The sitcom "Childrens Hospital" began as a web series before moving to Cartoon Network as part of their Adult Swim block of late-night programming. The program has a show-within-a-show premise, so the real-life actors portray actors who are themselves acting in the show Childrens Hospital, a demented parody of ER and other famous hospital-set programs. The show stars Rob Corddry as Cutter Spindell who plays Dr. Blake Downs, a Patch Adams parody who tries to heal children while wearing garish clown make-up and medical scrubs that always appear to be covered in blood. Each episode of the first televised season of the show consisted of two installments of the web series, augmented with fake commercials created by the "Childrens Hospital" crew. Story arcs for this debut season include the love triangle between Cat (Lake Bell), Lola (Erinn Hayes), and Glenn (Ken Marino), Blake's psychotic insistence that he can cure people with only the power of laughter, and Lola faking a brain tumor.
