Because YOU Demanded It! Naruto Shippuden on TV [Updated] Posted Tuesday, September 29, 2009, 7:12AM by Nobuyuki
"Just not on Cartoon Network.

Viz Media has announced that Naruto Shippuden has been acquired by Disney-ABC Cable Networks Group for debut on their Disney XD television channel beginning in October. The actual premiere date has not yet been announced. Daikun informs us that the premiere is set for October 28th at 8:30 PM.

Disney XD's stated target audience is boys ages 6-14, (what we always hoped a full-time Toonami channel could have been, minus the live-action content) and it is hoped that Shippuden will be successful for them.
