    I only learned about this show a couple months ago. Rob Corddry is like the creator of the show. He was on this geek show on Howard Stern's Sirius channel. I had never heard of it before hearing him on this show. He was promoting the first 2 seasons on DVD and the 3rd season starting soon.

    The show is on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim and only runs 15 minutes. I'm sure many people would find it to be offensive, but I love this show. I'm just curious if anyone else around here watches the show.

    Little bit of trivia. Parts of the show are filmed at the same hospital Scrubs was filmed at. I noticed it immediately from the outside shot of the entrance. I did a google search on this and learned that this hospital was actually demolished this summer.

    One of best shows on TV. I think the first two seasons are better than the current one but each episode tends to have 2-3 great laughs. Love it.

    Love it! I'm so not their target audience... There are bits that make me groan, but mostly it's hilarious. :) I am cracking up thinking of some of the bits - like the intro to the 70s episode. HA!! Disco. Afro. Rubik's Cube. "Eeeeeey!" :D

    i'm also a fan, didn't really like the stage show episode, but they redeemed themselves with night shift ;)

    and more random trivia, the hospital is supposed to be located in brazil, sometimes they show the cast using other names in the credits, and michael cera does the intercom voice

    Henry Winkler was on another show on Howard Stern's Sirius channel last week. They talked about this show. He said that when they give him lines, he just goes with it. That he reads over the lines and just scratches his head why he'd say something like that. He doesn't bother asking and just says them. :)

    I noticed it was the same hospital as Scrubs immediately. The hallway where they film a lot of the scenes is laid out exactly the same as it was on Scrubs with the Nurses station to our right and the rooms on the left.

    Anyway, I just started getting into this during this summer after reading a review of what to watch this summer and they recommended it. It's so wrong but it's funny. It's like a Scrubs / ER parody.

    Has anyone been watching NTSF:SD:SUV:: after Childrens Hospital? I don't know what to think of this new show. I'm really leaning towards it being awful

    I am. I'm not leaning any direction on it yet, I think of it as odd, not quite catching the flavor of it. Though if I were still smoking weed, I'm sure it'd be hilarious.

    Loved the first two season's of Childrens', but struggling to watch it this year as it just isn't very funny anymore. Last two episodes have showed some improvement.

    NTSF:SD:SVU has some good elements to it, but is hit and miss. Paul Scheer and his wig are the best part of the show. I hate the chief and think she just isn't able to do comedy. Also surprised that Martin Starr and June Diane Raphael aren't better in this since I have liked them in other stuff.

    The episode where they were ghost hunting and the guy (Greg?) was revealing that he was molested by his uncle was so awesome.

    S4 was pretty weak, but I'll be back for S5. It's 12 minutes a week :)

    Got bored with it after awhile and cut the show loose. Same thing pretty much every week to the point it got dumb.
