Best Friends Forever (2012)
This news is particularly heartening, as the show had appeared set for cancellation following USA’s announcement that it would be moving away from half-hour comedies and focus on hour-long dramas going forward.

The fairly classic set-up has St. Clair’s Emma as the hard-driving career woman (she’s initially seen working in Shanghai) returning home to throw a baby shower for her bosom buddy Maggie (Parham). Still, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out Maggie’s husband (Brad Morris) is a bit of a worm and that Emma will ultimately be moving in to help guide
Now USA is giving Parham and St. Clair another shot with Playing House, in what is basically the same show, except that we’ve replaced the boyfriend with a baby. In this version, Maggie (Parham) is pregnant, and Emma (St. Clair) is flying back to her small town home for the baby shower. Again, the pair were once best friends,

Also starring Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, Bff couldn’t draw a crowd quick enough for NBC, and “new world” that it is, viewers apparently weren’t taken with the female-centric comedy. It was a pretty good show actually, but it was one that even the most optimistic of fans had to be nervous about,
Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, the duo behind NBC's "Best Friends Forever," return to the small screen this month with their new comedy, "Playing House," and AccessHollywood.com has an exclusive first look at the show.
As childhood best friends, Maggie Caruso (Parham) and Emma Crawford (St. Clair), have a lifetime of fun memories together, but they're about to embark on a whole new chapter after Maggie - who is pregnant - learns her husband (played by Brad Morris) has been cheating on her with an alarmingly muscular German woman.

The CW’s fall schedule is interesting to say the least. Supernatural is moving to Tuesday, following The Originals. Historical soap Reign gets the prime post-Vampire Diaries slot while The Carrie Diaries gets exiled to Fridays.
Meanwhile, Warehouse 13 isn’t the only show to get the cancellation/renewal notice. Nikita will also get a final, six-episode season. And now I have “For Now” from Avenue Q stuck in my head.
