TV Land has a new show to keep things warm after Hot In Cleveland, The Exes! Basic premise: Three divorced guys with very different personalities shack up in the apartment across the hall from their divorce attorney. The comedy is pretty basic – what joke you see is what joke you get.
But there is one really good reason you should check out this show — actually make that five. The series’ cast are all veteran sitcom actors from shows you love.┬á There is Scrubs‘ Donald Faison as a charismatic ladies’ man; Wayne Knight from Seinfeld fame whose onscreen ego spends way too much time on the Internet; David Alan Basche (The Starter Wife, Lipstick Jungle), the overly-sensitive newly single guy; and 3rd Rock from the Sun‘s Kristen Johnston as the maternal lawyer who needs her own man (TV DivaGal is betting she and David’s character wind up together — but not before she hooks up with Donald’s!). And yes, props to 4’11 star Kelly Stables (Two and a Half Men) who’s rocking it for all the petite gals. (We’ll be bringing you the deets on her petite wardrobe soon!) So while the jokes may be simple, these guys and gals are pros at landing them on their mark.
Turn off the breakup music, put down the pint of ice-cream and watch The Exes instead. Your funny bone — and waistline — will thank you.
The Exes series premiere airs Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 10:30 p.m. on TV Land.
