She's hilarious compared to the usual Elisha Cubert performances.

But she's pretty weak on the show. Her sub-plot last episode was only humorous due to Max's reactions

I think Elisha Cuthbert is actually the show's biggest surprise. I've never thought much of her prior to this show (probably not helped by years of watching her play the irritating Kim Bauer). But she's actually quite funny on this show, and the Alex character has nicely transitioned from "straight woman" in the first season to just as wacky as the rest of them.

I agree, this season the writing for her character has been much, much better and given her a lot more to do.

Cuthbert has had some better material this season and has delivered with it, but it hasn't been enough to make much of an impression as of now, IMO.

The midseason ABC schedule is out and no sign of Happy Endings getting pulled. Good for Endings, bad for Cougar Town (which has no return date and has had its episode order cut from 22 to 15).

This is my favorite show on TV right now. I've seen every episode at least five times and it never gets old. I can't go a week without it :P

This week's episode is called "The Shrink, the Dare, Her Date and Her Brother." I'm intrigued.

I don't know. I kind of like the idea. It's not like it would last, so a romance with them going on for a while would be fine.

Great episode tonight though. Great to have this show back again.

So funny last night. Loved Brad and Alex bonding over romcoms, as well as the fact the show gave them a subplot in the first place (I always loved the very rare occasions on Friends when Chandler and Rachel had storylines together, and this felt sort of similar).

Jane and Max. The outfits...so ridiculous. "Come back here, you...gay!"

I don't even mind the show planting the seeds of a possible Dave/Penny hookup even if it came out of left field a little bit.

The cake sub-plot is one of my favorite Friends subplots ever

Catching up on Season 2.

You know, I really don't get awards shows sometimes. Okay, the Emmys had to judge the show based on the uneven first season. Golden Globes? No excuses. And the Emmys will surely ignore the show again next year.

Same goes for the ratings. I don't get how this isn't catching on at all. It's not limited in audience potential like Community, Parks & Rec or Arrested Development. It's still, basically, Friends Evolved.

I wouldn't say it's not catching on at all. The ratings are, like, more than double what they were in its first season, so a huge amount of people discovered the show in season 2. It has gone from pulling demos no higher than 1.5 or so to over 3.

It's just slammed as getting poor ratings by the so-called "retentionistas" because it can't hold on to Modern Family's audience. Taken alone, the ratings are quite good.

Also, I'm sure ABC is happy that both Happy Endings and Revenge are getting a lot of media buzz and coverage this season, even if neither of them are huge hits by definition.

Yeah, the retention bothers me though. It was nice that week when everything else was in reruns and both Happy Endings and Revenge did quite well. I think even Modern Family was a repeat.

Yeah, "Happy Endings" had a series high in the ratings without the "Modern Family" lead-in that week.

Retentionistas are the laughingstocks of the TV ratings world. ABC will happily renew Happy Endings with a 3.x rating.
