WORK IN PROGRESS

This is a [mostly] thorough timeline and guide to Home Movies’ production, initial run and rerun broadcast and ratings history on UPN, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block, and Adult Swim as its own channel space-sharing network. I tried to get as much information I could from old VHS tapes, fansites, forums, press releases, etc., but many of the places in which this information was accessible has since been shut down or gone defunct (the infamous Adult Swim Message Board being one of them). So although, I’ve acquired most of the details I could, there are still (especially the ratings data), several gaps in time where figures that were once published somewhere on the web are now no longer accessible. The exact details of Home Movies’ broadcast and ratings history include, but are by no means limited to what has been presented on this page.  ==Timeline

1998

December 17, UPN announces that they have picked up “Home Movies” for 13 episodes in April 1999 in a press release.

1999:

UPN, at that point desperate for young male viewers, launches a bizarre series of unfortunately lowbrow commercials, bus advertisements in Soup2Nut’s hometown of Boston and ad in the New York Times prominently featuring an image of Jason with snot dripping out of his nose in an attempt to wrangle in that demographic.

2000

February 2000, Adult Swim buys the rights to Home Movies from UPN

Late 2000, Executives at Cartoon Network begin planning and preparation for what would become Adult Swim.  test run x programs 

Rumors are that Home Movies also aired on ABC’s Saturday Morning block, though, this is probably getting it confused with the Science Court program which was created by the same people.


Late 2002:

Adult Swim orders Home Movies for fourth season, though is having doubts about continuing the series (as confirmed by Loren Bouchard)
