CBS has already revealed that Ashton Kutcher's Two and a Half Men character is heartbroken, and now we know who's to blame. Judy Greer has signed on to join the cast of Men in a recurring role as Kutcher's soon-to-be ex-wife.
Greer will play Bridget, who's in the process of divorcing Internet billionaire Walden Schmidt (Kutcher). She'll be seen in several episodes of the show.
Cheers to Chris Parnell for his endearing guest turn on Mad Love.

The SNL veteran guested on CBS' freshman sitcom as a small-town cop, Dennis Barrett, who pulls over Connie (Judy Greer) for speeding. She initially flirts with him to try and get out of the ticket but is eventually charmed by his winning personality. Parnell and Greer have history — they costarred in ABC's underrated gem Miss Guided and both provide voices on FX's animated spy spoof Archer — and they developed a surprisingly potent chemistry in only a few scenes. Thankfully, we haven't seen the last of Parnell on Mad Love — he'll be back for another episode next month.

Twentieth Century TV has until June 30 to salvage Miss Guided, which didn't make ABC's fall slate, but in case it was not meant to be, Judy Greer has a Plan B in place. The bubbly comedienne has scored the lead in Suburban Shootout, HBO's half-hour pilot directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and based on a British series.A dark comedy, Shootout has Greer playing a woman who "escapes" to the suburbs only to get caught in the middle 'tween rival gangs of homicidal housewives.

Question: Do you think ABC dropped the ball by airing all seven episodes of Miss Guided in the space of a three-week period instead of giving it a chance to thrive? I really think that if this show had been paired on Mondays with Samantha Who?, it could have been a moderate hit for the network. Both Samantha and Miss Guided are quirky and have currents of dark humor flowing through them. Miss Guided is not one of the best shows I have seen lately, but I actually found myself enjoying Judy Greer's overly optimistic yet still snarky commentary on her job. ABC has done a wonderful job lately of creating and promoting its excellent slate of hour-long dramas such as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Brothers and Sisters and Ugly Betty, but when it comes to its 30-minute comedies (Cavemen, Carpoolers, According to Jim), the quality is remarkably lower. I really think Miss Guided had a nice premise and could have been something to build on. It probably would've never have been as ...
Question: I was wondering what your thoughts were on Miss Guided. I've watched all the episodes so far and have found it smart, funny and very enjoyable. I feel like I haven't heard a lot about it in the media, though. Did it pull in good ratings? I'm assuming once Ugly Betty returns, ABC is not planning to keep it on Thursday nights — which is fine by me since that night is already crowded enough with good TV. Does the show have a chance?
Answer: Blink and you’ll miss this one, especially with ABC’s curious strategy of airing it back-to-back on Thursdays for just a few weeks. If my calendar's correct, Miss Guided's season finale is this Thursday . I reviewed it recently with more props to the star, Judy Greer, than to the show, which I found very cute but not particularly special. Still, I’d love to see how it would fare if paired with the still-promising Samantha Who? These are not shows that will turn a network’s fortunes around, but they do bring a smile to the face. And on ABC ...
Chris Parnell in Miss Guided by Mitch Haddad/ABC
Cheers to Chris Parnell for his scene-stealing turn in Miss Guided. As power-drunk vice principal Bruce Terry, the Saturday Night Live alum wrings consistent laughs from the freshman ABC sitcom's uneven scripts: His character's man-crush on soulful substitute teacher Beaux (Ashton Kutcher) was downright hysterical. (Parnell's also brilliant as a juice-sipping poker genius in the just-released big-screen comedy The Grand.) I just hope this new TV gig doesn't mean we've seen the last of Parnell's delirious 30 Rock quack, Dr. Leo Spaceman. For more on Miss Guided, check out the new Cheers & Jeers vodcast.
