Naruto Shippuden Airs on Disney XD Tonight - Featured

Disney's attempt to bring in the young male demographic begins in earnest tonight, as the first four episodes of Naruto Shippuden air on the Disney XD channel from 8:30 to 10:30 (check your local listings). The broadcast covers Homecoming, The Akatsuki Makes Its Move, The Results of Training and The Jinchuriki of the Sand.

What will be interesting is how Disney schedules the show going forward. They can't possibly air four episodes a week; the dubbing process just isn't fast enough. In terms of official releases, Viz has only released up through episode 8 so far, so a regular weekly slot seems likely. But that wouldn't give Naruto Shippuden very much initial exposure on the station, so we'll have to wait and see what happens with the scheduling.
