TV Junkie: 'Childrens Hospital' is Back!

They look happy and normal but what the cast of "Childrens Hospital" puts together is anything but. It is, however, hilarious and it returns to Adult Swim tonight at midnight.

One of our favorite secret pleasures is Rob Corddry's "Childrens Hospital," it goes along with both our paint-huffing habit and a nice dram of the Macallan 18-yr Scotch. The bizarre mini-episodes begin running again tonight at midnight on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim with Jon Hamm in this premiere episode "Run Dr Lola Spratt, Run". Read what Henry Winkler told us about his involvement with the show in our interview or listen to it on our Channel Zero podcast.
The Hollywood Reporter has an incrediblyin-depth profile and assessment of Chelsea Handler and her career. Contrast this personal yet insightful piece with the garbage that the New York Times printed a week ago and you'll see why I was so disappointed. What won't disappoint you tonight is a new episode of "Chelsea Lately" with actress Piper Perabo as a guest, and comics Matt Braunger, Josh Wolf, and Heather McDonald on the roundtable.
It's official, Jane Lynch is hosting the upcoming Emmy Awards - if you weren't sick of "Glee" you probably will be after what will most likely be a completely "Glee"-ified edition of the awards show. I just want to state that I love Jane Lynch, but chances are Fox is going to completely screw up this show and over-pummel us with the Sue Sylvester character.
