Scientifically accurate flipper

Animation Domination was an animated programming block which originally aired from May 1, 2005 until September 21, 2014 on the Fox network. The block aired on Sunday evenings through the entirety of that night's primetime schedule (unless preempted, usually by sports telecasts).

Animation Domination debuted on Fox on May 1, 2005, in time for the last sweeps period of the 2004–05 television season. The first program to originate on the block was American Dad!, although its "pilot" aired as a Super Bowl lead-out program on February 6, 2005. Rounding out the Animation Domination lineup alongside American Dad! were The Simpsons (the longest-running cartoon on Fox and the network's first primetime animated series, which predated the lineup by 16 years), King of the Hill (which predated the lineup by eight years) and Family Guy (which predated the lineup by six years, and was revived as a series three years after its 2002 cancellation as a result of newfound popularity through reruns on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim lineup and sales of the first, second, and third-season episodes on DVD).

Beginning in the fall of 2014, the Animation Domination block was replaced with Sunday Funday with the addition of live-action comedies Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which moved to Sunday night for its second season), freshman series Mulaney (which was canceled in early 2015), and, as of March 2015, the Will Forte sitcom, The Last Man on Earth. This marks the first time that the network has regularly aired live-action comedies on Sundays (outside of burn-offs of failed weeknight series) since 2005.

Fox shows currently included in the Animation Station lineup are American Dad!, Bob's Burgers and Family Guy. Former Animation Domination shows have also been featured in this block, namely The Cleveland Show and King of the Hill, as well as former Fox cartoon Futurama.

    Animation Domination High-Def

    On January 8, 2013 Fox announced that it would launch an adult animation spin-off to its Sunday evening block called Animation Domination High-Definition. It originally broadcast on Saturday evenings for 90 minutes from 11:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. local time in most markets. It was later reduced to 11:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. on September 7, 2013 with the 12:00 a.m. half-hour being given back to its owned-and-operated stations and affiliates to carry other programming. Some of its affiliates delayed the block by 30 minutes to an hour to run late evening newscasts (sports overruns occasionally caused further delays).

    The last edition of ADHD on Fox aired on March 5, 2016, with the new Lonely Island sketch comedy series Party Over Here to premiere in the slot on March 12.
