KidsClick, the new broadcast television kids block from Sinclair Broadcast Group, was announced on May 2nd and will launch July 1.
KidsClick, which launches Saturday, July 1, 2017 and airs daily, will feature robust and age-appropriate content available on all screens, including broadcast television, online, pay TV, mobile and over-the-top (OTT).
Our friends (and web hosts) over at toonzone have discovered that a new five-hour E/I programming block is headed for The CW this fall – meaning that Saban Brands’ Vortexx block is over.
Saban Brands announced today plans to provide fans with more Digimon Fusion than ever before! Following its fall 2013 debut on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons, starting Jan. 25, the animated series and sixth season of the hugely successful Digimon franchise will join the Vortexx on The CW lineup, airing every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. EST/PST. With exciting new fusion powers and endless battle possibilities, Digimon Fusion is the perfect addition to the Vortexx on The CW block.
In addition to B-Daman Crossfire, The CW’s Vortexx block will also add The Adventures of Chuck and Friends and The Spectacular Spider-Man to their Saturday morning line-up starting August 17.
The anime series, B-Daman CrossFire will premiere on CW’s Vortexx Saturday morning block on August 17, 2013 at 10:30 am.
The new programs making their way onto the 5-hour kids television block will include Digimon Fusion, Spectacular Spider-Man, Sendokai Champions and Bolts & Blip.
In an advertisement on today’s edition of Cynopsis Kids, Vortexx announced it will be adding repeats of The Spectacular Spider-Man as well as premieres of Digimon Fusion and a new series Bolts & Blip this fall.
Vortexx on The CW, an affiliate of Saban Brands, today announced The New Adventures of Nanoboy, an Educational and Informational (E/I) program, will make its way onto the kids programming block this Saturday, March 9. The series will be featured with back-to-back episodes at 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
Late last week, TV schedules updated to show that Nicktoons was not airing Yu-Gi-Oh! this week, as they had announced and promoted previously. On-air promos were gone by late last week, but the show page on Nicktoons.com continued to say “Premieres January 14 at 9pm ET” up until this morning.
Transformers Prime, which airs on The Hub and is produced by Hasbro, will join Saban Brands’ Vortexx programming block on The CW starting Saturday, December 8.
The CW’s Saturday morning Vortexx block (run by Saban Brands) made their first schedule change last week (September 22) by replacing Cubix at 7am with a second Rescue Heroes (which also airs at 7:30am). That makes up the block’s required E/I hour.
CBS and Cookie Jar Entertainment present the new children’s program schedule premiering Saturday, Sept. 22 on the CBS Television Network. The three-hour E/I-compliant programming block, exclusive to broadcast television, is comprised of the new show “Liberty’s Kids,” plus new episodes of returning favorites “The Doodlebops” and repeat episodes of “Busytown Mysteries.”
The series premiere of WWE Saturday Morning Slam on August 25 (CW, 10-10:30am) was Saturday morning’s (7am-12pm) most watched program on CW among total viewers and the following kids demos: Kids under 18, Kids 2-5, Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11, Kids 9-14, Boys under 18, Boys 2-5, Boys 2-11, Boys 6-11, Girls under 18, Girls 2-11, Girls 6-11, Girls 9-14 and Female Teens (F12-17).
Saturday mornings on broadcast TV used to be kid central, until about 2002. That’s when Saban exited the kid biz and sold to Disney. That’s also when CBS went Nick, ABC went Disney Channel, Fox went Box (4Kids) and Kids’ WB was the only ‘90s stronghold left.
