"There were a lot of changes at the show that could be exciting. Let's see what they spent the entire summer coming up with," Teller as Peyton said, before he and Dismukes took part in a live analysis of the season premiere through a parody of the Manning brother's Monday Night Football ESPN show.
After criticizing the series, the brothers then summoned Jon Hamm, who played himself, to weigh in on the premiere. "Sometimes they need to bring in a real celebrity when the host isn't that famous," said Hamm, 51, poking fun at Teller's hosting gig.
