Adult Swim has built up an audience over the years, thanks to great animated late night programming and a cheeky marketing attitude. That attitude was extremely apparent this week.
Although we have known for some time that Rick and Morty Season was coming, it turns out that Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s masterpiece will return to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim much sooner than expected.
It’s possible that the best of the best when it comes to wacky TV is Childrens Hospital. The Adult Swim comedy has made its name by striking at everything that’s tired and typical about dramatic medical shows. But, it looks like the seventh season will be the last.
To celebrate/mourn the end of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which will say goodbye this weekend, the show brought in punk poet laureate Patti Smith for a requiem that is possibly the most moving song to ever contain the word “meatwad” in it.
Adult Swim’s brand of alternative comedy has not always appealed to everyone, but recently they seem to have found significant mainstream success. Although barely scratching the surface of its sophomore season, it seems we have confirmation that more Rick and Morty is on the way.
Well, fast food-obsessed America, it looks like the greatest show ever centered on an edible trio will be coming to a close in 2015, as Adult Swim mainstay Aqua Teen Hunger Force will be forever bowing out with Season 11.
Death hoaxes are nothing new on the Internet, and the impetus behind them is usually as empty as the hoaxes themselves. But this recent Mark McGrath hoax seems to have been a publicity stunt for an Adult Swim series.
You know how in comedy, the rule of three is generally considered king? Well sometimes things get taken a little farther. Enter the exquisitely random and exhausting “Too Many Cooks,” an incredibly dark Adult Swim one-off that has taken the Internet by storm…that has taken the Internet by storm…that has taken the…anyway, just watch it here.
Black Jesus creator Aaron McGruder is best known for offending the masses with his comic strip/cartoon The Boondocks, and while Black Jesus is a similarly raucous and oddly surreal take on black culture, it’s on a completely different comedic cloud. And yes, it’s a weed cloud.
If you're not already watching Adult Swim's Rick and Morty you are doing something wrong. Created by Community's Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland (who also voices the two titular characters), the show has been delivering some of the best sci-fi adventure on television since it premiered at the start of last December, and - perhaps more importantly - every single episode has been hysterically funny.
No one would ever claim Adult Swim’s quirky live-action darling, Eagleheart, was a series for everyone. Though nothing on the oft-cartoony network really is. But this is an outwardly irreverent affair that plays with a dead seriousness and more than a dash of self-deprecation. And in the series’ brand-spanking-new third season — dubbed Eagleheart: Paradise Rising — one thing holds Chris Elliott, Maria Thayer and Brett Gelman, together: a season-long story arc.
Continuing with the Adult Swim line-up, the NTSF:SD:SUV panel followed Children's Hospital (just like on TV!) and featured creator and star Paul Scheer, executive producer Jonathan Stern and consulting producer Curtis Gwinn as well as cast members Karen Gillan, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael and the great Martin Starr. What's in store for the police procedural spoof come Season 3?
The fifth season of Children's Hospital is gearing up and in attendance at the Con are the show’s executive producers Jonathan Stern and David Wain (who also moderated) as well as cast members Lake Bell, Erinn Hayes, Ken Marino and Rob Huebel. And of course, star and creator Rob Corddry (or, well, someone else in clown makeup). Nothing like a panel full of comedians.
Adult Swim has announced their plans for Comic Con, including the list of shows that will be featured in panels, and the list of talent set to appear to talk about their related series, including Rob Corddry, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer, Jackson Publick, Doc Hammer, Seth Green, Patton Oswalt, Amy Sedaris, Eric Andre, Hannibal Buress and others. Also on the menu for Adult Swim fans is the Adult Swim Funhouse, which will offer viewers a chance to wander through a themed funhouse for the chance to earn themselves a t-shirt.
It turns out that The Greatest Event In Television History, last year's Adult Swim remake of the opening titles of Simon & Simon, wasn't even close to actually being The Greatest Event In Television History so Adam Scott came back to try again. And this time he's taking on Hart to Hart and begrudgingly brought his Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poelher (and several other guest stars) along with him.
