I'm not completely sure about this, but maybe the shifting mindset among networks might've affected the way anime shows are being treated. I mean, it's hard for me to figure it out and I wanted to know what your thoughts are on it.
I took a look at the link, and I red about the stuff, it seems interesting. As for the quote, well, they make good points about the channels. I always looked at MTV as a rock channel. Now, its just rap, some rock, and a few animated shows on there, such as "Celebrity Deathmatch", "Beavis and Butthead" and "Spongebob Squarepants" although I seen Spongebob on that channel a few times, a year ago. I don't see there anymore. Sy-Fy is a scientific channel, but yet they show ghost hunting shows, some anime on Monday nights. It's not really a scientific shows. The History channel and the Discovery channel is more of a scientific channel. Cartoon Network, I can't really comment on that. Their purpose is to show the best cartoons for kids. Now, there are some reality shows on there. It's not a channel for cartoons only, anymore. Same goes to Nickeolodean and Disney company. I can't fully agree with the quote, but anime seems to be in only selective/certain channels. Those channels dont even live up to their description fully. And, they tend to be aired late night.
