The only good show that has come out of adult swim in a long time has been metalpoclypse, with robot chicken being a hit or miss show.

Metalocalypse is excellent, definitely the network's best comedy series and truly a worthy successor to Brendon Small's past series Home Movies (even if the two are nothing alike). The Venture Bros. is also very good, but the wait for new episodes is driving me nuts. And speaking of nuts... the Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! is riotously funny, but their offbeat sense of humor is definitely an acquired taste. And if you're an anime fan, it doesn't get much funnier than the totally insane parody series Perfect Hair Forever (unfortunately, it's not on the air anymore, but they are making online episodes).
I don't like Robot Chicken. It's stupid and there's pretty much no thought going into it. It's just reference after reference in tiny, story-less segments. It's TV for people with ADD. If that's your thing, well, whatever floats your boat. I personally can't stand it.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force used to be good, as was Harvey Birdman, unfortunately, both have gone to crap in recent seasons.
Sealab, Space Ghost and the aforementioned Home Movies were great, but they are all canceled or ended. Nothing else is worth mentioning.
