Cancelled:
- Happy Endings
- How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)
- Red Widow
- Body Of Proof
- Malibu Country

They're apparently trying to shop Happy Endings to other networks. I hope that happens. And while they're at it, I wouldn't mind more Don't Trust The B**** in Apt. 23, but I think that ship has sailed.

Picked up for next season:
- Scandal
- Grey’s Anatomy
- Modern Family
- The Middle
- Castle
- Last Man Standing
- Once Upon A Time
- Revenge
- Suburgatory
- Nashville

Yeah! It's been my favorite comedy of the last couple seasons, even though it's sometimes inconsistent. With Go On (which certainly wasn't great, but it was OK) also gone, there are very few network sitcoms left that appeal to me. Hopefully Mindy Project will survive, and Big Bang Theory remains solid. Modern Family, which was once the best comedy on, has really gone downhill.

Modern Family has been fine. Its what network executives think a family sitcom should be. As long as you accept that, its solid show. Its not s1-3 Community, but its solid. (That said, I'm about two weeks behind in my MF viewing, so if the show has been really bad these last few weeks, I don't know.)

Happy Endings was my show to pull up on demand and pass out to each night. It would take me like a week to work through an episode. I'll definitely look to get that on Blu ray. Its probably the best show I've only half-watched in a few years.

From what I heard, USA is a very strong candidate to get 'Happy Endings' on their network. Not a bad network but if it was up to me, I would try it out on TBS and pair it up with 'Cougartown'.

Characters are welcome at USA. Plus Big Show and David Otunga and such could do guest spots.

My personal friend AlbySure and I challenged ourselves to come up with six pitches for WWE guest stars on Happy Endings.

Albert has
1) Penny dates Dolph Ziggler in a story loosely inspired by his real-life relationship with Amy Schumer.
2) Damian Sandow and Max become fast rivals at the trivia night at Rosalita's.
3) Santino is Dave's new wacky landlord.
4) Jane struggles selling a giant-sized car to the Big Show.
5) Alex trains Tons of Funk for an eating contest.
6) Cody Rhodes shares grooming tips with Brad.

I've got
1) Jane gets in a tiff with the Bella Twins, claims that she is also a twin and goes to great lengths of comedic escalation to maintain the facade.
2) fashion magnate Vickie Guerrero tries a leveraged buyout of Alex's store.
3) Dave and romantic rival Justin Gabriel compete for a girl's attention via increasingly ridiculous bangs styles.
4) Brad Maddox, groom of traditional season finale wedding.
5) Scotty and Christian sell downloadable meth.
6) Max dates Kofi Kingston.

I bequeath all intellectual property to David Caspe and Bonnie Hammer.

C'mon, the show is set in Chicago and NEITHER of you came up with a CM Punk guest spot?

I'm gonna miss Penny and 'dem thangs.

I had a feeling this show wouldn't last too long. The humor can get quite abstract with it's obscure late 80's and 90's references and callbacks to previous episodes. HE is kind of like Venture Bros. and Scrubs in that regard. Once Jane went "full Gallagher" trying to impress her father one episode (which I loved) I knew fans would start dropping off due to being lost in the show's brilliantly-executed but almost too quick pacing. Jokes and plot for the show are so elaborate and rapid-fire I had to replay several scenes an episode to catch the full jokes.

I think the show was too quick and weird for ABC's demographic. USA would be a great network for Happy to land on in my opinion.

Too weird to live, to rare to die.



I believe in The Shield....

I bought one of the cheap existing ones. I have seen it a million times on TBS but I don't care. Maverick = awesome in all ways.
