Penny's pain plays for laughs in 'Happy Endings' premiere

ABC's hilarious sitcom "Happy Endings" returns for its third season Tuesday with Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) being none too casual about their casual dating, while Jane (Eliza Coupe) encourages her unemployed hubby, Brad (Daman Wayans Jr.), to rekindle his interest in ventriloquism with a dummy named Sinbrad.

But the funniest scenes in "Cazsh Dummy Spillionaires" belong to Penny (Casey Wilson), who is stuck in a body cast and relying on Max (Adam Pally) to be her nurse. That doesn't go so well when he meets her hot physical therapist.

"I can't believe you've been holding me hostage in my own body cast," she says. "You're 'Misery'-ing me!"

What's miserable for Penny is awesome for viewers. Wilson is truly fearless, which is why I love her. "Happy Endings" airs at 8 p.m. CT on ABC.

ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" follows "Happy Endings" with its second season premiere at 8:30 p.m. CT.

In "A Reunion," James Van Der Beek tries to reunite the "Dawson's Creek" gang after June (Dreama Walker) talks him into it. Chloe (Krysten Ritter) doesn't think it's such a good idea. Busy Philipps and a couple of famous former child (and current adult) stars make cameos.

It's a fun episode; Van Der Beek's good-sported spoofing of his past is still the best thing about the show.
