On Wednesday, the network announced it has ordered 14 episodes of "Childrens Hospital" to air in 2012. The entire cast, including Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, Megan Mullally, Henry Winkler and Malin Akerman, will return.

Airing Thursdays at midnight, "Childrens Hospital" is the highest-rated show in the 18-49 demographic during its 15-minute time period, and is one of Adult Swim's most popular programs.

Corddry took the news in stride.

“I’m very pleased and honored by this announcement,” said "The Daily Show" alum in a statement. “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.”
