Remote Possibilities: A 'Happy Endings' ending?

A few things to watch (or feed your DVR).

Remote Possibilities: A 'Happy Endings' ending?

Fans of "Happy Endings" may only have two last chances -- at 8 and 8:30 p.m. Friday on  6 ABC --  to see the series, a cult fave whose cult probably isn't large enough to keep it going. (Though nothing is official.)

Sorry to bring you down.

For the rest of you who watch TV on Fridays, there's still plenty to see, with new episodes of just about everything on the major networks (and the original "Iron Man" on FX, beginning at 7).

You may also want to check out:

"Broadway or Bust" (10 p.m., WHYY 12). This PBS three-parter, which is being rerun starting Friday, follows kids preparing for the National High School Musical Theater Awards in New York. What I didn't realize the first time it was on: One of the coaches is Philadelphia's own Leslie Odom Jr. (who can also be seen at 8 p.m. Saturdays in NBC's "Smash").

You can read an earlier interview I did with Odom here.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
