ABC hasn’t completely written off its best sitcom, “Happy Endings,” yet, but it doesn’t look good for the show. For the next few weeks, it’s being double-pumped, along with “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23” on both Sunday and Tuesday nights. That’s a classic burn-off strategy, and since doing so will only leave 3 episodes of “Happy Endings” and no episodes of “Apt. 23” after the Oscars on February 24th, they won’t be around in the Spring, which will make it easier for ABC to sh*tcan the series, should any mid-season replacements gain some traction.
But, I’m not going to let it go without a fight. Yes, the show — while still hilarious — has gotten a little full of its own sense of humor this season, but no show outside of “Community” shotguns more pop-culture references into a 22-minute episode that “Happy Endings.” It’s impossible to pick a favorite character — there’s a five-way tie for first, with Dave trailing at number six — but Coupe is my favorite actress from the ensemble, if only because she’s obviously channeling herself. She played the same character on “Scrubs,” and over on Twitter, she has the same personality, too, plus a lot more profanity.
So, to remind you to tune in tonight and help save “Happy Endings,” here are a few hot and hilarious photos of Eliza Coupe.
Balls deep with Dave Knighton.
