New TV Show: Childrens' Hospital

Here's another one I've never heard of, but has premiered early tonight... (Man, I've got to get my nose on TV news!)

Childrens' Hospital
Childrens' Hospital originally started out as a webseries on TheWB and was later ordered into a series by Adult Swim (the Cartoon Network channel, right?). The series is created by comedian Rob Corddry, so I guess that pretty much tells you how sick this show is.

The hospital owner is named Dr. Childrens, by the way.

From its press release ---

Childrens Hospital is based on the Webby Award–winning digital series that debuted on TheWB.com in 2008 and quickly became a Web hit with its twisted take on network medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy and House.

Childrens Hospital explores the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors charged with healthy libidos. Their dedication to their personal lives is relentless, interrupted only by the occasional need to treat sick children.
Checking it out in a while. The episodes run really short, as in 5 minutes tops.
