Since the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_Boston_bomb_scare 2007 Boston Bomb Scare]] and [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom the resulting managerial changes that soon followed]], the block [[NetworkDecay began to incorporate live action comedies]], following the example of the parent network with CN Real, and much to the chagrin of the anime and classic animated comedies. They’ve backed down on this somewhat since the "CN Real era" ended, but you can still see such shows on occasion (mainly on Friday nights).[[note]](See UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom in the trope list below for details...or Adult Swim's entry on NetworkDecay/{{Slipped}} for that matter.)[[/note]] In addition, since Toonami's revival in May of 2012, Adult Swim was subsequently more towards being the channel's brand for adult (animated) comedy as Toonami took over the channel's duties of airing anime and mature action-animation once again.

Because of its adult orientations, in comparison to the rest of Cartoon Network which is kid oriented ({{Periphery Demographic}}s aside), Adult Swim is considered to be a "separate network" from Cartoon Network proper for UsefulNotes/{{ratings}} purposes[[note]](Similar programming blocks that are given this arrangement include Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}’s Creator/NickAtNite. The newly revived Toonami also fits this case to enable them to broadcast mature oriented anime and action cartoons, however in a unique situation. Since they don’t have enough programming hours to get the "sub-network" status as of now, not to mention that a channel like Cartoon Network undergoing the network equivalent of [[BalkanizeMe Balkanization]] would probably just frustrate advertisers, is bundled with Adult Swim in the Nielsens to do so, giving them the unique situation of being a "programming block within a programming block".)[[/note]], and often shows ContentWarnings throughout the block that the programs presented are not suitable for young children. The name "Adult Swim" comes from the public pool period in which child occupants must leave the pool, as the lifeguards go on break and only the adults can swim, analogous to the network switching to adult-oriented programming. This reference was explicitly invoked in its early years when its AdBumpers and intro segment showed video clips from an adult swim pool.
