Don't Trust the Blind! from Paul Scheer
There will be a new episode of "Childrens Hospital" tonight on Adult Swim at Midnight (take that PTC!) and there will be even more "Childrens Hospital" next year as the series was renewed as of today. Stay on Adult Swim for the new episode of "NTSF:SD:SUV" - check out the PSA video clip above!
OK, so last week there was a double-airing of "Louie" at 10:30pm and 11:00pm - we missed the 11:00pm one but it will be on FX later tonight at 1:30am. Tonight FX has a double airing of "Wilfred" at 10:00pm and 10:30pm followed by a new "Louie" at 11:00pm. I don't know why FX is doing this, it makes no sense, this kind of jiggling around only confuses fans of these shows, so stop it! Also note that Louis C.K. will be on "Conan" tonight which puts his series in conflict with his appearance but you're probably OK switching over to "Conan" after "Louie" since C.K. probably won't appear until the 2nd half of the show.
Yes, I got to meet her on the "Parks and Recreation" set in January, and thentalk to her at PaleyFest in March, but can one ever get enough Aubrey Plaza? I apologize (to Aubrey, not to you readers) for being yet another fawning and smitten internet dork but my prediction is that she'll be hosting Saturday Night Live sometime in the next 12 months. You can learn a ton about Plaza's background in her recent (and fantastic) interview on Marc Maron's WTFpod [I was shocked to hear she had suffered a stroke at the age of 20]. She will be in several movies coming out over the next 12 months and starring in at least 2 of them. Congrats to Aubrey! Looking forward to seeing her showcase more of her amazing talent in these films and for the new season of "Parks and Recreation." [And "yes" Aubrey, we'd love to see you do more stand-up!]
