Adult Swim is an American programming block that offers adult-oriented content from 8 PM to 6 AM. The channel was founded in 2001 and is the nighttime identity of Cartoon Network, as it only targets children between 7 and 15 years old. It was conceived by Mike Lazzo, and it was developed after Cartoon Network‘s previous efforts with airing content for teens and young adults after 11 PM.
Adult Swim reaches more than 94 million American households. They are also a pioneer in the industry, as they launched the first animated VR experience in 2015.
Adult Swim targets the adult demographic and offers a wide range of animations and live-action shows. Some examples include syndicated series, original programming, short films, and video animations.
The block is famous for its adult animation features, sketch comedy, mockumentaries, and pilots. The recurrent themes in most of their shows are sexual, with frank sexual discussions, graphic violence, nudity, and strong language.
Some of the original shows that can be viewed on Adult Swim include Rick and Morty, The Venture Bros, Black Jesus, and Robot Chicken, among many others. They also air programs that were acquired from FOX, such as Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy.
In the United States, Adult Swim is the only channel that offers anime, besides Disney XD, and the only one that provides anime for teens and young adults instead of children.
