Friends ran for years but Matthew Perry can't seem to get to a second season. NBC has cancelled Go On after one season. Perry's other recent efforts -- Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Mr. Sunshine -- were also cancelled after one year.
Go On revolves around Ryan (Perry), a sportscaster who returns to work after the death of his wife. His boss (John Cho) doesn't want him back on the air until he undergoes counseling. Ryan reluctantly joins a support group with one goal in mind: to get in and get out. He discovers that he might be able to help the other members of the group and they might be able to help him as well.

Having averaged a 2.2 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 5.7 million viewers, the comedy was definitely a bubble player. But NBC’s loss could be CBS’ gain: Could this mean he’ll reprise his juicy role on The Good Wife?
This was Perry’s third attempt at joining a series as a series regular since Friends went off the air in 2004. He headlined Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip in »

Chicago – As the networks finalize their schedules, there are more periods than question marks. CBS has already renewed most of their line-up while some programs on other networks have nothing to worry about. At the same time, there are some axes that everyone knows are going to fall. But what about the shows in the middle? What are the biggest question marks this year and which way will they fall off the bubble? Let me guide the way.

Could Matthew Perry fall again? “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and “Mr. Sunshine” had fans but not the ratings to warrant renewal. And now Perry finds himself right on the bubble with his often very funny “Go On,” a show that deserves renewal but finds itself a part of the odd story of NBC in the 2012-13 season. Few networks have ever had »

All four turtles for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles have been cast, and the anticipated film is even up a Fox (of the Megan variety) and Will Arnett. And now it looks as though the project has found its Splinter, and it's a very familiar face for fans of Seinfeld. Deadline reports that Danny Woodburn will play Splinter, the wise rodent friend and mentor to the Ninja Turtles in the live-action CG hybrid reboot. Seinfeld fans will remember Woodburn well for his recurring role as Kramer's pal Mickey in the beloved NBC comedy series about nothing. More recently, Woodburn appeared in Mirror Mirror in the role of Grimm. He also has a number of TV appearances among his recent credits, including Party Down, Mr. Sunshine and Bones. And he plays the recurring role of Mr. Poulos, the landlord in Disney Xd's Crash & Bernstein, so he may very well be a »
Matthew Perry seemed to have a pretty realistic perspective on his career during his recent visit to "Conan." The star of "Go On" talked about being a huge L.A. Kings fan and how he invited one of the players to throw a party at his place after the team won the Stanley Cup.
“Like, my house has a nice view, because, you know, I was on ‘Friends,'" Perry joked.
"I bet you use that line a lot in your life," Conan O'Brien said. "I’ll have the really good steak, because I was on Friends.’”
“But we’re gonna split the bill because I was also on ‘Mr. Sunshine,'" Perry quipped, proving he's as quick with his wit as he is with his line deliveries.
Perry has been honest recently about his struggles with opiates. He battled addiction during those heady years on "Friends," which ultimately led to a stint in rehab. »

Ye, that's your Google Alert for The Mindy Proect and "The Office reunion" going off again.
Army Wives has added another recurring player as the show revamps itself in its seventh season. Brant Daugherty will appear as a recent West Point graduate and a love interest for one of the new Wives, according to Deadline. If Daugherty looks familiar to you, it might be because he appeared on Days of Our Lives as the guy who had an interest in Sonny just when Will wasn't sure how out he could be on? You know, the guy who made us question our loyalty to WilSon before that story could get going? (Our interview with Brant Daugherty here.)

She’ll star opposite the previously announced Anna Faris, who plays a newly sober single mother trying to pull her life together in Napa Valley. The Emmy-winning Janney will play Faris’ own mom (so there’s two moms we’re talking about here; the title refers to Faris’ character).

"Mom," which comes from CBS comedy titan Chuck Lorre and "Two and a Half Men" writers Gemma Baker and Eddie Gorodetsky, is about a single mother, Christy (Faris), who lives in California's wine country -- and has recently gotten sober. Janney will Faris' mother and the root of many of Christy's issues.
(Janney is 17 years older than Faris, incidentally, so she's technically old enough to play Faris' mother. But the average age for first-time mothers in the 1970s was about 21.)
Janney and Lorre have worked together once before; she guest-starred on an episode of "Two and a Half Men" in 2007. If "Mom" gets picked up -- not a bad bet, considering its auspices -- it will be her first TV series »
