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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
