What are the odds of Blue Sky getting dismantled/sold back to Meledandri?

I wonder what this means for their syndicated cartoons like Family Guy, Simpsons, and Bob's Burgers. Will Adult Swim still be allowed to air Seth's shows (like how Nick still airs the George Lopez show), or will Disney take away those rights and give them to one of their own networks?

I've had this same thought. Adult Swim's ratings are in the toilet in general compared to previous years and Disney has it in their power to flush 'em down the drain.

Yeah, if AS loses the rights to the Fox shows, then they'll most likely be in serious trouble. The only thing they'd really have that brings in ratings is Rick and Morty and that only has 31 episodes.

[adult swim]'s current ratings are fine, television in general does not attract the numbers have used to so the bar for success has changed. That said, FOX shows are [adult swim]'s bread-and-butter. If they lose FOX shows they'll definitely have to shrink and give the primetime hours back to CN.

Streaming on demand is the future, cord cutting is a thing. Cable TV sure does have a lot of competition on it's hand. If anything, I have seen people use that as the reason as to why Cartoon Network replays Teen Titans Go all the time due to how it's to attract kids to the TV, while still pushing their app/website to watch the latest episodes of their latest shows.
