The "Very Funny" cable network burned off the whopping nine-episode season of its sly charmer about Chicago sportswriter PJ (Jordana Spiro) and her pals on Sundays opposite such sky-high-profile cable competition as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Mad Men — whose costar Joel Murray, aka rehabbed alky Freddy Rumsen, guested on Boys as the owner who sold the gang's hangout, Crowley's, to Brando (Reid Scott) in the season finale.

Still, there is plenty going on in this involving episode as Pete and Peggy hire actors to stage a food fight over a meat company's product; and Don admonishes a prudish swimsuit manufacturer that his company can be "comfortable and dead, or risky and possibly rich." And on the ex-homefront, Don issues Betty an unsettling ultimatum. — Ray Stackhouse

What was My Boys star Jamie Kaler's first TV role? A guy "way too old to be hitting it" on Saved by the Bell: The New Class. Kaler and co-star Michael Bunin stopped by TVGuide.com during their current comedy tour to tell us more about their humble beginnings — which may have included porn — and how a table read during the first season led to a romance in Season 4, which premieres Sunday at 10/9c on TBS.
Watch the video here.
Cheers to My Boys for weathering the loss of one of their own.
TBS' endearing-underdog sitcom has always coasted on the chemistry of its ensemble, so the news that the reliably hilarious Jim Gaffigan wouldn't return for Season 4 as Jordana Spiro's droll brother gave fans cause for concern...
