Bang!, Bob's Burgers, and Happy Endings (not to mention his own shows NTSF:SD:SUV and The League). Hopefully, after filming his Modern Family guest spot, Paul Scheer will race straight to the sets of The Office or Community, [...]
The cast and creators of FX's The League took to Reddit today to answer fan questions in between filming an episode from the new season (which kicks off – no sports reference intended – October 11th). Here are some of the best moments from the gang's chat:
