* Every other week on FXX, the channel seems to love showing the depressing ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'', particularly before marathons of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' reruns.

*** By contrast, the Ice Hockey World Championships (its counterpart for professional players) is not considered to be as important in North America as it is elsewhere because it [[DuelingShows falls during the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs]]. Top American and Canadian players typically remain committed to their NHL teams if they make the playoffs, and a chance to make the men's national team tends to be a consolation prize for losing in the first round or not making the playoffs at all. This worked to Canada's advantage in 2015, as star player Sidney Crosby was able to join the national team when Pittsburgh got eliminated in round 1. They [[CurbStompBattle promptly crushed every opponent they met]], including Russia in the final: critics were quick to point out that Canada's dream team would be impossible to form in the NHL because it was ''way'' over the salary cap. At the same time, Canadian viewership of the NHL playoffs are relative to how many Canadian teams remain in the NHL playoffs, so their attention may shift to the IIHF tournament if there are fewer teams to root for.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has ''three'' timeslots on Adult Swim's Saturday night lineup as of the August 2017 schedule - a full hour kicking off the regular Adult Swim block, as well as a regular slot on Toonami. No other anime has gotten this kind of treatment (at least since Toonami returned).

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' for Creator/KidsWB. Sometimes they would show nothing but the show to promote a special or new movie, and they'd sometimes show it for three hours at a time. Cartoon Network, the show's current channel, doesn't do this nearly as often.
** Kids WB's adoration for all things ''Pokemon'' even spilled into their promotional attempts for other shows in their lineup. During a ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''-themed [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]] event, viewers were encouraged to send in their predictions of the future to be read on the air. One of the more notable entries: "In the future, Pokemon will be on every channel all day long." The daydreams of someone truly obsessed with the series, or an early example of epic trolling?

* ''Anime/SonicX'' was absolutely beloved by 4kids; even as their block changed identities, moved to different channels, and cycled through shows, ''Sonic X'' always had a spot on the lineup, despite having gone through its entire run dozens of times on Saturday morning television. Furthermore, as of July 1, 2017, Sinclair Broadcast Group's "[=KidsClick=]" syndicated block has picked the show up and given it slots on both the weekday and weekend lineups, despite it being ''fourteen years old''.

Justified, [[NoHoperRepeat since viewership was way down]] (most everyone who's watching TV on Thanksgiving is watching football anyway) and they could write off advertising and let most of their employees take the holiday off. That said Cartoon Network has been known to flood their timeslots with ''Iron Giant'' on other holidays too, such as Memorial Day, supposedly because it's Ted Turner's favorite movie.

* ''[[Anime/DragonBallKai Dragon Ball Z Kai]]'' was this for Creator/Nicktoons, with anywhere from three to six hours worth being shown on any given day in total. It got to the point where Nicktoons began airing the original ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' movies in an almost completely uncut format, with the only real edit being a Hitler scene in ''Anime/DragonBallZ: Fusion Reborn''. All blood, violence, and profanity was kept, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar at a]] [[PrecisionFStrike TV-Y7-FV]] [[AvertedTrope rating]] no less.
