Penny Makes a Drunken Speech on 'Happy Endings' (VIDEO)

'Happy Endings' - 'The Shershow Redemption''Happy Endings' (Wed., 10:30PM ET on ABC) closed its first season as it began: With a wedding. Only it wasn't Dave and Alex giving it a second go, it was an old friend of the gang's, Jason Shershow.

The catch for Penny in this situation was that he was her "safety." They'd previously agreed that if neither of them were married by the time they reached 40, they'd marry each other. Only Shershow, as he explained it, is the guy who'll get mustard on his shirt when he's not even eating it. He's a classic screw-up.

Or at least he was. The gang decides at first that Max is the new Shershow, but when a drunken Penny gets up to give a speech at the new couples' engagement party, she may have just taken the crown. We heard more about it later, but it was when she leaned forward and fell off the stage, taking the podium with her, that we were sold.

"Classic Shershow," Max said, possibly coining a new expression for the gang to use next season. Speaking of which, 'Happy Endings' comes back next season on Wednesdays at 9:30PM ET, getting the sweet spot right after 'Modern Family.'

This show got better as it went along this season, if you could figure out which order the episodes were supposed to air in. With a great lead-in next season, it could be poised to become the breakout hit it deserves to be.

Any one else think Shershow was a dead ringer for the grown up version of Luke from Modern Family?
