Krysten Ritter has a new show arriving on ABC in a few weeks, set to take over for “Happy Endings” after “Modern Family” on Wednesdays at 9:30, beginning April 11th. The sitcom is called “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.” If you’re interested, the pilot episode is available on Hulu. I watched it last night, and while it doesn’t hold a candle to “Happy Endings,” it was actually pretty funny, thanks mostly to James Van Der Beek, who plays himself, complete with all the “Dawson’s Creek” callbacks you could hope for (plus a scene in which he beds a woman pulling an Ali Larter in Varsity Blues. Whip-cream lingerie, y’all. I DO WANT YORE LIFE).
ABC is doing a solid job of promoting the show, but there’s no better promotion than the lead actress in lingerie. As part of Esquire’s Me in My Place photo series, Ritter shows off her apartment. Bonus: She shows it off while wearing her underwear. Hit the slideshow for all the goods, by which I mean her awesome countertops.
