The comedic equivalent of Sophie's Choice hits TV fans Tuesday, October 23 at 9pm. With the premieres of Happy Endings
and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23
on ABC, the funniest hour of TV is about to get even funnier.
Three of the funniest shows are competing at the same time, and fans will have to decide which one to watch. At 9pm, ABC premieres the third season of Happy Endings
, FOX has the second season of New Girl
and NBC has freshman comedy Go On
An equally challenging battle will come at 9:30pm when the premiere of Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23
goes up against The New Normal
(and, eventually, The Mindy Project
on FOX, though that show is postponed tonight for The X Factor
Luckily, with DVRs, On Demand and Hulu, it's possible to watch all of these comedies (which you should absolutely do), but it will be interesting to see which one viewers choose to watch immediately. Of course the sad part is that the ratings for NCIS: Los Angeles
will probably equal all three 9pm comedies combined.
The season 3 premiere of Happy Endings
offers everything fans love about the show, from nonstop pop culture references (Frasier
, The Wire
, Rizzoli and Isles
, just to name a few) and highly dysfunctional relationships, whether it's Dave and Alex's attempt at casually dating again or Brad and Jane's wonderfully absurd marriage (now involving Brad's ventriloquist's dummy, SinBrad).Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23
continues with its trademark harsh cruelty as a potential Dawson's Creek
reunion looms and Mark-Paul Gosselaar makes a cameo.
So what comedy will you be watching first Tuesday nights?(Image courtesy of ABC, FOX and NBC)
