This isn't the numbers yet, but: [url]http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2013/03/19/weekly-ratings-notes-for-adult-swim-cartoon-network-tbs-tnt-trutv-cougar-town-dallas-southland-lizard-lick-towing-nba-basketball-more/173997/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Tvbythenumbers+%28TVbytheNumbers%29[/url]

The movie premiere of Evangeleon 1:11 increased by double and triple-digits across adults 18-34, 18-24 & 18-49 vs. the same time period year ago.


This certainly sounds very good, and if the numbers are good then they might pick up 2.22.

The ratatoings are in:

12:00am Bleach 1,197,000
12:30am Naruto 1,196,000
1:00am Evangeleon 1.11 959,000

Toonami responded to a Tumblr question if they were satisfied with Eva's performance as such: "We were. It was a solid showing that gives us something to build off of as we think about what our NEXT movie might be…. :)"

... Bebop Movie re-run? Fullmetal Alchemist film (either or)? Paprika?
End of EVA? ... NAH!
Seriously though, the last thing I would expect Toonami to do is to present EVA 2.22. But I doubt that "awesome" film will be shown. :tongue: .

Craig Ferguson might be a better choice. Mari would go <Ooh> and <Crikey> and <Whassacumminago> every few seconds.

Going by my experiences with US television showing people with British regional accents, if she were voiced by, say, a Geordie lass in her native dialect, not only would she be likely to use words that aren't in the seven you can't say on TV, but she'd be sub-titled anyway.

Here's a good quote, then:

I was just doing some quick research on this and now it really has me wondering. From my understanding, technically on American television the hours of around 12-6 am are considered "safe harbor" and aren't legally regulated by the FCC unless the content is "obscene" and not just "indecent". So I guess the question of airing 2.22 comes down to the argument of whether the swearing legally counts as obscene or indecent. This of course opens up a whole new amount of questions. Is it the amount of swearing that pushes it across the line? If so, would simply censoring 1 in every 3 swear word from Mari solve the problem? Although it doesn't bode well that according to what I read most networks won't even broadcast indecent content during safe harbor due to fear of viewer complaints ruining the network's reputation and, thus, its ability to make advertisement revenue.

My god, censorship is confusing.

Well the 2.22 dub has Mari saying "fucking" so that's going to get bleeped out, but besides that, all jokes aside, I don't think much will be edited out.
