TBS fine toons its sked with ‘Futurama,’ ‘Guy’

Skeins will also continue Cartoon Network latenight run

TBS has picked up animated skeins “Futurama” and “The Family Guy” to beef up its summer afternoon programming.

Shows, launching Monday, will air weekdays at 2 and 2:30 p.m., respectively.

Both skeins will continue to air on Turner-owned sister cabler Cartoon Network during latenight animation block Adult Swim, which airs 11 p.m.- 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.

Move comes amid TBS’ aggressive push for young adult auds, led by the addition of its Non-Stop Comedy Block and repeat airings of “Dawson’s Creek.”

” ‘Futurama’ and ‘The Family Guy’ have proven to be stellar hits among adults 18-34 for the latenight Cartoon Network Adult Swim crowd, and we are confident they will prove equally popular during the afternoons on TBS,” said exec VP-chief operating officer Steve Koonin.

Created by Matt Groening (“The Simpsons”), “Futurama” follows the adventures of a pizza delivery guy stuck 1,000 years in the future.

“The Family Guy,” featuring the voices of Seth McFarlane and Seth Green, chronicles the lives of the Griffin family, whose family dog is the most well-spoken member of the clan.
