    Whoa...crazy.

    Hey Charlie, wouldn't it make more sense to put it on 177. Maybe if you weren't holding Viacom hostage providing you with a channel that isn't supposed to exist.

    I'm guessing that 181 was the next closest channel number that wasn't being used. Didn't make much sense to move the two Nick channels AND the Disney channels just to accommodate Cartoon West.

    I'll be the one to ask the question.

    When will the HD feed of this channel start so we can have more stretch-o-vision?

    But they had to move ION to clear 181!

    AND, 177 is Nick GAS, which isn't even supposed to be on the air anymore. It was supposed to become The N a year ago.

    The N would be PERFECT at 181, next to ABC Family.

    They must have really great weed in Colorado.

    Stinks GAS, oops I mean Nick GAS will never go away. Dish refused to remove that waste and make it The-N.

    What I think they are going to do is move ABC Family to 281 and put Cartoon Network East on 180. Who knows then what will go on 176. The N, Noggin I doubt it.

    Regardless of where it is, I can have adult swim on while getting ready for work in the morning. Added benefit, I am on HD Absolute and getting the channel at the moment. (not expecting that to last for long)

    Alright wiseguys, let me try again.

    How is there a Toon West? Do they show mostly cartoons about oranges, traffic jams, rich hippies, and tofu?

    OK, how about a real, non BS answer for your BS question. Toon West is simply a 3 hour delay from Toon East so that the kiddies, and perhaps yourself, can watch an 8AM show at 8 AM instead of 5AM.....

    Howd'ya guess? Actually it's Western showTOONs :p


    But in the realm of seriousness, buyer beware: Adult Swim shows will be on at 7am-9am Eastern... so concerned parents should contemplate hiding the west feed (and childless households don't have to stay up until 12 midnight to catch an episode of Boondocks)
