    Well that's it for this season.

    We're really starting to enjoy this show and hopefully they give it a chance for next season.

    This episode was fun and quirky as usual...we get a kick out of watching Roman each week...big goofy man child he is.

    I didn't realize this was the last episode either.

    It was cool to see Lizzy Caplan and Andrea Anders reunited again (they were both on "The Class"). No Heather in this episode? I would have thought she'd have something to do with the new assistant.

    I enjoyed the show. And it got so-so ratings so I'm expecting it to be back.

    Haven't watched this one yet, and I have given 'meh' ratings to previous episodes.. but it really got decent ratings? I'm surprised.

    They sure seem to have been making more short seasons lately. I'm guessing the networks are more skittish.

    This, Harry's Law (12 episodes), and I think a few other shows had half seasons this year. Were they all intended as midseason replacements? I don't know.

    THIS WASN'T THE SEASON FINALE! This was episode 9 of an ordered 13. This show is on hiatus, as ABC seems to have a plethora of comedies to try out. Next week Happy Endings will be in this time slot, then Cougar Town returns the week after.

    Strange....there are a few websites/reviews that posted that it was a Season Finale.

    The show has really grown on me. I hope it gets renewed, no matter if this is the season finale or not.

    If you liked Lizzy Caplan (the new girl) then you should watch Party Down. That was a great comedy series. Both seasons are available for streaming on Netflix. In fact, she's playing essentially the same character - strong woman, enjoys sex without strings.

    I could be wrong, but I thought that ABC said it was the season finale too in it's promos.

    I didn't like the first 2-3 episodes of this show, but I stuck with it, mostly because I like Mathew Perry and the fact that it takes place in a Sports Arena appeals to me. It has gotten better. But I think they need less Roman. That man-boy character really annoys me.

    I was glad to see Lizzy Caplan too. She was my favorite character on The Class, which I thought was a really good show that was just hitting it's stride when it got canceled. it's actually kind of fun to see a lot of the "alumni" from the class in other shows now. Anders in this show and Better Off Ted. Jason Ritter in The Event (I had forgotten he was in The Class) and Jessie Tyler Ferguson on Modern Family. There are probably some others but those are shows I watch.

    Another :up: for Party Down. The first season was great and the second season was pretty good as well. Too bad nobody watches Starz.

    The ratings weren't great, but they were about on par with Cougar Town, and Mr. Sunshine was competing with American Idol and didn't have the benefit of a new Modern Family as a lead in for most of its episodes, so I'd say it held it's own just fine.

    When the remaining four episodes aren't scheduled to air this season, that's a "season finale" in my book.
