Docs Get Frisky on 'Childrens Hospital'The supply closet on 'Childrens Hospital' (Sun., 10:30PM ET on Cartoon Network) sees more action than the surgery wing's operating rooms.

"Time of death: 5:59," says Glenn. Lola replies, "Time of dry-humping in the supply closet: 6:01."

The two doctors sneak into the closet, but Lola exits with Owen. And doctor after doctor (after gorilla with baby?) leave the pitch-dark room. Check out who leaves with Glenn.

Brain Tumor as Breakup Excuse Backfires on 'Childrens Hospital'If you're dating a doctor and surrounded by doctors, lying about a major illness is not the best idea, as Dr. Lola Spratt discovers on 'Childrens Hospital' (Sun., 10:30PM ET on CN).

"I don't have a brain tumor," confesses Lola to Owen. "I just -- I couldn't think of a reason to break up with you." Owen replies, "That's just your brain tumor talking."

The Chief announces matter-of-factly: "Dr. Lola Spratt has a brain tumor." An exasperated Lola turns to Owen: "What?! You told everyone I have a brain tumor?" He says soberly, "You need your friends right now."

But even someone who actually is a friend interprets the news in an unexpected way.

Sick Kids Are Funny, but Sick Doctors Are a Laugh Riot!

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted Jul 17th 2010 6:00PM
With the weekly schlock comedy that network television continually throws at us like so much monkey pooh, it's refreshing, if not liberating to see television that puts ideas, creativity and jokes about genital amputation ahead of the bottom line.

'Childrens Hospital' Set Visit Interviews With Rob Corddry, Ken Marino & Henry Winkler (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 16th 2010 1:30PM
It's not too late to get addicted to 'Childrens Hospital,' which officially made the leap from Web series to TV series this week on Adult Swim (Sundays, 10:30PM ET). Airing in 15-minute chunks, they're re-showing the first mini-season of five-minute episodes before premiering the new season.

I've already professed my love for the show and its insane cast here and here, but if you're still not convinced you should check it out, maybe the comic stylings of creator and star Rob Corddry and his co-stars Ken Marino and Henry Winkler will do the trick.

I hit the set (fun fact: it's actually in the creepy old hospital where 'Scrubs' used to shoot) to talk about the hysterically inappropriate show's target audience, this season's TV icon-on-TV icon action, violating dead butterflies and a few other things probably not fit for print. If it hasn't been made obvious enough, 'Childrens Hospital' is not for children.

Wish you could watch the Jonas Brothers in slo-mo all day? Care what they have to say about their next project? Well, this week's Show Girl will satisfy one of those things ...
I also catch up with TV legend Henry Winkler about his new stint on Web-to-series comedy 'Childrens Hospital,' which is as inappropriate as it is hysterical. Then I check in with 'Last Comic Standing' host Craig Robinson to find out if he's playing favorites with the comedic contestants or remaining impartial.

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.

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.
