Parenthood, Season 5, Episode 16, “The Enchanting Mr. Knight”
Written by Julia Brownell
Directed by Allison Liddi-Brown
Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC
This week, on Parenthood: Julia accepts some blame, Crosby eavesdrops, and Sarah makes a choice
Parenthood knocked it out of the park last week by focusing in on the difficult transitions happening for Julia, Sydney and Victor, and Amy. It was somewhat of a respite, with the various Bravermans coming to each other’s aid and generally being the best versions of themselves. This week that break is extended somewhat, with each of the main storylines in a holding pattern. While the episode is entertaining, it’s far from essential and indicative of the growing pains present this season, with the series that so excellently adapted to a shorter episode order last year straining to expand back to its full 22 episode order.

Feeding America is the “nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity” helping to nourish the one in six Americans (yes, one in six) that doesn’t have enough access to food to sustain a healthy life. Comedy Gives Back is a “social benefit company” co-founded by Amber J. Lawson that connects charities with entertainment industry professionals and other prominent members of society for live streamed events to raise dollars, awareness, and action for a cause. And Yahoo, is, of course, Yahoo. And with all their collective influence and powers combined, the three entities are joining forces for Yahoo Presents Comedy Gives Back (Cbg Live) @ SXSW, a comedy celebration to generate laughs and appreciation for Feeding America’s cause.

Anghus Houvouras asks why we want our celebrities to suffer...
Matthew McConaughey had an enviable 2013. The kind of career reinvention that is so rare I'm hard pressed to find a modern comparison. He was always a likable guy. Since he first rolled up in movies like Dazed and Confused audiences were drawn to this good old boy from Texas who had the looks and the charm of a leading man with swagger to spare. Hollywood tried him as a leading man and major box office draw to mixed results. They never found a real vehicle that would propel him to international super stardom, though they tried. Junk like Sahara was the kind of mainstream movie designed to turn him into a major star, but none of them ever took.
Most of his early success came in the form of the most reprehensible form of movie: The romantic comedy. McConaughey was »

It's morning round-up time, with quick thoughts on last night's episodes of "New Girl," "About A Boy" and "Growing Up Fisher" coming up just as soon as you have any porn set in the Byzantine Era... The conclusion of Linda Cardellini's "New Girl" stint mostly put Abby by the wayside to focus on the other characters' reactions to her. And as much as I enjoy watching Cardellini play comedy, the episode was the better for it — not perfect (this was perhaps the most disposable Winston subplot of the season, other than the shouted-from-another-room "That's for my dingaling!" payoff), but with some excellent sequences like Jess binging on the comforts and solitude of the hotel room, or Coach and Cece plotting about what to do with Schmidt and Abby. (The more the show has moved away from the original conception of Coach and simply let Damon Wayans Jr. be Damon Wayans Jr. — or, »

Michelle Obama will appear in a cameo on the season finale of Parks & Recreation.
Canadian channel Showcase has ordered a fifth season of the very gay inclusive Lost Girl. That should make it easier for Syfy to continue airing it stateside.
The New York Daily News claims that CNN doesn’t know who will take over Piers Morgan‘s soon-to-be-vacated time slot but the channel’s top choice is Rosie O’Donnell. Joy Behar, Ann Curry, Star Jones and Rachel Maddow are also on CNN’s list. That’s »

This week's Revolution contains a Wtf moment to rule them all. Here's Billy's review...
This review contains spoilers.
2.14 Fear And Loathing
Despite numerous calls to Putin, he refused to allow Sochi to go on longer, and I was forced to confront my worst fears. Revolution came back.
The majority of Fear and Loathing (…in New Las Vegas) revolved around the consequences of Bass and Connor being caught and being forced to cage fight to the death. On paper that sounds silly, though actually it wasn’t as daft as that might seem in the show. Instead of just jumping to the fight they allowed time for things to percolate a little, which gave David Lyons (Bass) some unusual breadth to act. He’s probably the best actor here, along with Elizabeth Mitchell (Rachel), but he’s spent most of the last thirty four episodes just smiling and killing people. »
Carter MacIntyre has found a new place to roost. He has joined as a series regular on USA Network’s upcoming comedy, “Benched.” MacIntyre will play Trent, Nina’s (“Happy Endings’” Eliza Coupe) ex-fiancé and professional nemesis. He filled in an as the resident guardian angel on the fourth season of Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva.” Viewers will also remember him from J.J. Abrams’ short-lived NBC spy dramedy, “Undercovers.” His other TV credits include ABC’s “Mixology,” The CW’s “The Tomorrow People” and a recurring role on the final season of ABC’s “Private Practice.” Also read: ‘Office’s »

