What's On: The Exes
In a sea of pseudo-scripted (and let's face it) not so "real" reality shows is this comedic gem on Tv Land; A cleverly scripted comedy called "The Exes".
Show Synopsis: Three divorced men sharing an apartment across the hall from their female divorce attorney, who is also their landlord. The "never been married" Holly (Kristen Johnston) introduces her newest single client Stuart (Basche) to his new roommates -- ladies' man Phil (Faison) and the sardonic homebody, Haskell (Knight). Things get off to a shaky start for Phil and Haskell when they begin to have reservations about living with clingy Stuart, but Holly is right across the hall to help them steer clear of any catastrophes. After all, it helps her to avoid her own relationship and commitment issues! To top it all off, Holly's hard-partying assistant Eden (Stables), doesn't let her professionalism get in the way of prying into her boss's personal life. Through the episodes, the guys begin to realize that the issues they have with each other are the same ones that they had with their ex-wives.
I had missed season one but thanks to technology I have been able to record the past episodes via my handy DVR. Every single episode I enjoy the witty and smart humor of the talented team of writers.
I have watched and belly laughed my way through season two and I had the fabulous opportunity a few weeks ago to go to the set for a taping as part of the LIVE audience; Yes the laughter is REAL.
I sat front and center with my fabulous friend Sydney and laughed the time away watching the amazing acting chops of the uber talented cast!
Kristen Johnston (Holly), Donald Faison (Phil), Kelly Stables (Eden),Wayne Knight (Haskell), and David Alan Basche (Stuart)
And don't get me started on the brilliant writers and hard working crew. Overall I had an amazing time and I can describe the show in 1 word: HILARIOUS!
The Episode will air tomorrow night called "Sister Act". Check out an exclusive clip on their website
It was an amazing treat to be able to see the legendary Judith Light (as Holly's Mother Marjorie) and Actress Amanda Detmer (as Holly's Sister Jill). Both I had the pleasure of meeting afterward and they are as sweet as they are talented.
If you have never seen the show this is episode is NOT TO BE MISSEED! for all you digital darlings out there is it literally LOL funny! Don't take my word for it, tune in and see for yourself.
Set your DVR's for 10:30pm on TV Land.
