What's with AS and backing terrible shows?

I just don't get why AS insists on green-lighting terrible shows and then seemingly fighting to keep them on the air as long as possible.

 

I've sat here the past half hour and have seen not one but two absolutely vile programs, those being Frankenhole and Check It Out.  What's even more disturbing is these are the SECOND season of this garbage.  I can't remember the last time I've gotten a laugh out of an AS original show.  Frankenhole literally is so bad I stop paying attention and forget what the hell it is!

 

They cancelled great shows like Frisky Dingo, The Brak Show, and Space Ghost to stick with this kind of crap?

Unfortunately, yes! You have probably been watching AS as long as I have and I am sure we can agree they are probably selling out too much to keep us interested.

Huh.. I actually love both of these shows though. Personally the original content is the only as stuff I enjoy, I couldn't care less about Family Guy or anime reruns (not knocking anybody that likes that stuff, just not my cup of tea)

Oh sure, I have to sit here all depressed that I won't get to see the Steve Brule premier cuz I don't have access to a TV, and meanwhile you not only get the privilege of watching it, but then you get to complain relentlessly on the Internet afterwards? Those are like my two favorite things, and I only got to do one of them tonight!

What is it that you don't like about Frakenhole? I agree with you on the Check It Out. No offense to John C. Reilly but he's better as a Supporting Character than a Starring Character.

The best shows are always short lived.

Like my new best friend krispynoodlez above, I enjoy both those shows. I'm sorry that Adult Swim chooses to air different shows that don't appeal to everyone all the time.

These kinds of threads have been around since AS aired Squidbillies, 12 Oz. Mouse, and Perfect Hair Forever. Adult Swim has changed its programming, but its detractors have not.

I would rather not eat for an entire week than sit through 5 minutes of either of those shows.

 

I kid you not, and I must say I don't know if I should praise you for the strength to endure the worst shows humanity has invented, or blacklist you because there is something wrong with u for being able to endure them for a 20 seconds or more..

 

but that u agree with the entire world that the shows that adult swim is "producing" is the worst thing mankind has ever produced... well i don't think you are alone..

I watch adult swim because of Bleach. Everyone in my school watches Bleach.

It also proves that he's probably not in AS's target demo if everyone in his school watches a show targeted towards middle and high schoolers (not that adults can't or shouldn't enjoy Bleach).

You are not remiss in saying that, but I wouldn't get any more specific than that if I were you.

ToonDude, I don't know if it's the poor acting or the story. Frankenhole just doesn't excite me.

it may not be exciting but I sure wouldn't call Frankenhole 'terrible.' Dino etc just really loves character humor, which is a tough sell on a network that airs Family Guy's snappy non-sequiturs.

Go for it. And don't forget to leave your tv on another channel. What's a hunger strike if the beast is still being fed?
