The show — from the executive producers of “Happy Endings” — premiered in the U.S. in October. It is the most-watched Tuesday night comedy this season on any broadcast network among total viewers, and the No. 2 new comedy overall among adults 18-49, based on live +7 data from Nielsen Media Research.
“Marry Me” follows Jake (Ken Marino from “Party Down”) and Annie (Casey Wilson from “Happy Endings”), who after six years of dating are finally getting engaged, which is all Annie seems to want. But Jake and Annie approach things completely differently: Annie is a four-alarm fire, while Jake is calm and laid back about everything. When Annie manages to insult their every friend and family member, the hard-won engagement is in jeopardy.

There’s been a lot of great ensemble comedies in recent years, from The Office to Parks and Rec to Community. However, there’s one short-lived sitcom that doesn’t get enough credit, even if its fans are an incredibly loyal (if small) bunch. I’m talking, of course, about Happy Endings, the ABC comedy that had an awful pilot (and a pretty rough first season) before transforming into one of the funniest shows on TV. Those, like myself, who were big fans of Happy Endings, which was created by David Caspe, enjoyed the series for a lot of reasons: its fast-paced, joke-a-minute style; its countless pop culture references; and, more than anything else, the show’s stellar cast, who, in between one-liners, could somehow turn these cartoonish, over-the-top characters into real people that we could relate to. It’s been tough not having the entire Happy Endings cast together since it ended last year, »

Shulman & Associates is undergoing another staffing change.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Adam Pally‘s run as a Mindy Project series regular will come to an end in early 2015.

Jon M. Chu, the director of the Step Up films and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, is set to develop a new movie project called Can’t Touch This. As most of you know, that is the name of a popular song written by M.C. Hammer. The film is a high school dance comedy that will be set in the 1990s. Having grown up as a teenager in the '90s, the thought of a dance movie called Can’t Touch This made me laugh. I’m glad to hear that it’s going to be a comedy because hard to imagine a movie with a title like that could be taken seriously, unless they tackle it like films such as Dazed and Confused or American Graffiti. Those both had a good balance of drama and comedy.
Chu is definitely the best man for the job. This seems to fit in with »

Eliza Coupe is back on our TV screens with her new series Benched, but we’re still mourning the loss of Happy Endings. After saying goodbye to the ABC series in 2013, there are still some questions that keep us up at night: Did Jane continue to work for the Car Czar? Will Max ever become a functioning adult? How has Alex successfully avoided the meat sweats with her insane love of ribs?
Luckily, Coupe was on hand to dish on some of her favorite He moments, including the time she swapped (crusty) spit with co-star Adam Pally. Check it out above, and catch Benched Tuesdays at 10:30/9:30 C on USA.
