Why're you using a programming block as a potential indicator of quality? Don't these channels make contracts with the anime studios long before the first episode is even made? If so, you can't really blame them for shows that fail to live to their potential or turn out bad. A much better potential indicator of quality would be talented anime production staff members, whether it be the director, animation director, or screenplay writer.
Also, I thought Thermae Roma was only getting a live action. This is the first I'm hearing of an anime adaptation. Probably another show most people are going to like except me, I fear.
