Adult Swim’s comedies Childrens Hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV have been renewed for a fifth and third season, respectively.
Childrens Hospital recently won an Emmy in the category Special Class Emmy for Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Program, according to Zap2it. The show was first a web program that appeared on The WB.com before appearing on Adult Swim in 2010.
Childrens Hospital has been in the news for the past few days because of billboards promoting the show in Los Angeles, reports the L.A. Times. The ads feature one of the main characters of the show played by creator Rob Corddry in bloody scrubs and clown makeup.
Children’s Hospital Vice President DeAnn Marshall says people are wondering if the ads are from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and declares, “If friends, family or other members of the community raise the issue, please assure them we are not affiliated with the show or its advertisements."
Corddry commented on the story via his Twitter:

NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle) was created by Paul Scheer (The League), who also stars in the show with Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager) and June Diane Raphael (Zodiac).
Scheer told fans on his Twitter, “My Wig & Gun are ready,” in response to the renewal.
The new seasons will air in 2013.
