In television’s seemingly endless attempt to duplicate the success of “Friends,” here’s another comedy about “mid-30-somethings who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives” when they move into a town house in Queens, N.Y. The “friends” are played by Becki Newton, Zachary Knighton, Nate Torrence and Meera Rohit Kumbhani. I’ll just say it: If this show tanks, get Knighton and the gang back together and bring back “Happy Endings” (nope, I’m still not over it). 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, on Fox.

For those of us who still miss “Happy Endings,” here is a new comedy that might fill the void. It features that show’s writer/producer (David Caspe) and star (Casey Wilson), and concerns a couple (Wilson and Ken Marino) trying to commit to each other. Series premiere, 9:01 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 14, on NBC.
Scott Weinger and Candace Cameron Bure (“Full House”) play visitors to the neighborhood in the season finale of this infectious comedy about aliens who live next door. It’s pretty silly stuff (the aliens take the names of sports figures), but the more-than-capable cast (Jami Gertz, Lenny Venito, Simon Templeman) can make the most ridiculous plots believable. Let’s hope ABC gives this well-written comedy a renewal for another season. No, I’m still not over the too-soon cancellation of “Happy Endings.” 8:31 p.m. Friday, April 11, on ABC.
ABC hasn’t treated the six fast-talking friends of this Chicago-set comedy very welI. They started off on Tuesdays, disappeared for weeks, reappeared on Sundays and then settled in on Fridays. Listen up, network programmers: Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr. and Casey Wilson are a simply a-mah-zing ensemble and deserve much better than this. Renew! Renew! Renew! (Here’s hoping it’s a) season finale at 8 p.m. Friday on ABC
Those fast-talking (and very funny) 30-something Chicago friends are back for a third season. Tonight’s premiere features Penny (Casey Wilson) in a body cast, Dave and Alex (Zachary Knighton and Elisha Cuthbert) getting back together and a ventriloquist dummy named Sin-Brad. It’s simply a-mah-zing.
It was an “A-mah-zing” second season. Hurry back guys!
