    Bust out your best polyester pants suit, because Black Dynamite is about to explode on the scene in 1970s Los Angeles. Based on 2009’s critically-acclaimed feature film, the Black Dynamite animated series further chronicles the exploits of the central character, Black Dynamite, and his crew. Under the direction of Carl Jones (The Boondocks), the series features the voice talent of Michael Jai White (For Better or Worse, The Dark Knight, Why Did I Get Married?), Tommy Davidson (In Living Color, Bamboozled), Kym Whitley (The Cleveland Show, Brian McKnight Show), and Byron Minns (Mongo Wrestling Alliance), all of whom starred in the feature film.

    • Sunday, July 15: “Jackson Five Across Yo' Eyes” – When Cream Corn saves young Michael Jackson from an assassination attempt, the pint-sized pop star finds in Corn a new best friend. But as Black Dynamite soon discovers, Jacko is far from the cute bundle of talent the world adores: he’s a merciless alien force who leaves his brothers and father Joe in constant fear of a ***** slapping! And when Cream Corn too has finally had enough, Dynamite and crew step in to slap the black off Mike’s face, changing music and Michael forever.
    • Sunday, July 22: “Bullhorn Nights” – It started as a mission to infiltrate the world of adult film in order to solve a case. But now Bullhorn may be in over his head… in *****es. Convinced he's found his true purpose (making *****es happy with his “Sweet Throat”), Bullhorn abandons crime fighting to become a celebrity porn star. It’s up to Black Dynamite to extract his sidekick from the pornucopia of pleasure and convince him there’s more important things in life than *****ing on film.
    • Sunday, July 29: “Taxes and Death” – With the IRS on his case for a reported $60K and tax day fast approaching, Black Dynamite and crew experience one of their most challenging missions to date when they are hired to escort drug-addled and emotionally unstable cultural icon Richard Pryor (Eddie Griffin) to the comedy performance of his career.

    Brutality wields its uncomfortable deth-hammer in the fourth season of Metalocalypse. Excruciating horrors loom, waiting for the right moment to crush us all into a smooth repugnant paste, with very few lumps. Experience the lurking blackness of dating, the vomitous torture of job insecurity, the repulsive abhorrence of reality, the emasculating woe of dating a co-worker, and the pinching, sweaty waking Deth of flying coach. Will our beloved Dethklok survive these deathly trails or will they perish like a flaming serpent cast down by Odin? The Metalocalypse indeed looms nearer. New episodes of Metalocalypse continue on Adult Swim, Sunday nights at 12:15 a.m. (ET, PT) and replays at 3:15 a.m. (ET, PT). Rated TV-MA.

    • Sunday, July 1: “Dethdinner” – As Dethklok hosts the most important dinner of their career, the divvying of album credits, over tagging on social networking sites, and fights over a girl come to head.

    Sundays at 12:30 a.m. (ET, PT)

    The Eric Andre Show may be the most manic and unorthodox late night talk show ever made. The show’s traditional talk show format quickly devolves into chaos as its inept and bipolar host Eric Andre, along with his apathetic co-host Hannibal Buress (30 Rock, SNL), subvert all late-night conventions. Taking place on a dingy public-access TV channel within an alternate reality, The Eric Andre Show, creates its own distorted pop culture universe by conducting interviews with an unpredictable mix of actual celebrities, “fake” celebrities and extreme real-life weirdos. These interviews are broken up with deranged man-on-the-street segments, surreal flashes of inexplicable studio chaos, talk show desk-pieces and the general deconstruction of late night's most beloved tropes in every quarter-hour episode. Rated TV-MA.

    • Sunday, July 1: “Jack” – Eric interviews Jack Nicholson. Musical guest Devendra Banhart.
    • Sunday, July 8: “J-Moe” – Eric interviews J-Moe and Robert Forster.
