Perhaps some the actors involved?

The 40-Year-Old Version, The Office, Little Miss Sunshine, Get Smart

Strangers with Candy, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, TV Funhouse

Notice any of the writers involved?

Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Lucky Louie, Parks and Recreation, Louie

Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Delocated

Community, Moral Orel, Mary Shelley's Frankenhole
