FOX's repeats of its Sunday Animation Domination line-up have frequently led to Sunday ratings wins for the network. Tonight, its previewing its new Saturday late-night animated series. Taking a cue from Adult Swim. both Axe Cop and High School US!A are only fifteen minutes long. Both shows were just promoted at Comic-Con, but overall awareness may be low. Though broadcast competition will be minimal, they will Face Off against some cable powerhouses including True Blood and Dexter. So how do you think they will fare tonight? Make your predictions!

    Doesn’t appeal to me.

    Nothing can top the current Animation Domination shows unless you’re Seth MacFarlane or Matt Groening!

  • brutony!

    Well, yeah Phil, those shows are Powerhouses-never heard of these, and I watch Animation Domination weekly!

  • BenA

    1.0 for both

  • JoshuaCanada

    I’m really excited for Axe cop. I’ve seen nothing about HS USA though. I predict about a 1.2 for both

  • Anthony

    I think Axe Cop will do mid ones, but HS USA will do poorly (haven’t seen much advertisement for it at all).

  • Stormer

    Watched them both. Sorry I did.

    Axe Cop is poorly written and animated. High School USA is an Archie Comics ripoff. Neither are at all funny.

    Fox owes me my time back.

    I agree. Axe Cop was kind of all over the place. I believe the creators did it on purpose trying to imitate a specific story telling/comedic style often seen in shows on Adult Swim, but it just didn’t work.

    High School USA was definitely the stronger of the two (which isn’t really saying much), but still wasn’t very funny at all.

    Fox is gonna have their hands full trying to get this block to stick, since I can’t see these to rating well in their late night slots and currently they are the only shows in the block (the other half hour is repeats).

    I liked Axe Cop, but High School USA didn’t do much for me. Axe Cop was random, but I like random

    Keep in mind, Axe Cop is written by a 5 year old and then illustrated by his older brother. I think for the show they had other writers try and clean up the storyline. That said I predict somewhere from a .9 to a 1.1

    Well, these were supposed to be previews for their Saturday late night animation lineup, but while I give FOX credit for doing something different in late night, I don’t think these shows will catch on. They want to take on Adult Swim really badly, but these may actually be better suited for that network.

  • hanp

    I saw briefly both shows. Not good at all imho.

    I say 0.7 ratings.

  • ToXiX

    Axe Cop was so awful I didn’t even stick around for HSU

  • Downzy

    Axe Cop is written by a five year old… Not kidding. It’s pretty humorous like it’s comic.
