Adult Swim (stylized as [adult swim]) is an American programming block of Cartoon Network that operates at night from p.m. It is programmed by Williams Street Productions, a subsidiary of Turner, which also developed two other programming blocks for Cartoon Network: Toonami (which later became a block on Adult Swim in 2012) and Miguzi.
The block gets its name from a phrase used by public swimming pools in the United States to label designated times when children are restricted from using the facilities in favor of adults.
While the network features comedies and dramas of all types, many of its programs are aesthetically experimental, transgressive, improvised, and surrealist in nature.
Adult Swim has contracted with various studios known for their productions in absurd and shock comedy. The network grew out of Cartoon Network's previous attempts at airing content appropriate for teenagers and young adults who might be watching the channel after 11 p.m. The network began experimenting with its late night programming by airing anthology shows like Toon Heads and Late Night Black and White, both of which presented uncensored classic cartoon shorts.
In 2005, the network was granted its own Nielsen ratings report from Cartoon Network due to targeting a separate demographic.
The network features stylistically varied animated and live-action shows including original programming, syndicated series mainly consisting of Fox animated programming, short films, original video animation, and anime, generally with minimal or no editing for content.
Shows may have sexual themes, frank sexual discussion, nudity, strong language, and graphic violence.Since its launch in 2001, more than 15 million Christian singles have turned to Christian Mingle when looking for lasting love, fulfilling friendships or a fabulous date.We know that shared beliefs are the best foundation for a lasting and fulfilling relationship.This is not just a business for us; it’s what gets us up each and every day.We count our success by the enormous number of connections, relationships, marriages, and children we’ve helped to create.One of the favorite things to do with a date from adult chat is go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
