The Xtacles are here and they need your help!
From the creators of Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021 (70-30 productions) comes the new series the Xtacles. If those two shows are any indication then the Xtacles are in great hands, the only problem is that their premier episode didn’t do so well in the ratings so here’s Mack from 70-30 with a request:
“Hey guys! Mack from 70-30 here. I just wanted to drop in and give you guys a heads up. Basically, we need you to watch the Xtacles again this Friday at midnight (right after Family Guy). Unfortunately, the ratings on Sunday night were not what we’d hoped for. There was a significant drop between Superjail and our show. This is very bad… cancel the show bad. We’re all very excited about the Xtacles and hope to be working on many more episodes, but unless there is a significant bump in the ratings this Friday night these two episodes may be the only you ever see. AS is under a lot of pressure to deliver good ratings with the economy in the shitter, so even though we’re getting a lot of positive feedback from the network, RATINGS are what we need right now. Please email all of your friends and encourage them to watch the Xtacles Friday night at midnight.”
The episode will be airing at midnight eastern time on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network).
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the show:
“The Xtacles is an animated comedy television series created by Matt Thompson. It is a spin-off of the Adult Swim animated series Frisky Dingo, in which the Xtacles, Xander Crews’ private army, take a lead role. The series revolves around the Xtacles’ lack of direction following the abduction of their leader by aliens at the end of Frisky Dingo. They take on random missions from President Stan, who returns from the previous series. The series is currently in production, and premiered its first two episodes on November 9, 2008 at midnight.”
If the quality’s anywhere near Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021 it should be hilarious. That’s right I haven’t watched it yet, but I do have it recorded on my DVR, and I’ll be tuning in this Friday night.
