ABC has added two more comedies to their Wednesday night lineup. Matthew Perry’s new comedy Mr. Sunshine and Elisha Cuthbert’s sitcom Happy Endings have been added to the schedule.
Sunshine will get the network’s best comedy slot, taking over for Cougar Town with a Modern Family lead-in on Wednesdays for nine weeks starting Feb. 9. Cougar will return April 13 and air through the rest of the season.
Once new drama Off the Map has its last airing on April 6, Happy Endings and a “fan favorite” episode of Modern Family will run in the 10 p.m hour — that’s right, the network will have a three-hour comedy block on Wednesdays, just like NBC on Thursdays.
I’ve been looking forward to Perry’s comedy. He was great on Friends, The West Wing, and Studio 60. It will be nice to see him in another show. As for Cuthbert’s sitcom, I’ve not heard anything about it, but if she’s in it I’ll give it a shot. Hat tip The Live Feed.
