Adult Swim wants to cut a new swath through its audience.
The Time Warner-owned cable programmer that tilts toward millennial viewers and younger generations with animated fare shown in primetime and overnights, said it would release more original programming via streaming video for daytime viewing as part of an effort to spur its audience to increase consumption of its oddball but cult-favorite content.
As part of its slate of programs, expected to be cited next week during a presentation by Time Warner’s Turner unit, Adult Swim will unveil its revival of “Samurai Jack,” the former Cartoon Network series that has not produced an original episode since 2004. Original creator and executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky will continue the epic story of a young prince from feudal Japan vies »

Sure, "Game Of Thrones" might be HBO's biggest show, but when it comes to their comedies, you might be surprised to learn the hit series title doesn't belong to "Veep" or "Silicon Valley." It's actually "Ballers" that's bringing in viewers in a massive way, and you can probably thank the star wattage of Dwayne Johnson for that. And he's bringing his charisma and well tailored suits back for a second season and a new trailer is here. Essentially "Entourage" by way of sports, the Miami-set show follows The Rock, agent to top tier athletes, as he navigates the egos and money that are involved when dealing with that world. Key supporting roles are filled by Rob Corddry, with Andy Garcia playing the baddie this season. "Ballers" is back on July 17th.

A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg lent their voices and rap skills to a pair of bodega cats in Friday's episode of Animals, HBO's R-rated animated comedy series that takes a perverse look at the animal kingdom. For the episode, the A$AP Mob members rhyme about bodega shoppers (including Kanye West), tuna fish, sleeping in the bread aisle and bagel-eating rats.
"You say beef / I say chickens/ I don't really know the difference / If you asked me what my favorite dish is / Either pussy or the fishes," A$AP Rocky's bodega cat says. »
Rob Corddry, the series co-creator and star known for his clown-painted face, said the decision came after months of deliberation.
“I had a feeling larva that transformed into a thought caterpillar, and, to continue the metaphor, then became a decision butterfly,” Corddry told Vulture, which first reported the news. “Talking with random people who understood the business and weren’t directly associated with ‘Childrens’ really helped me get my thoughts together.”
Corddry asserts that the seventh season of the offbeat comedy is the show’s best yet, and that influenced his decision to call it a wrap. The show’s final season bowed Jan. 22. “If I had been disappointed by this season, I would not have been able to stop doing it,” Corddry said. “This show, season after season, has been an exercise in perfecting this world. »

The 15-min series’ creator, executive producer and star Corddry explained to Deadline his decision. “My reasons for ending the show have most to do with a general lack of time and creative energy for anything else, Corddry said. “Childrens Hospital is a year-round gig for me and I might care too much about it (i.e. I'm a control… »
Sad clown alert: the popular Adult Swim comedy Childrens Hospital will be ending its seven season run next month. Creator and star Rob Corddry confirmed the news in an in-depth interview with Variety, saying he believes the currently-airing seventh season is “the ultimate season of Childrens Hospital.”
The actor admitted that if he and the team believed that they weren’t going out on top, they would have probably continued the show into another year. As it stands, he thinks they’ve made the right decision.
Here’s a brief clip from his thoughts on the move to end the show:
This show, season after season, has been an exercise in perfecting this world. We just finished editing this season a couple of weeks ago, and it really is the ultimate season of Childrens Hospital. That wasn’t the decision-maker but it certainly was a strong factor. It’s uncomfortable »
