Adult Swim's Childrens Hospital isn't just about hot stars — like Megan Mullally, Malin Akerman, Ken Marino, Henry Winkler and Rob Corddry — coming together to play doctor. No, it's much more than that!

Corddry, who created the series, dishes on how the idea for the show really came to be in this exclusive video clip from the Childrens Hospital: Complete First & Second Seasons DVD release, out on Tuesday. Check it out below:
As the TV season comes to a close, TV Guide Network takes a look back at the best finales of all time.
From the cut-to-black ending of The Sopranos to the vaguely spiritual final act of Lost, Jason Alexander counts down the most unforgettable finales. The special also features interviews with stars of these talked-about finales, including Will & Grace's Megan Mullally, Dallas' Patrick Duffy and Larry Hagman, M*A*S*H's Mike Farrell and The Shield's Walton Goggins.
What's better than breakfast meat and smoother than the jazz stylings of Duke Silver? That'd be Nick Offerman, the Parks and Recreation star who so brilliantly embodies Ron Swanson — director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department and proud libertarian. As the sitcom winds down Season 3, we plied the deadpan actor with cocktails for a peek behind the moustache.
Amy Poehler, Adam Scott
When we last left Pawnee — a ridiculously long eight months ago — Parks and Recreation's romantic entanglements were only beginning to get, well, really tangled.
Visiting auditors Ben (Adam Scott) and Chris (Rob Lowe) took a shine to Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ann (Rashida Jones), but Leslie kind of hated Chris' cynical attitude toward government, and Ann kind of hated that she got drunk and hooked up with Chris. Then there's April (Aubrey Plaza), who really hated Andy (Chris Pratt) for letting Ann...
One of How I Met Your Mother's mysteries is about to be revealed.
John Lithgow will play Barney Stinson's estranged father, Jerome Whitaker, Cobie Smulders confirmed on TV Guide Network's Hollywood 411.
Parks and Recreation
In a rousing moment from the Season 3 premiere of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope excitedly rounds up her disbanded parks department. Tom's been working at Foot Locker, Ron's been in his wood shop, and Jerry ... well, Jerry's been relaxing happily since Pawnee's local government went out of business at the end of last season. With her troops gathered, Leslie makes her Hail Mary play, a bold proposal to the state auditors threatening to shut down the broke branch for good.
"She's like, 'Go big or go home,'" says Amy Poehler, who plays TV's chirpiest and most resilient civil servant. "'I say we put on this giant harvest festival. We try to get all the vendors, all the people in town, we raise the money we need for the parks department budget. If we don't make it, we're all fired.'"
Leslie’s high-stakes dilemma is not unlike the one faced by Parks as the show nears its return.

The transition from web series to TV could have been tough for the often-grotesque medical satire Childrens Hospital -- a show where doctors get turned on by life-threatening surgeries and saving patients takes a backseat to highly choregraphed dance numbers, among other things. Fortunately for the show's fans, it isn't going to primetime: it's going to Adult Swim, where it's freakishness will fit in just fine.
"Adult Swim has the closest thing to an outsider's sensibility," executive producer Jonathan Stern says. "We figured that was the closest we could come to being on television without actually people thinking we were on television...
