It might not be Happy Endings, but it's close. Fans of that canceled sitcom can take solace in creator David Caspe's follow-up, the freshman NBC comedy Marry Me. Caspe's real-life wife (and Happy Endings alum) Casey Wilson is back, and the jokes come just as rapid-fire. But where Happy Endings had an ensemble cast, this time there's a couple at the heart of the comedy: Wilson and Ken Marino play Annie and Jake, a couple experiencing the bumpy road towards marriage. Caspe filled out our TV Guide Magazine showrunner survey to explain why Marry Me is worth the engagement.

NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt did everything but launch into a chorus of "I've Gotta Crow" — a song from Peter Pan, the next live musical on the network's slate (on Dec. 4) — as he bullishly opened the network portion of the TCA summer press tour on Sunday. (One of his buzzier announcements involved naming Christopher Walken as that show's Captain Hook.)
"Six seasons and a movie" almost didn't happen. As June drew to a close, time was running out to save Community, which NBC had canceled in May. Talks to move the comedy to streaming service Hulu were falling apart, the deal options to keep the show's cast intact expired at the end of the month, and much of the crew and key writers had already moved on to new jobs.
