    I forgot how much I liked Scott Foley until he showed up in Scandal. Now ill definitely be watching The Goodwin Games.

    • Shar says:

      .. and he has done soooo many different things than just Felicity, so please update his bio.

    • Mechelle says:

      Is Scott Foley leaving “Scandal?” I’m curious. I will be sure to check out Goodwin Games!

      • Mel says:

        Scott’s probably “a bad guy” so I’d think he only has a limited time on Scandal. On a completely superficial level – he is so freakin’ hot! He has only improved since Felicity (which I am currently watching On Demand, such a sweet and tender show, however, all those gigantic shoulders make me laugh!

      • JBJ says:

        Goodwin Games was filmed and shelved long before Foley joined Scandal, so I’m pretty sure it’s all but dead in the water. That said, his appearance on Scandal was planned to be just an arc, so should Goodwin Games get renewed that’s his primary obligation; and should it not be renewed and Shondra James loves him enough, they’ll find a way to redeem his character enough to keep him around (I mean this is the woman who kept Jeffrey Dean Morgan around long after his character’s literal expiration date).

    TJ Miller looks horrible here. What hath photoshop wrought?

  3. Josh says:

    Ready…set…CANCEL

    • Sg. Grant says:

      Maybe not. TJ Miller is hilarious. Becki Newton is hot. Scott Foley is a great actor.

      This should would have already been renewed if had started airing last fall.

  4. Martin says:

    Really wish they never recast Jake Lacy with TJ Miller, would’ve been so much better.

  5. erin says:

    Will watch solely for T.J.

  6. joaopedromillan says:

    i was really looking forward to this show in september. it’s too bad it’s only coming now and will probably be canceled.

  7. Eric says:

    I can’t wait to see this.

  8. Cherry says:

    I wish FOX put more faith in this show. The cast is great, Becki Newton is hilarious. They just needed to give it hype, i love the premise and I hope you Americans tune in!

  9. Lauren says:

    I hope Fox gives this show a real chance but it doesn’t feel likely with a May premiere. But hey, Seinfeld didn’t start until June so you never know.

  10. E$ says:

    if i remember right, it stopped production after 7 episodes. so there isn’t too much chance of a renewal right? this is essentially just a burn-off/D.O.A situation?

  11. Mechelle says:

    Is Scott Foley leaving Scandal for good? I’m curious. I will be sure to check out Goodwin Games! Scott is a wonderful actor!

  12. happyendings? says:

    didnt really know where to ask it, nowhere seemed like the right article so i’ll ask it here…off topi: does anyone know why the 2 new happy endings were replaced by 1 repeat happy endings and 1 repeat of last man standing (or whatev the tim allen one is) and if we’ll ever see them?? bad enough what abc’s done to the show with the moving around on the schedule but i hadnt heard anything on them pulling eps for news coverage so im just wondering whats the deal?

    • Jon says:

      On the east coast most programming was cancelled by news coverage of the arrest of the Boston Bomber. So, if you’re on the west coast they probably ran reruns.

  13. Polly says:

    yeah, enjoy the few episodes they’ve made. there won’t be more.

    • Debbie Jones says:

      Yep. That’s what I thought too. Only the eps in the can were being aired this summer. I really really hope this means Scott Foley will be returning to Scandal for S3. I am madly in love with his character Jake.

  14. TheDude says:

    This is going to be one of those under appreciated, short lived yet ridiculously awesome, one season and then canceled sitcoms that have been popping up towards the end of the TV season the past few years. Right up there with Bent, Friends With Benefits, Mr Sunshine, and, I guess, while it wasn’t a sitcom…I’d group The Good Guys in there too.

  15. Omar says:

    Becki Newton is one of my favorites comedy actors, I hope the show works!

  16. im giving it a try just for Becki she needs a break from cancel shows, Love Bites was supports to be her big hit after Ugly Betty and it flop because it was pushed back then again this was supports to be her big hit and once again it got pushed back. I just hope she gets a real hit soon, I really can see her in a lipstick jungle type of show but with some comedy mix into it.

  17. Babygate says:

    I have been looking forward to this since last year when I heard Becki was attached to the project. But the truth is, the concept is so very weak, I have no illusions that it will last. I saw the teaser and it was pretty bad. But, here’s hoping. She was super funny in Ugly Betty and deserves another shot at a good show.

  18. Jon says:

    Becki Newton grates on my nerves, ever since Ugly Betty. I’ll watch if nothing else is on.

    • Willie Slater says:

      Becki Newton is FLAWLESS and FABULOUS and the way she’s been crapped on – first by the UB cancellation, then with Love Bites and now this – makes me furious. I’d rather see her read IKEA assembly instructions than watch so many others (I’m looking at you, Whitney Cummings) do their so-called “comedy.”

  19. Kyle says:

    Becki Newton deserves a break after everything she did on Ugly Betty. Her character COULD have easily been a cliched dumb-blonde, but she played it so well that Amanda seemed fresh and ended up being a highlight! I really want her to get something good, but I can’t see this lasting sadly for her. :(

  20. dee123 says:

    Um.. Scream 3? He’s played bad for a while.

  21. Jake says:

    The comedian on the pilot Carmichael is Hilarious!
