It's rare that a 70-second YouTube clip can be absurd, original, observational, and hilarious, but this clip entitled "What actually happens when gay guys see other gay guys and straight people aren't around" is just that gem. If you miss "Happy Endings," star Stephen Guarino is here to warm your heart once more. Yes. I love the "secret language" aspect here, the way the characters seem drawn into becoming supermodels for each other. The "National Geographic" vibe is strong and well-realized. The iced coffee was a nice touch. »
A little over a year ago, my wife wondered why I was still sitting down every Monday night for "How I Met Your Mother," given how much I would complain about it to her afterwards. "Is this one of those hate-watching things?" she asked. I told her that life was too short for hate-watching — especially in this new Golden Age of Too Much Good TV — and that I was with "Himym" til the end because the show gave me enough occasional glimpses of what it was like when it was good that I kept sticking around to see if they could get it together one more time, especially for the finale. (As it turned out, no they couldn't.) "Oh, I get it," she said. "You're not hate-watching. You're hope-watching!" And there it was: Hope-watching. It isn't the act of enduring a bad show for the sole purpose of mocking it, »

“Happy Endings” star Adam Pally and “Enlightened” star Sarah Burns are headlining the new comedy “Slow Learners.” The film, also starring comedy talents like Bobby Moynihan, Kate Flannery, Cecily Strong, Kevin Dunn, Reid Scott and Catherine Reitman, will make its word debut at the Tribeca Film Festival Apr. 20. “Slow Learners” follows two friends and co-workers who are horribly unlucky at love.

The screenplay is by Matt Serword from a story by Serword and [ Read More ]

Update: Marvel has officially confirmed that Joe and Anthony Russo will indeed direct the two-part Avengers: Infinity War movie, due out in 2018 and 2019. Even just five years ago, Anthony and Joe Russo were carving out a pretty healthy career as directors on doomed TV shows like Carpoolers, Running Wilde, and Animal Practice, about a veterinarian whose best friend is a monkey. Of course, they did also work on good shows like Arrested Development, Happy Endings, and Community, but the point is they were just small screen guys doing simple sitcoms with small casts and zero special effects. So, naturally, they're the guys who will be directing both parts of another series that has small casts and zero special effects, The Avengers: Infinity War - Parts 1 and 2. Badass...

As anticipation and excitement build to a fever pitch for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, the blockbuster sequel to the third-largest movie of all time, Marvel is proud to announce Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will join the franchise as the directors of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.

Well, it looks like somebody is getting a taste of their own medicine! And we can't say we feel bad about it. After that devastating long con orchestrated by the Happy Endings writing team—you know, the one where they made everyone believe that there was a fourth season of the show coming?—emotions are running high. All those telling tweets and conspicuous videos could only have been the work of an evil genius. And redemption must be paid. For better or worse, it seems the target of the inevitable revenge plot is former Happy Endings co-producer Lon Zimmet. We started to notice a few suspect tweets that were being retweeted by the Happy Endings writing crew, so we figured some investigating was in »
Fans ABC’s cult favorite sitcom Happy Endings fell victim to a cruel April Fools’ joke on Wednesday after an old Twitter account made them believe the show was going to be revived.

Weird Loners is a tough sell, and though it could become a hit, it has a massive uphill battle in front of it. The main problem, ratings-wise, is that it has too much in common with all the shows that didn’t work for its stars in the past.
Of course, that’s only if you’re looking for ratings.
The shows in question, Zachary Knighton‘s Happy Endings, and Becki Newton‘s The Goodwin Games, were actually great shows, but Weird Loners has a tone, and general style of comedy, that is something of a cross between those shows, and that’s a ratings nightmare.
Worse, the pilot is somewhat nonsensical, having to put forward our establishing excuse that the four main characters get together. It has its moments, but it has to try so hard to force these people together, that it has little time to let them charm us. »

Sometimes you’re single because you haven’t me your counterpart in the Nicholas Sparks movie of your life, and sometimes you’re single because you’re an odd bird. The latter is more or less the deal with the central characters on Weird Loners, Fox’s new comedy series which premiered Tuesday night. Happy Endings alum Zachary Knighton plays Stosh Lewandowski, a morally absent VP who is totally cool bedding the boss’ girl and has no qualms with using a dead guy’s credit card, regardless of the consequences. On a show about hopeless singles who may never find their match, Stosh is anything but depressed. “He’s pretty much incapable of having any human connection with anybody, even friends, family,” Knighton tells us. “I think this guy just doesn’t have the tools to connect with anyone.”\

Talk about anticlimactic.
As many Happy Endings fans had speculated, the mysterious countdown clock tweeted by the show’s writers in February was ultimately nothing more than an April Fool’s Day prank — and a pretty lame one at that.

On Feb. 7, the Twitter handle @HappyWrites published the link to a website, which merely stated the words, “It’s almost a new day,” alongside a clock ticking down the seconds until April 1.

In the real world, April Fools’ Day is that 24-hour period where it’s safe to assume everyone in your life is lying to you, tricking you, or otherwise attempting to destroy your sense of reality — but on TV, isn’t every day April Fools’ Day?

Just think of how many times we’ve been tricked into thinking someone is “A” on Pretty Little Liars, or how many beloved characters we’ve mourned, only to see them again a few episodes later?

Look no further than the title of Fox’s Weird Loners to learn exactly what the freshman comedy is about.
The basic premise: Four disparate thirtysomethings, living in New York City, struggle to forge long-lasting romantic relationships because they’re, well, weird.
Before the series premiere really dives into each of its titular outsiders, it would be easy to think, “Aw, those guys are just misunderstood!” But as the episode continues, we soon realize that, no, these people are a little crazy and also sort of terrible.

If only “Weird Loners” were anywhere near as interesting as its title. Instead, this latest Fox comedy falls into that middle realm of nothing special, featuring a quartet of quirky characters, all in their mid-30s, each of whom remains single for his or her own reasons. Still, delaying marriage isn’t as shocking as it once was, just as these kinds of self-absorbed characters don’t exactly break fresh ground. Fox has enjoyed some recent successes — generating sampling of “The Last Man on Earth” — but there’s nothing here that can’t be seen executed significantly better (and every bit as timely) in any random “Seinfeld” rerun.
Indeed, after three episodes of the series, it’s still something of a struggle to come up with a clear description of it, other than to note that by the end of episode one, all four characters are living adjacent to each other in a Queens townhouse. »

Casey Wilson's due date is fast approaching! The Marry Me actress is expecting her firstborn son with husband David Caspe, whom she met on the set of the ABC sitcom Happy Endings. A radiant Wilson cradles her growing baby bump on the cover of Fit Pregnancy's April/May issue, which also happens to the be the parenting magazine's last print issue ever. Wilson, 34, admits she "had a very rocky first and early-second trimester." "I felt tired and sick and in a fog, like an extreme hangover, until about week 16. I thought, 'Surely, this is the worst part of parenting.' Then I remembered when I was 15, and my mom said I couldn't go out—I pulled two giant brass sconces out »

Above, a group of actors gather to introduce "Sailed: A Dating App For Thirty-Somethings," which matches participants with activities -- watching Netflix, taking tennis lessons or, a personal favorite, "more sleep" -- rather than actual people. It also doesn't let you reject whoever (or, more accurately, whatever) you get matched with: As Zachary Knighton (Dave on "Happy Endings") explains, "It's supposed to be like that... you should be happy with what you get." Hilarious "pairings" abound here, as well as some astute commentary on being of-a-certain-age. Watch the full video above, and be on the lookout for "Weird. »