USA Network's upcoming Eliza Coupe legal comedy Benched has enlisted the services of Carter MacIntyre. The Drop Dead Diva alum has boarded the series as a regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The single-camera series focuses on Nina (Happy Endings' Coupe), a dedicated, career-driven corporate attorney who has a public nervous breakdown after getting passed over for an expected promotion and finds herself working as a public defender. Her personal and professional worlds are turned upside down when she joins the ranks of the legal world's underdogs, and she quickly realizes that the law isn't quite as fair

This story first appeared in the March 7 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. The Happy Endings cast may get a happy ending after all. The stars and producers of the cult comedy, which ABC canceled last summer, all have lined up new projects this pilot season. Elisha Cuthbert will play gay in NBC's lesbian comedy One Big Happy, Zachary Knighton will star in Fox's Weird Loners, Casey Wilson is reteaming with Endings creator (and fiance) David Caspe for NBC's Marry Me, and Eliza Coupe is toplining USA's legal comedy Benched.

The NBC pilot Marry Me was on my radar because it comes from Happy Endings creator David Caspe with Casey Wilson and Ken Marino starring. Now, Tim Meadows has joined the cast as one of Wilson’s gay dads. Is it possible for Caspe to create a gay character as loved as Max turned out to be?
Comic Book Resources has the first look at Arrow‘s Suicide Squad, which will include Shrapnel (Sean Maher). Considering the Squad’s comic book history, there’s a good chance that will be the last we see of Shrapnel. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Shrapnel was the kind of villain I wouldn’t mind seeing killed off (okay most of Arrow‘s villains are that despicable) but that would also mean less Sean Maher.
Becki Newton has found a new pilot role, joining the Fox comedy pilot Weird Loner, »
- Lyle Masaki
Fox's comedy pilot "Weird Loners" has one of the standout titles of this development season, and its cast is shaping up to be pretty strong as well.
Becki Newton has signed on to play one of the title characters in the pilot, which comes from writer Michael Weithorn (creator of "The King of Queens") and director Jake Kasdan ("New Girl," "Freaks and Geeks"). It's about four social misfits who form a bond with one another via living in the same townhouse in Queens.
Newton's character, Caryn, is a "high-strung" dental hygienist with a tendency to go all-in on relationships way too quickly. Her co-stars thus far are "Happy Endings" alum Zachary Knighton and Nate Torrence ("Hello Ladies," "Super Fun Night"); the fourth member of the core group has yet to be cast.
Tim Meadows has joined the cast of Marry Me, a single-camera sitcom from Happy Endings creator David Caspe. The show stars Casey Wilson and Ken Marino as a newly engaged couple who realize marriage may be a little much for them. According to Deadline, Meadows will play one of Wilson's gay dads. Meadows is only 19 years older than Wilson, so it's sort of a stretch to see him as dad-age in relation to her — plus, Marino is 12 years older than she is, putting the husband-father age gap at the creepily narrow seven years. »

USA Network's upcoming Eliza Coupe legal comedy has hired a new intern. Under the Dome alum Jolene Purdy has boarded Benched as a series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The single-camera series focuses on Nina (Happy Endings' Coupe), a dedicated, career-driven corporate attorney who has a public nervous breakdown after getting passed over for an expected promotion and finds herself working as a public defender.

Elisha Cuthbert is staying "Happy" ... although it's not the "Happy" fans want.
"One Big Happy" is about two platonic friends since childhood -- a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano). They live together and try to have a baby via artificial insemination, and they finally get pregnant ... just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life. Oops?
At least "Happy Endings" fans will get to see Cuthbert in another sitcom with "Happy" in the title, right? »
We were thrilled when Nick Zano was cast as the male lead on NBC’s One Big Happy, and there’s more cause for celebration as his Happy Endings co-star Elisha Cuthbert has snagged the female lead. The show “centers on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.”

Remember how when "Happy Endings" premiered everybody was all, "But Elisha Cuthbert isn't funny, at least not intentionally." And then after one season we were like, "Wait. Maybe Elisha Cuthbert is funny if you use her correctly." And then after two seasons, we were like, "Wait. Elisha Cuthbert is just plain funny." And then when "Happy Endings" ended, we were like, "Get Elisha Cuthbert a new comedy, now!" It took a little while, but a network is finally trying. We can confirmed that Elisha Cuthbert has been cast in the NBC/Wbtv comedy pilot "One Big Happy," a multi-cam sitcom »

The Peacock’s new comedy revolves around Lizzy (Cuthbert), who plays a lesbian, and her straight male best friend, Luke (Nick Zano), who have been living together and have been trying to have a baby via artificial insemination.

She’ll pay a lesbian named Lizzy in One Big Happy, a New Normal-like sitcom from Warner Bros. TV. Here’s the official logline: “Platonic friends since childhood, a lesbian (Cuthbert) and her straight male best friend (Luke, played by Nick Zano) have been living together and have been trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time now. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life. »
