"Happy Endings": Hit

This ABC comedy centers on six friends in their 20s and 30s harkens back to that one long-running NBC show about, well, six friends in their 20s and 30s. Set in Chicago, the first episode also sees Elisha Cuthbert as a runaway bride (Rachel Green much?), but instead of just following how she puts her life back together after her failed wedding, the series also follows the former groom (Zachary Knighton) and the couple's inseparably bonded friends who have to choose sides post-breakup. There's dating, cheating, hipsters, a food trucks, a guy who roller blades, a charming-yet-sloppy gay pal (Adam Pally), looney BFF (Casey Wilson), Type A sister (Eliza Coupe) and her hilariously silly husband (Damon Wayans Jr.). The snappy one-liners and on-point pop (and vintage pop) culture references bring the laughs and the ratings and have given the show a 16-episode second season order from the network.
