    Maybe they should just change the name of the show to avoid a lawsuit. I suggest “Cedars Sinai.”

    Rob Corddry’s “new” TV show Childrens Hospital premiered on December 8, 2008.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childrens_Hospital

       Yeah, the show’s been around for a while. I think the actual hospital has little room for complaints over the show name at this point.

        Typo, it’s the ad campaign that was new. And the way the ads look, man, I totally get it. IT wasn’t about the name. It was about the ads. The world looks different if you are an actual sick person in a hospital or en route to one every day.

        • Donald Petersen says:

          Yeah, I saw one at a bus stop near my home, with Corddry in a bloodstained smock.  I had to drive past it several times before I could figure out WTF it was doing there.  High-grade nightmare fuel.

    That show is brilliant. My favorite on TV.

    A no-clown policy? I can get behind that. Non-scary clowns are few and far between.

    • Boundegar says:

      I wonder if they have a policy on Pennywise costumes?  It’s technically not a clown.  And kids love it!

    • IronEdithKidd says:

      There is no such thing as a non-scary clown.  Are you thinking of mimes?  I hear clowns like to beat them up.

  5. Francis Delaney says:

    They’re going to love “Hungry Bear”.

  6. MichaelVandiver says:

    That is scary, looks way to much like Glen Beck.

    Well, at least people didn’t mistake this ad campaign for a bomb.

    ‘We do observe a no-clown policy because they can be scary for some kids.’ You mean all kids. That’s right, in a study of 250 children at a hospital every single one said they didn’t like clowns. The clowns were not amused by this study and lodged a protest.  http://digitaljournal.com/article/248959

  9. This is incredibly upsetting. Everybody loves clowns!

    This is one of the best shows on TV, down with the haters. Godamn fun police will have a go at anything. 

  11. Rider says:

    We should just ban billboards all together.

  12. Christopher says:

    In a no-budget film called Encounter I played a clown, and can attest to the fact that all clowns are scary. And not just to kids. I was scary without even trying.
