'Better Off Ted' and 'Desperate Housewives' Stars Get New Shows

Andrea AndersABC's 'Mr. Sunshine' is slowly becoming one of those shows where you say "wow, that sounds interesting." We already know that it stars Matthew Perry as a sports arena manager who rethinks his life when he turns 40 and that Allison Janney will costar with Perry. Now there's more casting news, and it involves another person who once costarred with Perry on an NBC show.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Andrea Anders, who now costars in ABC's 'Better Off Ted,' will play Perry's love interest in 'Mr. Sunshine' (sorry 'Better Off Ted' fans, but it doesn't look like that show is going to get renewed). She'll be joined by Nate Torrence, who costarred with Perry in 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip' (he played Dylan).

Jesse Metcalfe of 'Desperate Housewives' has a new show too. He'll costar in NBC's Jerry Bruckheimer drama 'Chase,' about a Texas law enforcement team.

Tony, the woman can't act. She was one of the worst parts of Joey. Not that there were many or any good parts. She might be good on better off ted but just because she is in it I never watched it. She really turns my stomach and I would hate to see her ruin another show that has actors, quality actors like Allison Janney and Matthew Perry.

I think the real question here is when will ABC air the final 2 Better Off Ted episodes?

Just great, she stunk on JOEY and know she'll be working with another FRIENDS co-star. Can't they just get someone who is funny and knows how to act?

Are you funny? Do you know how to act? Because it doesn't seem like you're either of those thing. If that's the case you really should be criticizing people who do it, and do it well.

I wonder if Andrea Anders was the subject of this blind item:

If so, ABC caved rather quickly.

I don't think Anders is the actress mentioned in the blind item since Ausiello refers to the actress as "up-and-coming actress on a doomed hour drama" and 'Better Off Ted' is a 30-minute-long comedy.

Damnit! Better Off Ted was hilarious. Worst way to hear it is cancelled.
