Erinn Hayes was cast as a series regular on Guys with Kids, the new NBC sitcom about guys with kids. She will be replacing Sara Rue, who was originally cast in the part but is staring in ABC's Malibu Country instead. The Childrens Hospital star will play Sheila, the ex-wife of one of the guys and the mother to one of the kids. She's described as a real type-A attorney type. She might also be a ghost or a ventriloquist or she might not.
We talk about Community, Parks and Recreation, and Louie pretty much on a daily basis here at Splitsider. Ask any 10 random visitors to the ‘site, and they’ll likely say one of those three is their favorite current sitcom on TV. So, for the sake of that disappointed, “of course it is/they are…” feeling you get when you see the Beatles at the top of a best bands of all-time list, I didn’t include the two NBC sitcoms and the FX whatever-it-is. There has to be at least SOME intrigue. So, I present to you, the 10 best sitcoms of 2011…not named Community, Parks and Rec, or Louie.
We recently found a venn diagram showing how the casts and guest stars of Arrested Development, Parks and Rec, and 30 Rock intersect. It was very cool, but also it made us think: we can go crazier with this. So allow me to present you with the Parks and Rec/Party Down/Childrens Hospital/The League cast and guest stars venn diagram, showing just how incestuous our favorite comedies really are. It also notes which people are involved with UCB, Earwolf, The State and Human Giant, showing even more overlap and cross-pollination.
For those of you whose medical clown fetish is so, so close to being satiated, you'll be pleased to hear that Cartoon Network has renewed Adult Swim's Childrens Hospital for a fourth season; the fourteen-episode run will premiere in 2012. "I'm very pleased and honored by this announcement," said star Rob Corddry. "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."
