Will These ‘Happy Endings’ And ‘Better Off Ted’ Stars Fare Better On USA Network?

Eliza Coupe and Jay Harrington starred on two of our favorite unjustly cancelled shows, season nine of Scrubs and the much-beloved American remake of Coupling, so their new show for USA Network, the Michaela Watkins-created Benched, has our full support. (I’ve also heard good things about Happy Endings and Better Off Ted.)

According to Deadline, Benched is a single-camera “courtroom comedy that focuses on Nina (Coupe), a dedicated, career-driven corporate attorney who has a very public nervous breakdown after getting passed up for an expected promotion, and finds herself working as a public defender. Harrington stars as Nina’s new colleague, Phil, a tall, dark, and handsome, if not a little scruffy, public defender and avid gambler.” That sounds…OK, I guess?

The premise isn’t what’s going to make us watch, anyway; it’s remembering…

Can VH1 pick up Better Off Ted reruns, too?
