," Adam Scott
's lampooning of TV shows that time often forgets, premiered Thursday night on Adult Swim
with a send up of the 1980s sitcom "Too Close for Comfort."
In the bit, Scott and other comedic actors like Kathryn Hahn
and Catherine O'Hara show their "behind the scenes" journey of recreating the opening credits of the Ted Knight
Past iterations of Scott's reenactments have focused on shows "Simon & Simon" (in which Scott co-starred with Jon Hamm) and "Hart to Hart" (where Scott is joined by his "Parks and Recreation" wife, Amy Poehler
). But don't worry if you can't recall the actual TV show "Too Close for Comfort" -- when asked for comment on this story, Variety
TV critic Brian Lowry responded that, while he never watched the show, he thinks his mother did.
Scott will release his next "Greatest Event" installment at midnight on January 23.
