Why is Adult Swim shit?

>full frontal with Samatha Bee
>>
TBS shilling I guess? I hate it too.
>>
It's in TBS which CN is alongside under the Turner umbrella
>>
They did this before with that Neighbors From Hell cartoon.

Corporate mandate, most likely.

Right? I saw that shit and made the exact same face.

I never liked Sam Bee. She always reminded me of a progeria kid.

am I missing any 'adult swim' essentials?
>>
>>79700424
at least thats a cartoon and not a 30 min Daily show correspondent bit
>>
>>79700312
I pretty much just watch Adult Swim for the bumps and Toonami, now. What little programming it has that I like is in the minority now.
>>
I honestly thought my cable box was broken for a second. At least South Park is on.
>>
>>79700516

Like I said, probably a mandate from the higher ups.

AS probably hates having to do it too.
>>
>>79700454
No American Dad? The first season is rough, basically Family Guy with extra republican jokes, but after that it really hits a good stride. The TBS episodes are way more hit and miss.
>>
>>79700454
Check it Out! With Dr. Steve Brule

and Mighty Boosh wasn't too bad either
>>
>>79700559
Are you literally me?

Eagleheart: Paradise Rising
Yes, it's live action but fucking hell is it great
Also, Superjail and Titan Maximum were p good.

Oh shit that's the old one

>>79700583
>>79700593
what was The Mighty Boosh about? I didn't like Saul of the Moleman from what I saw, weren't those related?
>>
>>79700675
I generally avoid [as]'s live action line up. It all seems so very stupid to me.

Loiter Squad was the exception, and that shit did not last.
>>
>>79700675

Mighty Boosh is from some group of British guys.

Saul of the Molemen was American-made. I remember enjoying Saul. "Old fashioned bisexual Nathaniel Baltmore". (PTOOEY!)
>>
>>79700675
>what was The Mighty Boosh about?
iirc Monty Python-esque british troupe that did episode-long skits.
>>
This came out of fucking nowhere. What the hell is wrong with them? I thought I was still on TBS.
>>
>>79700717

I also like The Eric Andre show.
>>
Aside from anime and Toonami, the only stuff I've liked on AS are ATHF, Sealab 2021, Venture Bros., Harvey Birdman, Space Ghost/Brak, Squibillies, and the few random British comedies they showed.
>>
They've should have learned that political late night shows are dead. Wilmore failed, Noah failed, and Colbert is shitting the bed because he shoves political shit down everybody's throat.

What was the best year for them?
>>
>>79700843

2006, just for Darkplace.

Man I thought they were desperate with the constant commercials but preempting another network for a simulcast out of nowhere is just sad.

2000-2003

So this marks the end for Adult Swim, right?
>>
...I think I get it. This way tomorrow or next week or whatever they'll act like the show was a huge success in the ratings while not mentioning they had to air it on multiple networks at once to get those ratings.
>>
>>79700843
I'd say between 2000 and 2009 is pretty much it.
>>
>>79700843
apparently 2001-2005 then 2010-2013

Hard to say. I guess since Baby Blues, Mission Hill and Oblongs were from other networks first, it shouldn't be the best of adult swim. I'll say ATHF/Harvey/Brak. Home Movies is my favorite of all time though
>>
>>79700949
That would actually be pretty devious if most people didn't just change the channel like it seems most here have.

Most of them with a decent amount of shows(5+) have good mixed with bad, so it kinda evens out. 2007 is a good example of this because even though it gave us Drinky Crow, Xavier, Saul, and Superjail, it also shat out Tim and Eric.

2012 was probably the worst, which is ALSO a good example. We got Black Dynamite, which was fucking amazing, but the only other show that isn't COMPLETE horseshit from that year is the Cleveland Show, which they just got from Fox anyway.
>>
>>79700454
I miss Harvey Birdman
>>
So the higher ups must think this is gonna flop hard if you're gonna force a simulcast on 5 networks, especially when the other 4 are completely different from what is basically copy and paste Daily Show.
>>
>>79701162
>force a simulcast on 5 networks
...christ wow I thought two were bad enough but what are the other three?

I don't think girls should be allowed on tv beyond showcasing new furniture or vehicles. With how money grubbing and penny pinching networks are, you think they'd stop taking risks on female comedians.
>>
>>79701197
That's 3 out of 5 channels I watch. The execs are shilling hard.
>>
The commercials alone were fucking horrible
>OMG female soldiers have it so bad with the army healthcare system!

>that fucking commercial with the """"refugee""""

Too bad Adult swim just reformatted their message boards into reddit and destroyed the only forum where you could discuss bumps.

Yeah, NO.

So, how long do you think it's gonna last? Did anyone here actually watch it?
>>
Anybody have some old Adult Swim schedule line ups? Like their first broadcasts
>>
>>79700559
I was watching my dvr for a few hrs so thought I clicked a different channel. Before I noticed the logo in the corner I pressed the info button especially aftet I heard some ad for tbs which rarely advertises on the channel.

I hope the ratings plummeted hard for that bullshit so we will never have to experience that cancer again.

I love all those things. I found them and downloaded them and threw them in a playlist with these older shows on random. it's nice to play in the background while doing other shit

Oh god it would be hilarious if female vets started getting preferential treatment while male vets continued to get the shaft.

Hilarious in a soul crushing way, that is.

It wouldn't surprise me if that's already happening since it's true for our public healthcare system.

Harvey Birdman

These are the only AS shows worth watching.

You will get exactly as much out of it as you put in.
>>
>>79707735
You left out You're Whole. Other than that this is a solid list.
>>
>>79700454
Mighty Boosh
Dark Place
Delocated
>>
>>79700843
lineup was pretty damn good all the way until after 2005 then the good shows are scattered in a lot of crap
>>
>>79707813

I was iffy about putting it on, since it was technically a separate series. The same goes for Swords, Knives, Very Sharp Objects, and Cutlery. You're right, though. They do deserve mention.

I give You're Whole a mix of God through Okay, depending on the episode, and SKVSOC goes firmly in Okay
>>
>>79705233
>Venture Bros (Seasons 1-4)
Agree with this for the most part but season five had a couple standouts and if the first two episodes of the new season are any hint this one should be on par with season 4. Five was better than the first season anyways.
