Turn on the TV late at night this week and you might come across an extended advertisement for Smart Pipe, an exciting product that takes the internet of things to its subterranean, sewage-drenched logical conclusion. Don't worry, though: no one actually wants you to share your shit on Twitter.
Adult Swim's deranged sitcom parody "Too Many Cooks" took off on YouTube, but part of its charm came from imagining encountering it in its intended context: at 4 a.m., in a block of time innocuously marked "Informercials." It's a gag the network pulls regularly, and this week, it premiered the follow-up: "In Search of Miracle Man."
At first, Too Many Cooks seems like some forgotten laugh-track sitcom from the '70s or '80s. There's the cheesy theme song, the suburban house, the head shots of family members as they go about their day. But then something really weird happens. Or doesn't happen.
Homophobic, censorious advocacy group and righteous bunch of trolls One Million Moms is back with another important cause. The group, which is run by the anti-gay American Family Association, concerns itself primarily with waging "media campaigns" against evils like the Geico pig, whose commercials they claimed promoted bestiality, and protesting virtually every show on TV for being somehow blasphemous, lustful or something else fun. This week they're feeling salty about Black Jesus, Adult Swim's new show from the Boondocks creator about, you guessed it, a black Jesus who lives in Compton and doesn't mind a little weed now and again.
Following a lamented hiatus since 2010, Adult Swim will premiere the fourth and final season of its profane, animated satire The Boondocks next month, featuring the full return of voice acting cast members Regina King and John Witherspoon as well as series regulars Katt Williams, Charlie Murphy, and Sway Calloway.
Nearly 15 years since it put the kibosh on what would go on to become the most legendary episode of Dexter's Laboratory, Cartoon Network has finally released the foul-mouthed episode deemed too rude to air.
X Factor judge/former Disney Channel staple/occasionally troubled young woman Demi Lovato recently appeared on Adult Swim's Eric André Show, and confusion ensued. Engulfed by machine-made fog and holding a plate of spaghetti for some of the time, Lovato was asked to confirm several shows she was on and was told she would be tested for her "
Satan thetan levels." An '80s rock icon showed up, throwing her further off kilter. This is prankish and juvenile on André's part, and yet Lovato has rarely seemed this human in public, even if she says little more than, "Really?" "Um?" "Yeah." and "What?" for the duration of the "interview."
Last night's Childrens Hospital was broadcast live at midnight and while the "live" part wasn't necessarily true, it did appear to be impressively shot in one take. Watch to see which cast members cracked under pressure, stay for the Hamm.
After running old episodes from its web series, Children's Hospital debuted all new material tonight, and cancer never had a chance.
Celebrities are just like us! Tim and Eric go to great lengths to give us a look at what Paul Rudd probably does on his triple-monitor home computing center: He watches videos of himself dancing.
