Ringer | Since this CW series’ 2012 return got pushed back a few weeks [groan], I thought I’d help soothe fans over with some teasers.

Question: You mentioned a while back that the upcoming Glee episode titled “The Proposal” would be a big one for Will and Emma. Any particular reason why? —Radames
Ausiello: Um, because he proposes to her in it? [Cue eye roll, heavy sigh and finger gun to head.] And it’s not just any proposal. According to the question-popper himself, Matthew Morrison, “It’s the most spectacular proposal I’ve ever seen.” Care to elaborate, Mm? “All I can say is it’s wet. »

“When you accidentally give something to someone and you want it back, the best thing you can do is steal it, right?”
That’s Happy Endings‘ Eliza Coupe pondering the moral dilemma at the center of Wednesday’s holiday-centric installment (ABC, 9:30/8:30c), which finds poor, neurotic Jane mistakenly handing out her hubby Brad’s hard-earned Turks and Caicos vacation fund to the housekeeper as a bonus.
The result: hilarity.
“Oh god, it’s crazy,” Coupe tells TVLine. “It would make way too much sense to admit that you’ve made a mistake — that’s something Jane would never do. »

There's good news for the cast and crew of ABC's Happy Endings. Last May, the comedy was barely renewed for a second season. Now, things are looking a whole lot better.
Happy Endings follows a group of six twenty-something friends whose relationship is put to the test when one leaves another at the altar. Despite their fears, they all still remain close. The ensemble comedy stars Adam Pally, Casey Wilson, Damon Wayans Jr., Elisha Cuthbert, Eliza Coupe, and Zachary Knighton.
The series debuted late last season to a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.3 million viewers. ABC used the series mostly as filler and ended up airing almost all of the episodes after 10pm, a timeslot typically reserved for dramas. The show apparently had some fans inside the network though because, despite averaging a 1.7 in the demo with 4.0 million viewers, Happy »
On Wednesday (Oct. 26) night's "Happy Endings," Jane (Eliza Coupe) was dressed as a lone slice of bacon for her suburban Halloween adventure. All because husband Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) wouldn't show his sunny side up and be her oeuf for the night.
Jane probably could have found an egg substitute though. Turns, out, the incredible, edible egg is a common costume choice.
In 2008, Gwen Stefani was an egg to husband Gavin Rossdale's bacon for a Hollywood Halloween party. The following year, Kelly Osbourne pulled off the same couple's costume with then-boyfriend Luke Worrall. And Katy Perry has peformed wearing an egg costume and a halo (a nod to her evangelical childhood where she was made to say "angeled eggs" instead of "deviled eggs").
Seeing as how eggs seem to be more womanly than bacon, Jane might have had better luck getting Brad to don the pork strip.

AfterElton recently had the pleasure of sitting down with several of the stars of ABC's Happy Endings. We've already shared our joint interview with Damon Wayans Jr. and Eliza Coupe. Also, our conversation with Adam Pally and Casey Wilson.
This week, we have the adorable Zachary Knighton, who plays "Dave." We asked him about playing the comic "straight guy" on Happy Endings, and what we can expect for Dave in the coming season. Plus, what exactly he's prepared to do to build his gay fan base. (Shirtless sweat lodge scenes are not out of the question!)
AfterElton: So Zachary, Happy Endings. When did you realize that you were clicking and this thing might go somewhere?
Zachary Knighton: You know, we kind of felt like the underdogs in the beginning. We got the April release date. It just felt like we might be in trouble just in terms of you »

Talk about your star potential! These 10 men are best known for their TV work, but we'd happily pay money to see them at the multiplex. Admittedly, this is a subjective list, and we may have left off many of your favorite TV actors. So if you find yourself disagreeing with our selections, we invite you to share your own list of 10 in the comments!
Anyone who is a fan of Kevin Alejandro knows that he certainly can play a death scene. The actor has had recurring or guest starring roles on over two dozen TV series, and a disproportionate number of those appearances have ended with the death of his character. Alejandro was Justin Suarez' protective tough guy dad Santos on Ugly Betty – Shot and killed in a random convenience store robbery. He was Det. Nate Moretta on Southland – Caught in a gang riot and beaten to death. »

Eliza Couple: Aw, thanks!
Ae: And I want to know, how come you keep ending up with these wonderfully delirious characters? »

Chicago – With so many laughless sitcoms premiering this season on ABC, it’s tempting to overpraise a show that actually manages to be funny. “Happy Endings” has already received a good deal of praise from Hollywood Chicago for its top-notch ensemble and vibrantly witty banter, though it’s not quite in the same league as the shows it wishes to emulate, particularly “Friends” and “Arrested Development.”
In isolated twenty-minute doses, the show is a hoot, but if viewers attempt to watch an entire disc of this frenzied farce, they’ll be left feeling more numbed than amused. The pacing of each scene is so fast that audiences have little time to register whether a joke was indeed genuinely funny or just plain lame. There are so many verbal gags vying to be the funniest that at times the Chicago-set series threatens to devolve into a punchline competition.
DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0

Naturally, Wayans was suit-clad when Zap2it recently stopped by the "Happy Endings" set, so we asked him if he had any idea about his alter ego's profession.
"Everywhere Brad is, he's working it," says Wayans, hinting Season 2 might bring some answers as to what exactly that entails. "You're going to see a lot more work. You might see a boss of his. You might see what he actually does... which I'm not really sure of yet. All I know is that I think Brad is the charmer guy. They sit him in a room with a whole bunch of old white dudes that are rich and [he] makes them laugh."
Outside the office, Wayans seems sure Brad and Jane's (Eliza Coupe) baby plans are still on hold, »

MacArthur recently starred as Rex in Perfect (more) »

Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr. play hilarious married couple Jane and Brad on Happy Endings, and the actors are just as funny in real life as they are on the show. When they recently hopped on the phone to chat with a group of reporters, they cracked everyone up with their answers to questions about things like how Jane and Brad met, how they keep straight faces among such funny costars, and where they'd like to see their characters go. The cast is full of some pretty funny people. How do you guys manage to keep straight faces? Damon Wayans Jr.: I have no tricks. I laugh whenever it's funny, so I waste time. And we actually all try and make each other break, and we like to actually stay in there longer just to make each other laugh. And I don't really think anybody's mastered a technique on not laughing, »
