'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?)

'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' Slips in a '24' Easter Egg for Star Elisha Cuthbert (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 21st 2011 4:22AM
Elisha Cuthbert, 'Happy Endings' - 'Your Couples Friends & Neighbors'As 'Happy Endings' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC) settled into its regular time-slot, the show threw a little nod out to the television series that brought star Elisha Cuthbert into the spotlight.

Still reeling after running out on her own wedding, Alex (Cuthbert) isn't ready to date. That's bad news for Penny (Casey Wilson from 'SNL'), because the blind double-date she set up just walked in the door. Doing some quick thinking, Penny tries to convince Alex that she is indeed ready to date.

When her first metaphor about a cougar trying to eat Alex doesn't work, she tries another approach.

'Happy Endings' Premieres with Wedding Walkout and Birthday Disaster (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 14th 2011 2:21AM
'Happy Endings' - 'Pilot'There have been so many bad 'Friends' clones over the years, you might be inclined to just dismiss any new ones that come along. 'Happy Endings' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on ABC) had a strong creative start, though, and may just buck that trend. The premiere introduced us to our cast of characters, and did a great job of giving us reasons to care about all six of them.

That's not easy to do in a pilot, and even harder when there's some pretty heavy storytelling going on. While things kicked off with Alex walking out on Dave at their wedding, it culminated in a birthday party celebration for Penny who was turning 30, but lying about her age to impress her new boyfriend.

Penny's not the only liar, though. According to Max, her boyfriend Dave is hiding something pretty big as well.

'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.

Canadians Invade Your TV in 2010-2011

by Mark Wigmore, posted Jun 1st 2010 11:32PM
Most of us have wrapped up the 2009-2010 TV season, aside from the watching blitz you have planned for a series on DVD or a couple of stragglers on your PVR. A summer of reality television, the World Cup, and 'Mad Men' (thank God!) are what we have to look forward to.

With all this closure comes the push to generate excitement around the upcoming fall season, with major networks announcing their renewed favorites and a fresh batch of debuts at 'upfronts'. Three Canadian stars will be seen on three different networks come October.

Here, we take a moment to see where they've been, and where they are going.

Matthew PerryAnother 'Friends' alum is headed to ABC.

According to EW.com, ABC has officially picked up the comedy series 'Mr. Sunshine,' starring Matthew Perry as the manager of a local sports stadium who has a midlife crisis on his 40th birthday. Allison Janney co-stars.

The news should come as little surprise, as it was reported last week that the pilot had tested well in screenings.

Perry will join former 'Friends' co-star Courteney Cox ('Cougar Town') on the network, though no word yet on whether 'Mr. Sunshine' will air on ABC's Wednesday-night lineup.

It Looks Like It's Over for 'The Forgotten'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 3rd 2010 3:02PM
The ForgottenChristian Slater needs to pick better TV shows. Or at least pick TV shows that have some sort of chance of surviving. That's easier said than done, of course, or I'd be the most successful programmer in network history. Last year Slater starred in the short-lived 'My Own Worst Enemy' (a show I actually kinda liked) and now it looks like ABC's 'The Forgotten' is going to be short-lived too, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The March 23 episode was supposed to be the season finale, but ABC is pulling the show before then and the March 9 episode will be the season finale instead (no episode on March 16 either). And since ABC doesn't seem to have enough faith in the show to even let a couple more episodes air, we can pretty much bet that those "season finale" tags will be changed to "series finale" tags.

Maybe Slater should star in one of those 'NCIS'/'CSI'/'Criminal Minds' spinoffs that seem to happen every year. I can picture that.

Elisha Cuthbert Joins Christian Slater on 'The Forgotten' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 10th 2010 3:12AM
<a href='My Own Worst Enemy' didn't fare so well with viewers, but maybe Christian Slater will have better luck with 'The Forgotten' (Tues., 10PM ET on ABC). He stars as Alex Donovan, an ex-cop who takes on cases after they hit a dead end with the police.

Looks like Elisha Cuthbert doesn't plan on spending too much time as Kim Bauer on '24,' because she's joined The Forgotten Network. All she has to do is "show up," so how hard can that be?

Elisha Cuthbert and Christian Slater on Finding 'The Forgotten'

by Chris Jordan, posted Feb 8th 2010 4:30PM
Come Tue., Feb. 9, Elisha Cuthbert, who's had some memorable scenes in her career, is joining Christian Slater on the ABC mystery drama 'The Forgotten' in a recurring role. It's not the first time the two have worked together -- they paired on the big screen in the 2007 dark comedy 'He Was a Quiet Man,' in which she played a quadriplegic and Slater an office drone with homicidal fantasies.

On 'The Forgotten,' Cuthbert's Maxine Denver joins a team led by Slater of non-professionals who help law enforcement identify Jane and John Does. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced series, which premiered in the fall, marks a new television venture for Cuthbert, who's best known as Kim Bauer, daughter of Jack Bauer on Fox's '24,' and for the movies 'Old School,' and 'Love Actually.'

We chatted with Slater and Cuthbert about the similarities between 'Quiet Man' and 'The Forgotten' -- besides the dead bodies -- and about how 'The Forgotten' has started to solve real-life John and Jane Doe mysteries.

Review: '24' - '9:00PM-10:00PM'

(S08E06) "If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, we don't do that anymore." - Hastings to Jack, on using unsavory methods with the Russians


Oh, snap. The Russians may have bought Renee's cover, but that doesn't mean she's out of danger. Just the opposite, especially given the fact that she's a loose cannon and doesn't seem to care whether she lives or dies at this point. Or maybe that's not necessarily true.
