Black Jesus, a contemporary tale of the son of god living in Compton, Calif., opened to especially strong ratings in August. It even surpassed most broadcast competition that night among adults 18-49 and has since ranked No. 1 in its time slot. (It also comes from co-creator Mike Clattenburg and is produced by McGruder’s 5 Mutts Productions.)
The animated Mike Tyson Mysteries (Warner Bros. Animation) and Mr. Pickles(HotHouse) are more recent additions to the Adult Swim lineup. Both have enjoyed strong freshman runs, and the latter has regularly won its time slot.
They join Childrens Hospital, The Heart, She Holler and Rick and Morty (among others) as series that will air again in 2015.
