Among the new releases, the two hammiest characters on TV make appearances: Max Greenfield, Schmidt on "New Girl," stars in a spot for McDonald's Sirloin Third Pound Burger, and Jim Parsons, Sheldon on "The Big Bang Theory," stars in another Intel spot, this one for the i7 Processor.
And, reunited after a long hiatus from their "Coneheads" characters, Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin appear in a spot for State Farm. The alien couple famous for "Saturday Night Live" sketches and a 1993 film bicker as Aykroyd takes a late-night phone call with State Farm. "With whom are you communicating?" Curtin asks.
Aykroyd responds, "Jake from Planet State Farm."
