Adult Swim throws fans broadband lifeline

(Posted September 9, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programing block does not air Friday nights. For those who can't bear an evening without "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" or "Robot Chicken," logging on to the Internet will assuage their withdrawal symptoms.

Starting September 16, http://www.AdultSwim.com will offer full-length episodes of these and other programs in an initiative Cartoon Network is calling Friday Night Fix.

Each week between 11 p.m.-6 a.m. ET, a selection of current and fan-requested shows will be available for free viewing. There also will be previews of episodes scheduled to debut the next Sunday.


AdultSwim.com recently launched a programming-themed social network called the Adult Swim Fan Collective. More than 70,000 members have joined in less than a month, said Adult Swim New Media creative director Chip Duffey. The site plans to add ringtones and additional downloadable music in the near future, he said.
