by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 8th 2011 7:30AM
'Happy Endings' - 'Grinches Be Crazy'Most parents are familiar with those homemade coupons that their kids give them. For some reason, Alex continued to do that into adulthood until finally, Dave called her on it in this week's holiday-themed episode of 'Happy Endings' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on ABC).

To prove the coupons were sincere, Alex decided to allow Dave to cash in all the coupons he'd received throughout the year, which included a nice indoor beach party. That became the replacement vacation for Brad and Jane after they gave their trip away to their housekeeper.

'Happy Endings' - 'Full Court Dress'There are people we encounter in our lives who are great in those particular moments. But those are the only types of experiences we have with them, and it might be best to keep it that way, as Dave and Brad discovered the hard way on 'Happy Endings' (Tue., 9:30PM ET on ABC).

Short a guy for their pick-up game, they invited Brad's delivery guy Drew (Rob Riggle). He and Brad were totally cool in those brief encounters when Brad signed for a package. But when Drew got out on the court, he really freaked the guys out.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Happy Endings' Spoofs a Popular Reality Show -- Figure It Out!

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 22nd 2011 8:40PM
'Happy Endings' - 'Full Court Dress'Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) is taking her love of fashion to the next level on this week's 'Happy Endings,' designing a dress for sister Jane (Eliza Coupe) to wear to a charity event.

In 'Full Court Dress' (Wed., Nov. 23, 9:30PM ET on ABC), the quirky Chicago shop owner reveals that she's been figuring out how to sew with an online sewing class, and the Web site may or may not be a total rip-off of 'Project Runway,'* complete with the second step-cousin of guru Tim Gunn,** Nick Gun, as the instructor.

(*For legal purposes, we should probably say that it isn't a rip-off. Even though it is.)
(**There's really no relation whatsoever.)


We've got the exclusive sneak peek at the blinking, flashing, fluorescent mess of a Web site for Situation Walkspace. Let's take a look, shall we? And fair warning: Get ready to be suffocated by the cutting edge of fashion.

TV Shows We're Most Thankful For

by AOL TV Staff, posted Nov 21st 2011 10:30AM
HomelandWe're thankful for a lot of things, but we're all about TV around here, and so is this list. Yes, it's time once again for the annual staff picks for TV Shows We're Most Thankful For.

There's plenty to choose from -- and obviously we had to narrow it down quite a bit -- but each of us has decided on one show that makes weekly viewing and analysis fun and worthwhile, for whatever reason.

Some of us appreciate a good laugh above all, some put dramas on a pedestal, and others are into vampire dramas with a hint of Somerhalder. You get the idea.

Take a peek at our quick list, then please share your own show that makes you thankful in the comments. Gobble gobble!

'Smallville' Star Brings Wonder Woman to 'Harry's Law,' James Wolk Finds 'Happy Endings' and More Casting News

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 16th 2011 10:50AM
Erica Durance Wonder Woman Harry's Law'Smallville' actress Erica Durance will guest star on 'Harry's Law' as Wonder Woman ... sort of.

According to TVLine, Durance will appear in a Season 2 episode of 'Harry's Law' as a "psychologically infirm" woman who thinks she's the DC Comics character. In her Wonder Woman persona, Durance's character seeks revenge on those who commit domestic abuse.

Durance will appear in the 11th episode of 'Harry's Law,' which does not have an airdate yet.

Audiences may recall NBC produced a pilot for a new Wonder Woman series from 'Harry's Law' creator David E. Kelley. The pilot never made it to series.

No word on whether Durance will don the iconic ensemble.

ABC Gives 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Last Man Standing' & 'Happy Endings' Full Season Orders

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 4th 2011 7:15AM
Snow White and Prince CharmingThe fall has been kind to ABC; after recent full season orders for 'Revenge' and 'Suburgatory,' the Alphabet network is doubling down with pickups for two more of their freshman series, fantasy drama 'Once Upon a Time' and Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing.'

Though 'Once' has only aired two episodes so far, it's already the highest-rated new drama of the season, managing an average 12.3 million viewers and a robust 4.0 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demo. Allen's male-skewing comedy has seen some audience erosion since its premiere, but it's still performing well on Tuesday nights (12.7 million and a 3.7 demo), where ABC had previously struggled to make an impact.

Sophomore comedy 'Happy Endings' has seen series-high ratings in recent weeks, and finally seems to be catching on with viewers in its post-'Modern Family' slot, which has earned it a full 22 episodes. (Ah-mah-zing!)

Bad news for 'Pan Am' and 'Man Up' though ...

'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?)

ABC Comedies Hit Series High Ratings

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 27th 2011 3:30PM
Happy Endings Ratings HighIt's ah-mah-zing what a little World Series rain delay can do for shows on other networks.

'The Middle,' 'Suburgatory' and 'Happy Endings' all reached ratings highs thanks to a distinct lack of new episodes across the other major broadcast networks.

'The Middle' attracted 10.2 million viewers and had a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Freshman comedy 'Suburgatory' had a 3.4 18-49 rating and dipped a bit in total viewers to 9.8 million. A 'Modern Family' rereun did 11.4 million viewers and a 4.4 rating and a new 'Happy Endings' episode was watched by 8.3 million viewers with a respectable 3.5 rating.

Alex Is Mistaken for a Man at a Halloween Party on 'Happy Endings' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 27th 2011 2:00AM
'Happy Endings' - 'Spooky Endings'In order for this guy on 'Happy Endings' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on ABC) to think that Elisha Cuthbert's character Alex is a man, he must be incredibly drunk or legally blind. We don't care what her voice sounds like -- it's hoarse and low from being sick -- she is far too beautiful a woman to be mistaken for a man.

This was at a Halloween event, and Alex wasn't even dressed as a man, or even in a gender-neutral costume. She was dressed as Marilyn Monroe and clearly a woman, sporting cleavage and everything!
