Adult Swim is never afraid to go beyond the boundaries of what most people consider good taste, so the not-necessarily-PC premise of this show shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. "Black Jesus" spotlights Jesus living in modern-day Compton, Calif., trying to spread love and kindness throughout his neighborhood on a daily basis. Mostly assisting in his mission is a small-but-loyal group of downtrodden followers. The live-action series was created by Aaron McGruder, who previously brought the animated favorite "The Boondocks" to Adult Swim.

Adult Swim describes "The Heart, She Holler" as a "live-action soap opera about folk who ain't never used soap or seen an opera." Specifically, it's set in Heartshe Holler, a town with such a long history of inbreeding that its residents aren't, shall we say, normal. When Hurlan Heartshe -- the secret, long-hidden son of the Heartshe dynasty -- returns to run the town, a conflict ensues with his sisters, Hurshe and Hambrosia, who are trying to take over the town themselves.
Cantankerous Robert "Granddad" Freeman is the legal guardian of his grandsons, 10-year-old revolutionary Huey and 8-year-old Riley, a product of contemporary rap culture. After moving the family from Chicago's South Side to the safety of suburban Woodcrest -- aka the boondocks -- Granddad hopes to ignore the grandkids and enjoy his golden years in peace. But the kids have different plans, torturing each other and provoking others in the neighborhood. No matter how wild they get, Huey and Riley are no match for the eccentric elderly man.
From the minds of Adult Swim veterans Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, this anthology's tales might best be described as horrifying, insane or -- at least -- dark. The 15-minute episodes feature various guest stars. While its gallows humor is distinctly Tim and Eric, the presentation quality probably won't jibe with what their fans are used to; the guys' longest-running show, "Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job," had a low-quality, public-access feel to it, whereas "Bedtime Stories" has high production values.
This live-action comedy series shows that corporate life in Hell really isn't much different from what it is on Earth, with everyone trying to get promotions. Associate demon Gary is looking to climb up the corporate ladder of the underworld. To do so, he tries to capture souls on Earth. Along the way, Gary tries to help spread love for his boss by doing things like helping a high-school drama class make a musical that glorifies Satan and trying to convince a pro ballplayer to thank the Devil after every bunt single. The show was created by "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" writers Dave Willis and Casper Kelly.
Oscar-nominated actor John C. Reilly ("Chicago") portrays naive and socially awkward Dr. Steve Brule in this Adult Swim series that sees the doctor examining various parts of everyday life. As he discusses such ordinary topics as boats, animals and money, Brule reveals information about his personal life, some of which is shocking and disturbing. Brule is joined throughout the series by recurring characters, who offer the likes of movie reviews and news updates.
Comic Eric André hosts a late-night show that parodies low-budget public-access programs and brings the talk genre to another level -- not in a good way. It features interviews with celebrities -- some really are, and others are impersonators -- and what producers describe as "extreme real-life weirdos" interspersed with "deranged" man-on-the-street segments and just general chaos in the studio. Working with André is apathetic sidekick Hannibal Buress, who serves as the straight man to the hyperactive host.
Do you wonder what it would be like if Mike Tyson were to solve mysteries as Scooby-Doo does? That's the premise of an animated series geared toward adults -- without the talking dog. Tyson voices his character, who tackles problems with help from the Mike Tyson Mystery Team: the ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry, Mike's adopted daughter Yung Hee, and a pigeon who was once a man. The former boxing champ and his team answer any plea to close unsolved enigmas. Lending their voices to the show are comic Norm Macdonald and Oscar-winner Jim Rash.
This live-action sketch comedy series features members of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, or Odd Future for short, a collective of rappers, artists and skateboarders. In addition to comedy sketches, the program features man-on-the-street segments, pranks and music from Odd Future. As is the case of most Adult Swim shows, this one is definitely geared toward adults and not intended for young eyes and ears.
A trio of fast-food items works to solve mysteries in an edgy adult cartoon. The brains of the group is Frylock, a floating box of fries, but Master Shake does a lot of the talking, most of it aimed at making life miserable for Meatwad, a sweet-natured ball of meat. Recurring characters include neighbor Carl, supercilious Mooninites (lunar creatures) Ignigknot and Err, and mad scientists Dr. Weird and Steve.
Actor Seth Green ("Family Guy") and Matthew Senreich created the off-the-wall comedy hit, which is a series of pop-culture parodies using stop-motion animation of toys, action figures and dolls. The title character was an ordinary chicken until he was run down by a car and subsequently brought back to life in cyborg form by mad scientist Fritz Huhnmorder, who tortures Robot Chicken by forcing him to watch a random selection of TV shows, the sketches that make up the body of each episode. The show often features special episodes built around a single theme, including "Star Wars" and DC Comics.
