G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers Prime migrate to Saturday night

Well, even with eleven more new episodes of G.I. Joe: Renegades, the fun Friday evening tradition has gone by the wayside, as both G.I. Joe: Renegades and Transformers Prime are moving to Saturdays to showcase all of their new episodes.

Transformers Prime launches with premier content on April 9th, while G.I. Joe: Renegades moves to April 16th.  Transformers will start the action hour at 7:00pm, with Renegades picking up at 7:30pm.

I’m not sure of the reason for the movie, and am hesitant to blame ratings, considering Prime is a ratings behemoth (according to The Hub) but I can’t argue that there is less competition on Saturday nights, I suppose, and the chances of the younger kids being home is better.  Time will tell.  As we are all painfully aware, it’s too late to save G.I. Joe: Renegades, but maybe it can at least go out on a positive note.

Thanks to The Terror Drome and Nick and More for the information.
