'Better With You' Series Premiere -- A Very Short Engagement (VIDEO)

'Better With You' Series Premiere -- A Very Short EngagementThe new sitcom 'Better With You' (Wed., 8:30PM ET on ABC) follows the lives of several very different couples. Maddie and Ben (Jennifer Finnigan and Josh Cooke) have been dating for nine years, but have not yet taken the "next step," and tied the knot. Meanwhile, Maddie's younger sister Mia (Joanna Garcia) has decided to marry Casey (Jake Lacy) -- a guy who she's only known for seven weeks. And on the premiere episode, Mia is forced to reveal the reason for the very rushed engagement.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

While having dinner with their parents, Mia is compelled to spill the beans during an argument with her sister. "Call me old-fashioned," Maddie says, "but I think it's appropriate to apply a little thought before making huge life choices." Then, Maddie starts protesting Mia's decision. "Why in the world does she have to get married right now?!"

"Because she's pregnant!" replies her boyfriend Ben. Oh, okay. That makes sense then.

Joanna Garcia & Jennifer Finnigan Talk 'Better With You' (VIDEO)

Better With YouWhen it comes to relationship comedies, it sometimes feels like we've seen it all -- couples in love, lust and those that are eternally monogamous. But 'Better With You' (premieres Wed., Sept. 22, 8:30PM ET on ABC) gives us all three.

The sitcom follows two sisters who could not be more different: methodical Maddie (Jennifer Finnigan) has been with her boyfriend for nine years, with no plans to marry ("it's a valid life choice"). Her impusive little sis Mia (Joanna Garcia) just met a guy and they're already engaged and expecting. And their parents are 35-year veterans to the whole marriage game so, of course, they have a unique perspective on the whole thing.

I caught up with Jennifer and Joanna to find out more about the men in their onscreen lives, their hysterical TV parents and how they're both surprisingly like the characters they're playing.
