Childrens Hospital Misses Party Down Too

And now for the second quasi–Party Down reunion of the day: Adult Swim's Grey's Anatomy spoof Childrens Hospital has an episode planned for this season called "Party Down," with cameos from PD's Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, and Ryan Hansen, in which, according to creator Rob Corddry, "It’s discovered that Glenn has never had a bar mitzvah, so Malin Akerman’s character Valerie throws him [one], and it’s catered."
