AdultSwim.com, the online adjunct to Cartoon Network�s popular late night sister network of animation for adults, will launch Adult Swim�s Friday Night Fix on Friday, Sept. 16, offering select Adult Swim content via the Internet, on a night when the Adult Swim block does not air on Cartoon Network. Visitors to AdultSwim.com will be able to watch full-length episodes of selected Adult Swim original comedies like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken and Sealab 2021 online each week.
Adult Swim�s Friday Night Fix�s lineup of Adult Swim shows will be available from 11 p.m.-6 a.m. (ET) every Friday. Episodes will refresh weekly and will include seven or more episodes of Adult Swim original comedies available for viewing on AdultSwim.com.

�Building on the success of our message boards and the recently launched Adult Swim Fan Collective, Adult Swim�s Friday Night Fix is our latest effort to offer our fans compelling content and increased choices,� said Paul Condolora, vice president and general manager, Cartoon Network New Media. �With Adult Swim�s Friday Night Fix, we�re upping the ante by giving the most devoted members of our community the chance to check out some of their favorite shows through their broadband connection. As our online audience continues to grow, we will continue to offer more compelling content and features to enhance the Adult Swim brand.�
�Adult Swim�s Friday Night Fix is a complement to the valuable programming that airs on Cartoon Network,� said Coleman Breland, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Turner Network Sales. �By providing a few previews via broadband one night a week, we are extending the popular brands of Cartoon Network and Adult Swim to reach the targeted Adult Swim demographic on a night that Adult Swim is not available on the linear network.�
�Since we only offer Adult Swim programming six nights a week, our biggest fans have been clamoring for a Friday night slate on the message boards,� said Chip Duffey, Adult Swim New Media creative director. �We think that Adult Swim�s Friday Night Fix is a great complement to our programming lineup, and we will make sure to keep it interesting for our biggest fans. In addition to new episodes, we�ll show fan favorites and add some rarely seen archival episodes of shows like Space Ghost Coast to Coast to the mix each week.�

More than 70,000 members have joined in less than one month. In addition to show clips, games, behind-the-scenes blogs and information from Williams St. staffers and the ever-popular message boards, AdultSwim.com plans to add ring tones and additional downloadable music in the near future.
