I watched it this past season, but I could never fully get into it. Somehow, sit-coms now mostly focus on horrible people, doing horrible things and experiencing no growth. Case in point, the episode where they make-over Max was Simpson-esque in it's ability to reset back to the way things are. Yes, I get the humor came from Max being Max, but I like to see some growth.
Really? I could not possibly care less about a sit-com character's "growth".

Yeah, Happy Endings wasn't the best but it did make me laugh. The show was unique in one respect; the show had the best interracial (black/white) couple in sit-com history. Both the husband and wife looked good, like they actually could be together in real life, had chemistry, AND were both funny.
