This season hasn't been the best for new comedies, but Go On stands out as one that is actually funny and enjoyable. Most of this is due to Matthew Perry, who's universally beloved by audiences because... well, he was Chandler. Now he's bringing all of that comedy to Ryan King, a widowed sports radio host forced to attend group therapy with some equally entertaining weirdos. In a recent media call he discussed what's ahead for Go On and reminisced a little about the classic Friends. Here are some of the highlights.
Don't worry, there's plenty of Louie to go around.
Keri Russell is fighting her way out of obscurity and we couldn't be happier.
While Matt LeBlanc has Episodes, Lisa Kudrow has Web Therapy, Jennifer Aniston has all of the tabloids, Courteney Cox has Cougar Town and David Schwimmer has settled in behind the camera and is doing voiceover work, Matthew Perry hasn't had all that much luck finding a steady TV gig since Friends ended. He had the short-lived Mr. Sunshine and the talky nonsense that was Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. And while this new venture, Go On, does have its moments, it's unlikely that it will be the long-running hit he's hoping for. Much as Chandler was arguably one of the best characters on Friends, Perry is increasingly in danger of becoming a showkiller.
Finally, something the whole world can agree on: dead bodies and crime scenes.
Two hours of Glee??? Zooey, why hast thou forsaken us!
I can't tell if this is tasteful or tasteless. Either way, I guess E! is going to hit the ratings jackpot.
