Adult Swim picks up sitcoms from Conan O'Brien, Rob Corddry

Rob Corrdry on Childrens' HospitalTwo very unique comedies will get a time slot on an equally unique cable network.

Conan O'Brien's "Conaco" production company and actor Rob Corrdry both scored spots on Adult Swim for two new live-action sitcoms.

O'Brien's company won a spot for
Eagleheart, a show about a fading TV star who wins a chance for glory once more on a production in Texas, but constantly clashes with the low-level TV exec in charge of the show.

Corrdry's medical drama spoof web series Childrens' Hospital will also go to Adult Swim. The channel will show re-edited versions of the episodes that aired on TheWB.com as well as produce new ones. Corrdry originally pitched the show to Comedy Central, but negotiations broke down with the network, probably because the show didn't have enough bimbo strippers and shirtless fat guys to fill their quota (cough, Secret Girlfriend, cough).

Conan O'Brien is horrible as a host on the Tonight Show (and on TV in general). He was a damned good comedy writer, but he just isn't funny face-to-face. I refuse to watch the Tonight Show anymore because of him. Now, his ego is bigger than any sumo wrestler and he thinks that his crap doesn't smell. So, Conan, congratulation!!! You just made sure that there's one comedy fan/comedian who will NEVER watch those two programs!!! Great job, you Carrottop wannabe.
