'Happy Endings' Preview: Fred Savage, a Steak Me Home Tonight Commercial & More

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 2nd 2011 3:30PM
Tonight's episode of 'Happy Endings' (Wed., Nov. 2, 9:30PM ET on ABC) is one I've really been looking forward to. Fred Savage -- yes, Fred Savage of 'Wonder Years' and 'Princess Bride' fame -- not only directed this episode but also stepped in front of the cameras for a quick cameo playing himself.



I visited the 'Happy' set while they were shooting this episode, titled 'Lying Around,' which finds Savage randomly interrupting a date that Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) is on. We'll also see Dave (Zachary Knighton) taking his food truck to the next level. Yep, that's right, we're talking about a Steak Me Home Tonight commercial. Only problem? Dave is horrible on camera, and Max (Adam Pally) might not be that great behind the camera either. (Couldn't they have gone super meta and had Savage direct the commercial within the show, too?)

'Good Day LA' Interview With 'Happy Endings' Cast Gets Awkwardly Entertaining (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 10th 2011 7:45PM
'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) interviewed the cast of 'Happy Endings' in a segment that started out awkward and stayed right on track until the end. Gigi Graciette was on set with the gang and during introductions, referred to Damon Wayans Jr. as Damon Winans Jr.

"I'm actually CeCe Winans' son," he quipped. Steve Edwards, Jillian Barbarie and Lauren Sanchez, who were phoning in from the studio, laughed hysterically at Gigi's expense.

'Happy Endings' Cast Talks Season 2, Quotables & Dream Guest Stars

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 30th 2011 12:00PM
'Happy Endings' does for me what most shows can't: It makes me laugh out loud at least five times an episode. That sounds like it should be a quote on one of their billboards, but I can't help myself -- the cast is hysterical, the writing spot-on and the jokes perfectly inappropriate.

I gushed about it here and here, and I've even gotten my colleague Mo Ryan to love it*, too. (*OK, that's an exaggeration, but I at least helped shame her into giving it a second chance. I'm still set on reaching my ultimate goal: to get her to love it without laundry.)



I've been re-watching episodes online, patiently waiting for Season 1 on DVD (releases Tues., Sept. 20), but I'm greedy when it comes to good comedy. I want more.

So of course I couldn't wait to catch up with the cast -- Elisha Cuthbert, Zach Knighton, Casey Wilson, Adam Pally, Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr, as well as creator David Caspe -- at their Paley Center screening and panel last night. Check out the interviews after the jump for Season 2 stories, teases for new ah-MAH-zing character quotables, returning guest stars and a few big name celebs they wouldn't say no to either.

'Happy Endings' Creator David Caspe Talks Weddings, Gay Characters & His Plans for Season 2

David CaspeWe love stories with 'Happy Endings,' and showrunner David Caspe should be very happy indeed, given that his freshman comedy was officially renewed for a full second season (22 episodes) at ABC's Upfronts presentation yesterday.

As one of the last comedies standing on what began as a crowded playing field last September, 'Endings' quickly separated itself from the sitcom pack as a midseason replacement, managing to make an impact with only 12 episodes as others fell by the wayside.

Earlier this week, AOL TV caught up with Caspe to hear his reaction on the renewal, his plans for next season and what fans can expect from the remaining three episodes.

(Tread carefully, there are vague spoilers for the season finale at the bottom of the interview.)

Is 'Happy Endings' More Modern Than 'Modern Family'?

by Laura Prudom, posted May 11th 2011 3:30PM
Fair warning: I'm about to hit you with an unpopular opinion. And though I challenge the assertion that an unpopular opinion even exists on the Internet, overzealous melting pot of ideas and ideologies that it is, this disclaimer is my paltry attempt to avoid a comments section full of vitriol, mud-slinging and CAPS LOCK abuse. Because what I'm about to say certainly flies in the face of critical consensus.

So, Unpopular Opinion Alert: Not only do I think that ABC's midseason comedy, 'Happy Endings,' is funnier than 'Modern Family' (and a great majority of other comedies on air this year, for that matter), I also believe that it is a more accurate, modern representation of Western life than the show with 'Modern' in its title.

'Happy Endings' Set Visit: Meet the Cast of TV's Funniest New Comedy (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 6th 2011 12:00PM
How to describe ABC's new sitcom 'Happy Endings' ... it's smart, one of the funniest new comedies I've seen in a while and, well, the cast can say it better than I can: "It's like the show 'Friends' -- you ever see that show? -- but not as white."

Their words, not mine.



Basically, Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) are the perfect couple with the perfect friends. Until she leaves him at the altar on their wedding day. Now those perfect friends -- including gay Max (Adam Pally), single girl Penny (Casey Wilson), and Alex's sister Jane (Eliza Coupe) and her hubby Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) -- have to help them get things back to normal in order to keep their group alive.
