More people gets their news from...Oh!

There are arguments on many blogs about the political-orientations and relative audience size of CNN and Fox News Channel.

Actually, among adults 18-39, the Cartoon Network has higher ratings than either CNN or FNC.

It's all about Adult Swim...
if you watch [Adult Swim] and you're over 24 your head will explode :)

-- [Adult Swim] is the late night programming on the Cartoon Network, Nielsen treats it as a separate cable channel (just like Nickelodeon/Nick at Night), it is targeted to college students, I don't know why Adult Swim is usually in brackets

That makes sense Scooby Doo never made me depressed although it did make me look closely at pictures to make sure the eyes didn't move.
oddly, Teletubbies depress me, and that baby scares me

It hasn't been the same since they took off Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
SGC2C is available on DVD -- it was on Cartoon Network, then moved to [Adukt Swim] -- don't know why they killed it off, but I believe it is see in syndication in other parts of the globe
