Not bad for an 11-minute dose of ridiculata that airs on Cartoon Network at midnight: Childrens Hospital has been renewed for a fourth season, the network confirmed to EW. Adult Swim has ordered 14 episodes of the comedy, which was created by and stars Rob Corddry. The fourth season will premiere in 2012. “I’m very pleased and honored by this announcement,” said Corddry in a statement. “I’m also very surprised, given that I write this show when I’m very, very drunk. Season four promises to be a cry for help.”
Party Down fans won’t want to miss the August 25th episode (Adult Swim, 12 a.m. ET), in which Lizzy Caplan, Ryan Hansen, and Martin Starr drop by Childrens Hospital for the ultimate catering gig: Dr. Glenn Richie (Ken Marino)’s bar mitzvah. Marino and Megan Mullally will be living caterer/doctor double lives! The only missing link: Adam Scott.
