Stars: Malin Ackerman, Lake Bell, Rob Coddry, Erinn Hayes, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, Megan Mullally, Henry Winkler Writer: Jason Mantzoukas Director: Rob Schrab Network: Adult Swim, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 9, 2011 What most TV hospital dramas do in one hour, CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL distills into fifteen quality minutes of raunch, laughs and pitch black humor. “Ward 8” even manages to intercut three major storylines into that timeline too – so it’s pretty impressive indeed. The A-story follows the return of Detective Chance Briggs (PARKS & RECREATION star Nick Offerman). He was Dr. Owen Maestro’s (Rob Huebel) former police […]Read On »

The thin line between the web and television is slowly going away, as the hilarious short-form comedy series CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL began as a web series and migrated over to Adult Swim. Created by Rob Corddry who also plays Blake Downs, the clown-faced surgeon, the series sends up medical dramas with absurdist surrealism. The third season of the show arrives tonight on Adult Swim. The beauty of the show is the short-form that Adult Swim offers (under fifteen minute episodes) and Corddry and his fellow executive producers Jonathan Stern and David Wain have mastered this form. It also allows them to […]Read On »
