Family Guy & American Dad because I guess [as] has connections with MacFarlane and
because if [as] didn't air FG, American Dad and the new episodes of FG wouldn't B around
[as] got KOTH because apparently they can afford the rights and I guess it scores good ratings
[as] only got The Pjs because the rights to it R probably really cheap because nobody likes it

Then why get a show that is next to **BLEEP**? I just want a decent show to keep me at least occupied for a little bit and then come with a hit show, not shows that are soo crappy that I start losing faith for future shows on AS

You do realized that's all subjective, right? I think a lot of people, including me, would argue that that's exactly what they're doing. There are some shows that stick around because they're good enough, like maybe Delocated, and others that are instant classics, like Superjail. There are also a lot of people that hate everything that's come out of [as] over the past few years, but that's really a matter of opinion. It doesn't mean all [as] originals are just plain bad and inevitably failing, just because you don't like them.
As for the FOX syndicated shows, they're pretty much just there for the ratings. That bothers a lot of people, especially when the show doesn't really fit [as]'s style, like KotH, but you kind of just need to understand that they need the money. [as] has been doing pretty fantastic in the ratings lately, and the syndicated shows almost always get the best ratings.

Ratings. Fox shows actually get them. The PJs actually gets them. Yes, it's gotten that bad.
But Titain Maximum should be similar enough to RC. I bet AS gets some strong ratings from that.

They need 2 get rid of KOTH cause that show is already cancelled, they need 2 replace it with somethin
more funny like FUTURAMA.

I know its harsh but is anyone else tired of family guy. The reruns are killing me.
I wish they'd go out on a limb and give Squidbillies or Superjail a full 30 minute slot.

that's exactly why it was picked up. it was probably cheap, and had a decent enough fanbase, so [as] jumped on it before any other stations could.
i like it. it gives a solid base to the more extreme comedy of some of [as]'s other shows
