    While checking my tv listings I found out that..... Cartoon Network has changed the weekday U.S. schedule for "Transformers Animated". The series, which used to air twice each weekday morning in a one hour block, now airs only once each day. "Transformers Animated" airs Monday through Friday at 6:00 a.m./5:00 a.m. central. Currently, the weekend time slot remains the same.

    Noticed that starting last Monday I think. I'm actually pretty happy they did that, because now they won't blow through the entire current run of episodes every two weeks or so. (OK, more like two and a half at five days a week.)

    While it's a horrible time slot for you.. It's actually great for the kids getting up for school. They can watch it while they eat breakfast and wait for the bus.



    And as a kid I was always up watching the 6am cartoons.

    When I was a kid the best cartoons usually aired early. I guess that is still the case. Anyways, the 6:00am time slot for Cartoon Network is usually the "death" slot. Not good news for Transformers Animated.

    i just think the way cn handles TFA is terrible. i know kids like it because i've seen kids lugging around TFA figs when i go out to and stuff and the figs are always selling well at my local targets. i don't understand why whenever i turn to cn, it's always either the ben 10 show or some other animated show i've never seen. it wouldn't hurt them to air TFA in the afternoon when kids are going to be awake, it would only help them. being an older teen, i would always wake up too late on saturdays to watch new episodes and couldn't watch the ONE re-run because of church on sunday. if they aired it during the day, it would gain more viewers and then season 3 wouldn't be on the edge.

    just my opinion.

    Seriously this is the death slot, CN really needs to get their act together. Remember the last good TF ratings they got? Armada, and it ran in the afternoon with the old toonami. Its a shame CN has gotten way kiddier and moved toonami out of 4pm to one day in the evening. oh well, they continue to do this and TF series will continue to die. They arent reaching a good audience any time that early on any day. It needs to be like an after school show, but all of their own crap takes up the schedule.

    Well, when school starts, I can watch an episode as I get ready and eat, as said before.
    The timeslot's not that bad.

    It's really not that bad of a slot. We don't even know if TFA is continuing anyway. They haven't picked up the show for a third season yet.
