From its start, Happy Endings has always been seen as a second-tier series to ABC's Modern Family and TGIF revival - yet it is still one of the strongest comedies on the network. Sure, it doesn't have the sassy family appeal of some of the network's other shows, but Happy Endings brings a more mature telling of friends living (and growing) together, like How I Met Your Mother.
Thanks to the series not needing a 9-year reveal of the "mother," viewers get to explore a more realistic version of the "current" generation.
What You Need to Know: If you liked Damon Wayans Jr. in Fox's New Girl pilot, Happy Endings has all that and more. And it's reason why he was written out in the second episode (when Happy Endings got renewed).
