Thursday, June 16, 2011: Children’s Hospital

Don't believe the title -- Daily Show veteran Rob Corddry's cult Cartoon Network series is definitely not child-friendly as it creepily combines two things that every kid hates: clowns and hospitals. Grown-ups, on the other hand, have been laughing their asses off at the antics of Dr. Blake Downs and his fellow medical "professionals" for three seasons now, making it one of the most-watched shows in the Adult Swim line-up.

Season 3 kicked off two weeks ago, with a premiere that boasted guest appearances by Jon Hamm and Lisa Edelstein, who recently discharged herself from another wacky hospital that serves as the setting for a certain long-in-the-tooth FOX series. Tonight's episode finds Blake desperately looking for new housing when he's evicted from his apartment, while a new recurring character Dr. Brian (former MADtv player Jordan Peele) starts making the rounds after leaving his cushy gig as a consultant on the popular TV medical drama, Black Hospital. Sounds like Cartoon Network has the perfect spin-off ready to go when Children's Hospital ends its run.

Children's Hospital airs at midnight on Cartoon Network.
