'Mr. Sunshine' -- Matthew Perry Gets Caught in a 'Food Fight' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Mar 24th 2011 1:15AM
'Mr. Sunshine' -- Matthew Perry Gets Caught in a 'Food Fight' Certain foods -- things like chocolate, or even oysters -- are considered aphrodisiacs: Love drugs. However, food definitely does not work as an aphrodisiac on the latest 'Mr. Sunshine' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on ABC).

When the gang goes out for a nice dinner, Alonzo (James Lesure) learns that his girlfriend Alice used to mess around with Ben (Matthew Perry). But since Alonzo is the nicest guy in the world, he can't confront the two of them directly. Meanwhile, Alice (Andrea Anders) is expressing confusion about whether she should order the mashed potatoes or the tater tots.

"Why don't you have both at the same time?" Alonzo suggests. "You don't seem to have a problem with that."

Matthew Perry Enjoys Making Out With Matt LeBlanc's GirlfriendOn 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Matthew Perry of 'Mr. Sunshine' points out why he chose actress Andrea Anders, girlfriend of former 'Friends' co-star Matt LeBlanc, to star on his new show.

"It's just a kind of a small world thing. She just came in and she read better than everybody else. She's beautiful, she's really funny, she knows her way around a joke, and she happens to be with Matt LeBlanc," said Perry.

Andrea Anders on Dating 'Friends' Men On and Off Screen

Andrea Anders is in a 'Friends' love triangle ... sort of. While playing the love interest of 'Mr. Sunshine' star Matthew Perry, Anders is also living with another former 'Friends' cast member, Matt LeBlanc, who is now starring on Showtime's 'Episodes.'

"It was actually pretty funny. I would come home from work and tell Matt about things we'd done on the set and things Matthew Perry had done, and he'd say, 'Oh, yeah. I remember him doing that on our show,'" Anders told PopEater.

"They're both always giving each other credit for doing funny things: 'Oh, that was straight from LeBlanc.' 'Perry came up with that.' Then there's this big gray area where they can't remember which one originated something because they both did."

Jay Harrington to Star in NBC's 'Nathan vs. Nurture' -- Bad News for 'Better Off Ted'?

by Laura Prudom, posted Feb 18th 2010 12:00PM
Things are looking grim for 'Better Off Ted,' following the news that star Jay Harrington has landed the lead role in NBC's comedy pilot 'Nathan vs. Nurture.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the casting is still formally in second position to Harrington's role on 'Ted,' meaning he would have to give up the new role if the unexpected occurred and both 'Ted' and 'Nathan' were picked up for next season.

As things stand, on the bubble comedy 'Ted' is unlikely to return for a third season, having been placed on hiatus with its final two second season episodes yet to air.

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

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 10th 2010 3:33PM
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.

Jane After Dark: Catching up with Better Off Ted

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 2nd 2010 11:00AM
Better Off TedI'm kind of bummed that it looks like Better Off Ted might be on its way out. Maybe not, though. Mike's review this week sounded like it might get a reprieve from the axe. Who knows, really? But either way, I'm glad to have found this quirky series, and have been watching season one on DVD this week.

It's kind of a cross between The Office and Arrested Development. If you're not familiar with the show, it takes place in the Research & Development department of Veridian Dynamics, a corporation with lots of cubicles and fluorescent lights.

Ted (Jay Harrington) is a pleasant guy who runs things and answers to Veronica (Portia de Rossi), an uptight boss who wears her hair pulled back so tight it's amazing she can even breathe.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Eleven babes worth watchin'

by Mike Moody, posted Dec 13th 2009 10:39AM
Olivia WildeOn the eleventh day of Festivus, TV gave to me ... eleven babes worth watchin' .

Festivus is here, and is there a better way to celebrate than by taking stock of all the alluring TV hotties we've been obsessing over this year? I think not. (It's sure a beats counting down the year's stinkiest shows, anyway.)

For this year's list, we decided to stray a little from last year's Maxim covergirl-friendly tally to highlight the small screen starlets who charmed us not only with their hotness, but also with their talent. So head after the jump as we celebrate the 11th day of Festivus by counting down 11 babes worth watchin'.

Better Off Ted: Bioshuffle - open thread

Better Off Ted

Why is ABC running new episodes of Better Off Ted during the summer? Not that fans aren't incredibly happy to see new episodes, but I would have thought that ABC would rerun the earlier episodes of the show and then start running new ones this fall (the show has been renewed for the fall).

Should ABC renew Better Off Ted? - open thread

Better Off Ted

ABC's new comedy Better Off Ted - which aired last night - is one of the on the bubble shows. It certainly has its fan base, but it's also one of those quirky sitcoms that just "feels" like one you can imagine ABC canceling after one short season, and then it goes away forever. And then we grumble about it for months and hope for a DVD release. What do you think? Do you think the show deserves a second season or do you think it's ... better off dead (sorry)?

Better Off Ted -- An early look

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Mar 17th 2009 10:01AM
[L-R]: Lem (Malcolm Barrett), Ted (Jay Harrington), and Phil (Jonathan Slavin)
Better Off Ted, ABC's new workplace comedy, debuts Wednesday at 8:30PM ET. However, the timing of the show's release couldn't be more fortuitous... or disastrous, depending on how you look at it. The show revolves around an ethically inept conglomerate, Veridian Dynamics, and as a result, viewers will unavoidably end up thinking about everything that's wrong with our economy - from Bernie Madoff to AIG to Enron (a stretch yes, but still relevant). As a comedy, it's a decidedly glass half-full approach. Unfortunately, this comes at a time when most viewers will probably have more in common with a glass half-empty mantra. Will it work? I'm thinking yes.

The Class: The Class Goes to a Bar

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 7th 2006 12:01AM
The Class(S01E07) Maybe the writers of The Class are getting the hint and following what seems to be a pretty obvious suggestion: take out storylines! Let the characters breathe! Get rid of the high-strung socialite and the husband she doesn't realize is gay! This episode managed to do all of that; we don't see Holly and Kyle (and Holly's Paul Lynde sound-alike husband) at all, and Duncan and Nicole get some time to interact without Yonk in the way, and take Lina and Richie along for the ride. And, of course, Kat and Ethan do their goofy stuff, this time in a bar (notice most of the episodes have been named for the Kat/Ethan story of the week? I just figured that out tonight... I'm slow, I guess).

So, now that things are a bit smoother and less cluttered, there'd be more room for the funny right? Well, that's what you might think, but you'd be wrong.

The Class: The Class Goes Trick or Treating

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 23rd 2006 10:44PM
The Class(S01E06) For a fleeting second, I thought The Class was just going to concentrate on two stories this week. For the first act, it looked like all we'd see was Richie, Duncan and Yonk in Atlantic City and Holly's adventures at the petting zoo. Yes, one of the storylines would be a Holly storyline, but I was glad that the writers decided to smarten up and rotate out one storyline per week, leaving more room for silly things like effective jokes and character development.

But then I saw Lina in an FDR costume and Kat being Kat, and I just went, "oh crap."

The Class: The Class Gets Frozen Yogurt

The Class(S01E05) This review is not going to be pretty, boys and girls, because I'm starting to lose my patience with The Class. There's too many stories and not enough laughs. Right now, the only storyline that has any redeeming qualities, the constant efforts of Kat to bring Ethan out of his nice guy shell, really is just being used as a goofy side-story to all of the other, more emotional stories. But the problem is, those stories are becoming less entertaining by the week, and the "complications" that the writers are throwing in are just distractions.
