Teletoon at Night (formerly known as Teletoon Detour) is the name for the animated programming block targeted towards teen and adult audiences which airs from 9:00 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. EST every night on the Canadian television channel Teletoon. It was launched in September 2002 as The Detour on Teletoon until September 1, 2008 when it was renamed Teletoon Detour. The block was renamed once again in September 2009 to Teletoon at Night. A similar French programming block called "Télétoon la nuit" airs on Teletoon's French sister station called Télétoon.

History

Teletoon Detour 2008-2009 logo

Teletoon at Night (formerly was an amalgamation of the old "The Detour" block, aimed at teenagers, and the former Teletoon Unleashed block, aimed at adults, which had been dropped due to lack of new content).

For the start of the 2006-2007 season, a new Friday night companion block "F-Night" debuted, featuring a slightly different lineup consisting of more of the Adult Swim comedies such as Tom Goes to the Mayor and Squidbillies.

In September 2007, most of the shows that were involved with the "F-Night" block was removed to make room for the F'N Good Movie segment, which now takes up Thurdays and Fridays at 9:30 p.m. EST. A repeat of the same movie usually follow up. The movies in this block involved in this line-up were mostly animated or were derived from comic books and other animated series. A majority of the films were designed to target an older teenage or adult audience, which was the intended target and purpose of the Detour. If the movie didn't fill in its 2 - 2 1/2 hour block, then either the animated shorts on their line-ups or short films from the Animatrix were used to fill up the space. Some movies on The Detour block are live action based on comics or animation, for example the Blade trilogy. This wasn't Teletoon's first time to air non-animated shows or movies, since Teletoon aired the live-action Fireball XL-5 back in the 1997-1998 season.
