From LA Examiner: 'Happy Endings' Season Two Spoilers; Austin Basis Guests on 'Necessary Roughness'; 'Parks and Rec' Ron Swanson Preview...


"Happy Endings' Casey Wilson talks Megan Mullally, choreography & Penny's dad"


In the first season of Happy Endings, Penny (Casey Wilson) takes a "jazz kwon-do" class after her self-defense workout gets too intense. By the end of the episode she has all of her friends in leotards and leg-warmers trying out a brand new routine. Fans of the ABC comedy series who were in attendance at the screening and panel at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles last night were treated to the little trivia nugget that esteemed feature film director Ann Fletcher actually came in to choreograph the number. It seemed she had a few days in between projects and wanted to work.

"Rules of Engagement commits to Wendi McLendon-Covey in season six"

What happens when a crazy cat lady gets married? Well, most of her friends probably pinch themselves to make sure they’re not still asleep, right? We guess we shall see. Because in the season premiere of Rules of Engagement, that is exactly what happens for Liz (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and Russell (David Spade). Record scratch; wait, what? The man-child took some baby-steps toward adulthood last season, mostly because he had to when he was cut off from mommy, but this is a big leap! ... [MORE]
