ABOUT

Adult Swim, launched in 2001, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.'s network offering original and acquired animated and live-action series for young adults. Airing nightly from 20h00 - 06h00 (ET/PT), Adult Swim is basic cable's #1 network with persons 18-34 and 18-49.

Debuting as a programming block on Cartoon Network in 2001, much of the network's general content is known for its risqué, unorthodox and often bizarre presentation, while many of the series features are developed in stark contrast with traditional American television programs.

The block features stylistically varied animated and live-action shows including original programming, syndicated series, short films, OVAs and Japanese anime, generally with minimal or no editing for content.

In the United States, Adult Swim has, over the course of its history, frequently cycled through and aired either recent or older features of adult animation, Japanese anime, mockumentaries and sketch comedy, among many other programs consisting of pilots and their subsequent, short-lived series and numerous spinoffs and shows that have sexual themes, frank sexual discussion, nudity, strong language and graphic violence.

While the network features trendy comedies and dramas of all types, many of its programs could be considered aesthetically experimental, transgressive, improvised and surreal in nature.
