Taken from FUNimation Blog, ANN, and FUNi's Facebook blog:
"Dragon Ball Z Kai sets new record as highest-rated series premiere in network's history."
“Nicktoons also posted its highest-rated and most-watched May with total viewers (+18%), K6-11 (+33% in rating), B6-11 (+27% in delivery), T9-14 (+32% in delivery) and B9-14 (+25% in rating). Nicktoons record-setting performance was driven by the premiere of Dragon Ball Z Kai (Monday, May 24, 8–9 p.m. ET), which set a new record as the highest-rated series premiere in the network’s history with total viewers, T9-14 and B9-14. ”

I think they just repeat the Saiyan saga on Disney or Nickelodean in the US.

Nickolodeon is running "Dragonball Z Kai". Which is just DB Kai with a Z in it....

But yea. On Nickolodeon it is the Cut version but the DVD I got from Netflix swears and has gore. Bardock is even at the beginning of the show as well.

Kai is good. I'll probably pick up the DVDs eventually since I like to support good stuff. Yea it's gonna be like 90 eps shorter I think and cut out most of the filler. Can't wait for subbed eps 55 and 56 come out. Future Trunks, mecha frieza, and king cold :p Never really watched DBZ because it was so damn long, but DBKai is mostly action/comedy :)

Guys, there are no filler episodes. DBZ Kai will only have 110 episodes if I'm correct, and they have right now aired the beginning of the Android Saga i.e Dr. Gero still. Right now the episode count is at 60. What it differs from more, is that new audio has been recorded and many old ugly things have had their touch ups. This is DBZ as it was meant to be seen... really.

There aren't absolutely zero filler episodes perse. They took like 1.5 eps to cover everyone returning from namek, everyone getting ressurected, Goku refusing to come back right away, and Vegeta leaving in the capsule corp ship.

Is it obvious that it's gone? How are the transitions now that the fillers are gone?
