Get excited, because Adam Scott is again trying to figure out "The Greatest Event in Television History." You know what they say: the third time's the charm.

The third installment in his "Greatest Event" series will air Nov. 7 on midnight at Adult Swim. Like the previous two, it seems likely that Scott will recreate an opening credits scene from a famous television show intro. But which one? Thus far all we have is one hint: an orange couch on a set.

So where's the couch from? Vulture figured out it's "Too Close For Comfort," meaning Scott will play the role of Ted Knight. But what about the women? That's worth a whole different speculation spot.

Here were Zap2it's other guesses for which show's couch it could be.

"SNICK"

It might not match with the "Hart to Hart" and "Simon & Simon" theme, but "SNICK's" couch does look a whole lot like the one above.

"The Bob Newhart Show"

"The Bob Newhart Show's" couch isn't orange, but it's certainly got a famous place in television history.

"Friends"

"Friends" has got the look right, and at least it's a significant enough part of our television culture to warrant a nod.

"Modern Family"

"Modern Family" might be too modern to quality for being a part of the "Greatest Event in Television History," but at least the couch looks pretty spot-on.

"The Simpsons"

Arguably the most likely of the bunch, "The Simpsons'" couch is both iconic and worthy of a Adam Scott-led live action remake of its intro.
