welcome to the [adult swim] Programarama Elimination/Programming Game Thread
extravaganzathon from hell of doom.
first one ever.
the game will include ALL (every single one) show, one-shot, pilot, bump series, and web series that Adult Swim has ever aired either on the network or on the website that I am aware of.
You can vote each hour, meaning you can vote once between 6:00PM and 6:59PM, and once between 7:00PM and 7:59 PM etc.
So you can vote, for example at 4:59 PM and again at 5:01 PM. But you cannot vote at 3:07 PM and again at 3:58 PM
Each time you post you may post two votes. They can't be for the same show. IE, you can't vote +2 for one show or -2 for one show. Your two votes have to be for different shows. Also you may not cast double minus votes. Your post must have at least one
"+" vote to be valid.
You may also vote for an acquisition. IE a show that has never aired on Adult Swim, but you wish to acquire for the block. A show is considered "acquired" when it reaches 100 votes. You may suggest Movies as well as shows.
Votes will be tallied the morning after a round has reached page 5, at which point it will move on to the next folder.
When a show dips far enough below other shows, it will be eliminated from the schedule.
Folder Immunity: The folder in which the traveling game is currently taking place is considered immune from negative votes.
Previous folder: Sealab 2021
Current Folder/Immunity: Xavier Renegade Angel
Next Folder: Frisky Dingo
What ... doth ... life?
Also note there are twists to the game that will reveal themselves
If a movie makes the schedule, it is considered a slot of "adult swim movies" and all movies on the list will be cycled in that slot with priority given to the highest rated.
If a bump series makes the schedule it is considered to have been made into an 11 minute show.
This Adult Swim channel takes place in a fantasy world in which every show ever to have aired on Adult Swim is still within the realm of possibility to air on the block.
check out the list in Betty for the list of sanctioned AS shows (past/present/future):

gonna combine these two games cuz nobody's playing the other one and I like that one better. but don't want to abandon this one entirely either.
basically keep voting, votes will still pretty much count toward the shows in question. I'm going to try to merge these and tweek the rules a tad (the major difference will be, rather than a static list of points, the shows will appear on a schedule grid.
Like the votes cast will be applied to programming the block rather than simply be applied toward a scoreboard/list.
So the OP will be what the schedule currently looks like based on the votes rather than the point list.
It sounds more complicated than it is. Here, lemme do some tweeking and I'll be back.

ps if ppl don't like the changes we'll switch back to straight elim.
pss I have to go do this thing, I'll be back and then I'll do that other thing when I get back.

closing this for a moment, going to retally for the merge (figure out what the combined show points are for both games).
Then I will post the new show list/point totals and the accompanying schedule that represents that.

starting "fresh" with the merged games here
in the Frisky Dingo folder.
rules aren't too different really, read the OP and ask if you have any questions.
