    Yes! He was the only positive in Paranormal Activity! So glad he’s going to be on a show I’ll be watching!

    Ummmmm, isn’t this show already on the air, over at some cable channel, with Kristen Johnson from 3rd Rock and the guy that played Newman from Seinfeld??? I haven’t watched it, but I expect more from HIMYM creator then ripping off some second rate cable channel.

    Sorry, just don’t see this having the same success as HIMYM. Its an interesting idea, but likely to come off very myssoginistic(sorry for spelling. And it does sound a little like The Exes with Kristen Johnston. At least she’s a good comedic actress. Can this guy do Comedy?

      The popularity of Two and a Half should let you know most men don’t care about it being sexist or not lol.

    Check out his sketch comedy group that he writes for and is nationally and internationally known. You tube Harvard Sailing Team. He is hilarious, so don’t worry because comedy is his thing!!

    The Exes combined with Happy Endings and maybe a little HIMYM on the side? Would check it out but not impressed by the premise

    Chris just happens to be my niece’s husband and he is a takented actor and comedian. I enjoy everything he has done so far and hope he gets to enjoy this new experience and the ones to come.
