Paramedics Who Care Too Much on 'Pretend Time'Network television is filled with shows starring sexy, sexy doctors who care too much. Shows like 'Grey's Anatomy,' for instance. But 'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) isn't on network TV. It's on basic cable instead. And comedian Nick Swardson likes to take things ... a bit further.

The new episode features a comedy sketch called "Paramedicks." It's all about medical professionals who really, really care, and who show it by hitting on their patients.

Ryan Phillippe Meets a Gay Robot on 'Pretend Time With Nick Swardson'Can a robot find true love with a Hollywood heartthrob? That's the question on the series premiere of 'Pretend Time With Nick Swardson' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central). "But wait," you're saying. "What's the deal with this show? And who is this 'Nick Swardson' person?"

Well, good question, you! Nicholas Robert "Nick" Swardson is a longtime stand-up comic and actor; he's most famous for his role on 'Reno 911!' And 'Pretend Time' is his new sketch comedy series. Even if you don't remember Nick, you'll probably recognize his guest star: Mr. Ryan Phillippe. The "hunky" actor is a fan of Swardson's unique brand of humor, so he agreed to show up for the premiere. But Ryan's reward for his generosity is to be hit on by a big gay robot.

Nick Swardson's Pretend TimeTrust me, after you watch the premiere of 'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time' (Tues., Oct. 12, 10PM ET on Comedy Central), the 'Wheelchair Cat' theme song and the phrase "powdered donuts make me go nuts" are going to be stuck in your head.

Swardson, of stand-up comedy and movie fame ('Blades of Glory,' 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,' 'You Don't Mess with the Zohan' and 'Benchwarmers'), also finally brings Gay Robot to the tube as a recurring character on the seven-episode first season of 'Pretend Time.' We'll also meet Wheelchair Cat (the feline who's living on a trust fund) and Garry Gaga, Lady Gaga's policeman brother who shares a sense of style with the pop star.

Swardson, who's best known to TV fans as 'Reno 911!''s roller-skatin', short-shorts-wearin' gay prostitute Terry Bernardino, talked to AOL TV about 'Pretend Time,' his thriving movie career (and upcoming co-star Heidi Montag), why we're not likely to find him on Twitter anytime soon and the origins of Terry, one of the greatest TV characters of all time.
