As an anniversary gift, for his live-together girlfriend Joan, who met when they entered third grade, Ethan throws a surprise party inviting their entire third-grade class. A Few members of the class agree to come although they have not seen each other in years. Every thing has changed, and new friendships are formed, when the class reunites. The "class clown" still lives at home and rekindles his feelings for his former girlfriend, the now married "beautiful girl next door". The unpopular nerd in school who was on the brink of suicide starts seeing a girl who barely noticed him in school. In addition, a successful female classmates confronts her high school crush and prom date (where she found out he was gay). A whole lot more happens when this class reunites and starts new friendships. Written by GordonGraphic86

Did You Know?


A little over a month after the show debuted, CBS ordered six additional episodes, but they slashed the budget and complained that there were too many characters. As a result, Lucy Punch, who played perpetual outsider Holly Ellenbogen, was quietly fired. The network, however, loved her character's husband and brought him back for a few additional appearances. In a rush to wrap up the primary storylines, the producers decided to work around Holly and wait until the second season to give closure to her character, but the show was abruptly canceled.

User Reviews

Fast becoming one of my favorite 30 minute sit coms
10 January 2007 | by noahperlmanSee all my reviews

"The Class" got started a little slow but the writers are developing their characters into positions they are now using for very funny skits. This comedy was ideally supposed to be the successor to "Friends " but has the feel of something entirely new. The most recent episode where the subject of homosexuality is a major theme continues to keep me on my toes. The cast of the class is exceptionally strong and diverse. The late John Ritter's son is proving that he can do exceptional work in comedy as well as he did in drama ( "Joan of Arcadia" ). I recommend giving " The Class " a look for a few episodes so you can catch on to each characters profile.
