Adult Swim's Hit Show Robot Chicken Could Be Cancelled

robot chicken logo cancelled

Rumors are circulating that Robot Chicken, an Emmy Award-winning show on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, could be cancelled after the fall season. I couldn't find any confirmation that Adult Swim will pull the plug on the popular, sketch comedy series written by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, but perhaps the show has reached its peak audience.

The title of the show implies a childish premise, but it appeals to the 25-40 -year old market. It's a compilation of parodies and sketches that combine late 70's and 80s references with pop culture (I.E. President Bush dreaming about being Luke Skywalker and Optimus Prime of Transformers performing a prostate cancer Public Service Announcement). Regardless of the rumor's validity, It's a valuable lesson in marketing. As Nick at Nite learned. You can only gear your product to a niche audience,for so long before it needs some revising and tweaking to preserve its appeal.

We'll keep you posted on the latest developments.

Seth green and his team should just do their own network. There are a lot of undertone messages that air a hint of hard truth at every aspect of our society.
I wouldn't be surprised if they got attention beyond corporate level and got brought down in a quiet smear campaign.
You can almost see the footsteps of the men behind the curtain.
They do not want free-thinker's outside of this propaganda machine all around us.
It's a conspiracy man...
damn..
I am so high right now.

They did something similar about being "canceled" at the end of each season so far. I guess we won't know till season 4 airs.

Robot Chicken should be canceled! It sickens me to my stomach. How dare the guys who made dare to sink that low?

To those who think Robot Chicken should last forever, you're delusional! That's the one of the worst shows ever to be created. If you don't like my opinion, deal with it!

But if you love that Adult Swim series so much, you can go bye bye with it for all I care.

If there's a law against creating that pathetic program, I'd use it to sue the jerks who made the show.

So death to Robot Chicken!
