The Show Girl's Got Scoop on 'Childrens' Hospital,' 'Happy Town' & 'Top Chef Masters' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 23rd 2010 9:00AM
Rob Corddry in Childrens' HospitalThis week, I check in to see what's happening on 'Childrens' Hospital,' the hilarious Web series-turned-Adult Swim show, and let series creator and star Rob Corddry explain why he's in clown makeup and covered in blood, for those who aren't familiar. (One note: 'Childrens' Hospital' is not actually for children.)

I also have the dish on 'Happy Town,' ABC's new murder-mystery drama, and talk about the pressures of cooking for TV's funniest family -- um, hello? 'Modern Family'! -- with 'Top Chef Masters' contestant Rick Tramonto.

Rob Corddry Reveals First Acting Job (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 1st 2010 4:50PM
Bonnie Hunt ShowNo part is too small. Rob Corddry learned that early on in his career.

Corddry stopped by 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and Bonnie surprised him with video from his first TV acting gig. "I'm so excited to be on TV -- 'I made it, mom!' -- and I'm fully covered in this like amusement park costume." Corddry played the "happy muskrat." As if that wasn't embarrassing enough, the TV show didn't use his voice. Only the actor's leg made the cut.

Poor Rob, we're sure it didn't help to have Bonnie laughing so hard after watching the clip.

Check out the video after the jump.

Martha Stewart Has a Bad Day in the Kitchen (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 24th 2010 2:30PM
Martha Stewart experienced several mishaps while in the kitchen today with Rob Corddry on 'The Martha Stewart Show' (weekdays, syndicated). During the cooking segment, Stewart splattered grease on herself while frying chicken cutlets and incorrectly set the temperature on her oven. And how did Stewart put a capper on these kitchen misfortunes? She knocked back a beer, of course.

"This is an off day for Martha," Stewart said. "It must be because my banker was here. Oh God, I get nervous around the bankers."

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

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 23rd 2009 9:32AM
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).

Top TV Stories of 2008: Web TV goes big time - VIDEOS

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 19th 2008 7:02PM
NPH as Dr. HorribleAs I look back at the posts TV Squad did this year, a certain topic popped up quite a bit: "Hey, folks, take a look at [Name of big star] in this [funny/quirky/dramatic] web series you can only find at [Name of web site]!" While the quality of and star power behind web-exclusive programming has been building for a couple of years now, 2008 saw an explosion of web series that attracted enough buzz to make one wonder if Jeff Zucker wasn't thinking of this a little bit when he offered Jay Leno the 10:00 slot on NBC.

What caused this explosion? Well, we can thank one of 2008's other big stories -- the writers' strike -- for a lot of it.

Rob Corddry gets the show he should have gotten - VIDEO

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 10th 2008 9:27AM
When Rob Corddry left The Daily Show, Fox scooped him up for a midseason replacement filler called The Winner. It was a horrible little sitcom from the creators of (shudder) Family Guy that should have been flagged long before the executives brought the script to read on the toilet in their private bathrooms.

The most painful part of the show was the feeling that Corddry deserved something much better than another pop culture referencing yawnfest. His Daily Show appearances always made for great television and he also made great transitions into movies whether they were minor roles in Old School or starring roles in the indie comedy Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story.

Now the fates have realigned and given Corddry the show he should have gotten when he left The Daily Show dangling from one last philosophical poop joke. The WB.com premiered a web series called Childrens' Hospital starring, written and directed by Corddry, the man who left a little part of himself in a Daily Show men's room oh so many months ago.

Rob Corddry Interview for 'Childrens' Hospital'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 8th 2008 4:00PM

"The way the economy is, and with the impending SAG strike -- f*** it, you're gonna see me on like that terrible celebrity dancing show."

In a world where TV shows are cancelled faster than you can add them to your DVR, 'Daily Show' alum Rob Corddry's arrival on TheWB.com with new Web series 'Childrens' Hospital' (10 mini-episodes premiere Monday, Dec. 8 on TheWB.com) is just what the doctor ordered.

A medical-drama spoof where the doctors care more about sex than patients (ahem, 'Grey's Anatomy'!), the off-beat comedy stars Lake Bell, Rob Huebel, Megan Mullally, Nick Kroll, Erinn Hayes, Nate Corddry, Ed Helms, Jason Sudeikis, Ken Marino ... and more, if you can believe it.

Corddry let AOL TV peek behind the curtain, giving scoop on everything from why Web series are better than TV, how he got Hollywood's funniest actors to do his show, his 'Arrested Development' movie idea ... and his fear of clowns.

The Daily Show: June 12, 2008 - VIDEOS

Rob Corddry"George Walker Bush: Still President": We've still got seven months before the era of President Bush is officially over. With Barack Obama and John McCain dominating the news, Bush has taken a little vacay to Europe, because he's pretty much the only American who can afford to do so at this point. What's up with Bush getting super touchy-feely with German Chancellor Angela Merkel? Has he learned nothing? When he wasn't giving massages or trying the classic "yawn and stretch" on the Chancellor, he attempted to convince the German press that he's not actually a fan of war and it was his own rhetoric's fault for making it seem otherwise.

