PaleyFest Fall Preview: Report from NBC's Outsourced Party

Outsource

TV Guide Magazine partnered with the Paley Center for Media for its sixth annual PaleyFest Fall Preview Party series, kicking off Sept. 9 with the gang from NBC's new workplace comedy Outsourced (premiering Sept. 23). The cast, headed by newcomer Ben Rappaport as Todd, a Kansas City man whose company transfers him to India, came from taping their Halloween episode. "Todd throws a party and I come as Hugh Hefner, with the velvet jacket, slippers and pipe," reported Rappaport, while Drew Carey Show vet Diedrich Bader, who plays another American import, told us that, earlier in the day, he "leapt out of a closet dressed as Frankenstein and got the [expletive] kicked out of me."

Cougar Town's Ian Gomez: I'm Happy Andy's Not a "Schmucky Neighbor Next Door"

Cougar Town, Ian Gomez

Is Cougar Town the next Friends? Ian Gomez, who plays beleaguered husband Andy on the show, says the similarities don't end with Courteney Cox's involvement.

"And Lisa [Kudrow] came on! [Friends] did very well and I would be very happy if ours is half as successful as that. I just hope I'm not Joey!" Gomez talked to us about his TV wife, played by Christa Miller, his real wife, Nia Vardalos, and his hopes for a Felicity reunion.

Premise: An easygoing Cleveland Everyman seeks simple pleasures in the company of his oddball friends as he trades barbs with his nemesis, a plus-size coworker who applies makeup the way Jackson Pollock applied paint.
