The program, which co-stars Tony nominee Josh Gad, airs at 10 PM ET; check local listings.

Based on the Swedish series "Ulveson And Herngren," the series, according to production notes, casts veteran actor Crystal as "a comedy legend who is reluctantly paired with Josh Gad, an edgier up-and-coming star, in an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at a fictional late night sketch comedy show where egos and generations collide."

The series also features Stephnie Weir, Matt Oberg and Megan Ferguson.

The pilot, which was directed by Larry Charles, was penned by Charles, Crystal, Matt Nix and Ben Wexler.

The half-hour, single-camera comedy is produced by FOX 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