Jake GyllenhaalOhh, you didn't think we were done with that Larry Craig goodness, did you? Of course not. In a recent interview, Matt Lauer asked Senator Craig whether or not he could be bi. And then Craig took out his sexy, totally didn't meet in a bathroom, kind looks like the type to force feed you casserole wife, waggled his eyebrows and was all like, "Is this a good enough answer?" and then Matt Lauer was like, "Hoyeah!" and -- and -- I'm sleepy. Enter the R. Kelly impersonator to wake me up with his music. I liked the first guy's voice better, but this fellow was funnier. Ohh, "Trapped In The Closet" guy, bless your heart.

"A-Listless": Samantha Bee filed a report about the horrifying epidemic of celebrity exhaustion. This was a pretty good report, mainly because we got to see Rob Corddry again. The second Rob Corddry Daily Show appearance in less than a month! Doesn't that guy have a movie to promote? Just bring him back on the show, for the love of Corddry and all things bald and funny. I loved the over-credits bit of Samantha trying to eat her dog's head. Awesome.

A Family Guy flick and the return of The Winner?

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 23rd 2007 3:01PM

the winnerThe answer is maybe. The Hollywood Reporter writes that creator Seth MacFarlane is looking at the possibility of doing a Family Guy movie sometime in the future, which makes sense because it's much harder to make movies in the past.

One plan McFarlane mentioned was to have former Family Guy scribe Ricky Blitt come back to work on the film script. It's worth noting that none of this is official, and that a basic plot for a Family Guy film hasn't even been thought up, though McFarlane does state he doesn't want to do a huge movie like the upcoming Simpsons Movie, but rather a smaller story focusing on the Griffin family.

Watch four episodes of The Winner online

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 19th 2007 3:42PM

The WinnerWow, I didn't even realize that FOX was going to do this, but they have posted four episodes of Rob Corddry's new comedy The Winner, which premieres (on television) on March 4 at 8:30.

Now, this is the part of the post where I tell you that I've watched a couple of the episodes and the show is either a.) funny!, b.) a disappointment, or c.) too early to tell, it could get better! Unfortunately, my speakers aren't working right now. Actually, they are, because I can play CDs and iTunes and other stuff just fine, but I can't play the sound on web videos at all (and yes I've checked the settings).

The show looks good. The way the credits come on and there's a title. And the way Rob Cordrry looks when he walks around a room, sits on a couch and moves his mouth. Wow! I can't wait to hear what all the characters are saying.

After Corddry leaves The Daily Show, who's left?

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 23rd 2006 2:33PM
Rob CorddryI'm worried about The Daily Show.

As most fans of the show know by now, this is Rob Corddry's last week; he's leaving so he can concentrate on his new Fox sitcom The Winner, among other projects. He's the last of the three "Big Cs" -- Corddry, Carell, Colbert -- that helped bring the show into its own in the early part of the decade, perfecting their particular reporter roles to the point where the humor came as much out of their characters as from making fun of the news or profile subject. Colbert was the poorly-informed smug guy; Carell was pathetic, and Corddry was the Masshole. High comedy all around. And now, he's taking off, just like the other two Cs before him.

The Daily Show"Karr Talk": FOX News was bragging a bit about having one of their people on the plane, scoping out John Karr. Ohh, just imagine all the crazy crap that could've gone down! As it turned out, Karr spent most of his ride sipping champagne and eating king prawns. Wow. Senior Media Ethicist Rob Corddry reported live from the plane, his head slowly emerging from a toilet bowl. He wanted to do some real investigative journalism and find out more about ol' Pervert McMurderman (HA!) by hiding in the First Class toilet. He seemed crushed when Jon informed him that Karr wasn't in First Class but in Business Class. Oh, and I loved how the entire audience let out a collective groan when Rob said, "Scoop of a lifetime, Jon, and I let it slip through my fingers." After they cut away, Jon started laughing and explained that, since it's Rob's last week, they've all been think of terrible things for him to do. Man, I'm really going to miss Rob.

The Daily ShowJon Stewart quickly mentioned the night's guest, Matt Dillon, saying that he was only coming on the show because he was "doing it for Johnny!" The audience didn't really respond, so Jon joked about how old he was to remember The Outsiders. Aww. I remember The Outsiders. It had a pre-crazy Tom Cruise! And I totally played the most awesome greaser girl in my 8th grade stage version of the book (too tough to be a Soc chick, baby).

Jon Stewart"Capitol Records": Uggh. The Bush/American Idol photo-op. There's a throw-down in Lebanon, but Bush wanted to chill with Taylor Hicks. Well, the man gets what he wants. Elliott Yamin arrived a bit late for the event, but he had a good excuse (he was in a meeting with the president of Syria).

"Prime Ribbing": The only other guy that Bush has been spending quality time with is Prime Minister Tony Blair. That's been doing less than amazing things for Blair's standing in the UK. He's been getting teased in the House of Commons ever since Bush greeted him in public with "Yo, Blair!" Newbie European Correspondent John Oliver elaborated on the situation. Apparently, Bush didn't use "yo!" but "yeaux!", an old greeting dating back to the days of English knights. For example, one might have said, "Yeaux, Arthur! Nice joust!" John Oliver's timing was much better and smoother than that of the other recent English in-take, Dave Gorman (whom we haven't seen for a suspiciously long time). I guess the Daily Show folks are in a scramble to find some new folks now that Ed Helms is possibly on his way out.
