Of all the recently cancelled shows, this one deserves a save.

Now, if some thoughtful cable network would only bring back Better Off Ted. That show was all kinds of comedy nerdvana.

Would it be too much to hope that they do a crossover with Psych?

I know nothing about this show.  After a quick wikipedia consult, I'm glad it apparently got canned.

While the initial "complications following Alex and Dave's breakup" premise was the focal point in the earlier episodes, this premise has mostly been abandoned as the series went on, as the focus became more about the group dynamic of six best friends, in a similar vein of "friends hanging out" ensemble comedies like Friends

If USA network wants a winning show, they'll give Missy Peregrym's rack a starring role in something new, with Dichen Lachmann as the cynical best friend.

I love this thing where networks pick up other networks cancelled shows.

Did it happen before Diff'rent Strokes? That's the first one I can remember.

That's kind of a superficial description. It resembles Friends only inasmuch as it mocks the tropes that show and others of its ilk are built on.

You're right, I'd forgotten. ABC to NBC.

On paper, Happy Endings sounds a lot like Friends. In practice, they couldn't be more different. I despise Friends and will readily call Happy Endings one of the funniest shows on television. I'd put it behind Archer and... that may be it.

Seconded, It sounds dumb, but in practice it works. I enjoy the delivery of the dialogue, with characters stepping on each others lines, sometimes they are able to layer in some great jokes (although not as racy or clever as Arrested Development).

So they will rework it so it's a buddy cop comedy about two 30-something women trying to make it in a man's world while having sexy adventures with the one boyfriend that got away?

I am going to assume that subby accidentally hit "submit" before realizing he mistakenly forgot to use the "Hero" tag.
