    • Pretty sure the picture shown is for this (if that helps) : “The Greatest Event in Television 4 (Adult Swim) | Bosom buddies Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Paul Rudd (Anchorman 2) — with an assist from “sunny” Gillian Jacobs (Community) and others — star in the fourth installment of this comedy, sending up a 1980s-era sitcom.”

  • Rake received a very positive review in the LA Times. I’d be shocked if Greg Kinnear didn’t pull off a big hit.
