After being on the air for more than three decades, the essential format of this show hasn't changed: Get an A-list guest host (or reasonable facsimile) and throw him or her into sketches with the ensemble players, which have included such heavy hitters as Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Jane Curtin, John Belushi, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray and Mike Myers. Each week's show also offers two musical numbers from someone at, or aspiring to reach, the top of the charts.
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.
Improv veterans Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie return for a new take on the comedy series with host, Aisha Tyler. Each episode, a special guest star joins the comics as they tackle a series of spontaneous improvised sketches, with only a few random ideas from the studio audience and their host. With little information and a lot of imagination, the comics depict a variety of characters and scenes, and even perform songs. At the end of each round, Aisha awards points to each of the four performers and announces a winner at the end of every episode.
Two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene to better their lives and the lives of their families. Earn Marks is a young manager trying to get his cousin's career off the ground. Alfred Miles is a rapper who goes by the stage name "Paper Boi," a hot new artist trying to understand the line between real life and street life. Darius, Alfred's right-hand man and visionary, rounds out the entourage along with Van. Van is not only Earn's best friend but the mother of his daughter. Donald Glover and Brian Tyree Henry co-star as Earn and Alfred, respectively.
This animated series, based on the 2009 film of the same name, features the exploits of the titular character, a 1970s renaissance man with a kung-fu grip, who doesn't always think before making decisions. His sidekick, Bullhorn, is the brains behind Black Dynamite's hard-hitting style. Cream Corn provides comic relief on the mean streets of Los Angeles, while attractive Honey Bee classes up the area. The half-hour series features the voices of a number of the actors who starred in the live-action film, including Michael Jai White in the title role.
This off-the-wall assortment of bogus TV commercials, fake phone calls and inappropriate comic sketches features Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the creators of "Tom Goes to the Mayor." The show features appearances by a variety of celebrities -- a list that includes David Cross, John Mayer, John C. Reilly and "Weird Al" Yankovic.
Rebooting the hit movie franchise of the same name, "Lethal Weapon" follows Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh as they combat crime in Los Angeles. Following the death of his wife and their unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL Riggs moves to California in search of a new start at the LAPD, where he is paired up with Murtaugh, who recently suffered a near-fatal heart attack. The newcomer's tendency to not look before he leaps clashes with Murtaugh's more considered technique, but when they look past the surface friction, they see the partnership might give them what they need.
