that's airing during the day. However, I still hope they'll consider shows like the aforementioned original TF and G.I. Joe series and others for airings during the day (or at least before bedtime).
The schedule for the 11th seems to be a lot better than the schedule for the 10th in my opinion, still, I'll be there to support the network on it's first day to at least get a feel for it and see what it's like, I'm hoping for better programming in the near future since I'm not too excited for new GI Joe and Transformers, in fact, the 2 shows I'm siked for the most would be Deltora Quest and Batman Beyond.
I'll be watching The Hub most of the day up until the Ben 10: Ultimate Alien premier, and all in all I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what this network has up it's sleeve.
I would rather like the network to pick up films that we haven't seen before on any of the kid oriented networks. It just makes me think that it will return again on Cartoon Network or even FX which is catered to just about everyone in terms of programming.
They're already getting into the habbit of mini-marathoning shows and airing multiple episodes of the same show throughout the day much like their competition does, I was kind of hoping for something different with the scheduling from The Hub but I guess I was silly to think something like that.
Since it's not a 100% official schedule then I'm still kind of hoping that the schedule changes and becomes more diverse, but I'm not going to hold my breath on it or anything since I've been let down by other networks before.
Update: the "Hub Sneak Preview" is of G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers Prime.
Also, Discovery Communications is doing a bit of corporate synergy for those who don't have the Hub. "Cosmic Quantum Ray" will be airing all next week on the Science Channel. Animal Planet will be airing an hour of "The Twisted Whiskers Show" they day before 10/10. TLC will also be airing "Family Game Night" on 10/9 as well.
Man, I'm shocked at how many older shows they're airing on the Hub, but it does make a lot of sense, actually. Since some of their big hitters (Transformers Prime, G.I.Joe Renegades) don't seem to have release dates yet, supplementing the lineup with lots of classics is a great way to keep the network afloat until they start rolling out all the new content.
Atomic Betty Redux, Atomic Betty (and the rest of the crew) finally matured since the last time we met them. Vaguely, Betty hasn't looked like she changed or aged one bit. Maybe in 2011 or 2012, Atomic Betty Redux will occur on TeleToon and The Hub. Can't wait for that to happen!
Wow! MiB:TAS and Old school Batman kinda came out of left field. Not that I mind since it's been ages since I watched Batman on TV and their were several eps. of MiB that I missed back when it aired on KidsWB.
I can leave or take Honey I Shrunk the Kids: the Tv, some were good, some were bad, most were stupid..otherwise Meh.
I honestly didn't think I'd ever see that show again in my lifetime, well not on a non-disney channel anyway.
Yeah... I just watched the end of Peepoodo... And I wish I hadn't. If I'm considered a wuss for liking Milo Murphy's Law. Big City Greens, Summer Camp Island, Clarence, Craig of the Creek, Hilda, Harvey Beaks, Harvey Street Kids and even The Loud House - not to mention LPS (2012, 2018) SO MUCH MORE because at least those shows have some constraint to not be this gross - then I could care less what you think of me.
