The show also has a similar level of celebrity firepower: High-profile guests for the ongoing first season include Chris Rock, Rosie Perez, The Beastie Boys and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio. It’s not the most groundbreaking format we’ve ever seen, but Buscemi is as charismatic as ever, and it’s a nice little palate-cleanser for those desperately missing him on Boardwalk Empire.

We love the awesomely whimsical way Legrand sees the world.
