    I’ll say it again…no disrespect to ‘Friends’…but Happy Endings puts the old Central Perk gang to shame in the belly-laughs dept.  Hey, I like the first 3 ABC comedies on Wednesday, just like everyone, but people TRULY do not know the comedy gem they are missing by not watching Happy Endings. 

    Amazes me that the funniest shows (Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Happy Endings) just seem to go right over people’s heads.  What, are they just too dim-witted to process ACTUAL HILARIOUS MATERIAL without a fake laugh-track?  I’m beginning to think that’s the case.  2.5 Men & Big Bang “tell” the audience when it’s okay to laugh.  Meanwhile, they’re missing out on the funniest shows on television.
