  • Eliza Coupe talks about Happy Endings and the ratings struggles: “It’s a running joke on set when we film something we all think is incredible that someone goes, ‘Oh man, that was so good — it’s too bad no one will ever see it.’ It’s the same as every year, we just never know. The network and the studio love the show, and they have been very good to us. They have given us a chance and kept us around for three seasons. Do we wish there was more publicity? Yeah. But it’s undeniable we’re making a great show. I just wish we had more of a push, and I really hope we get a fourth season — but that’s not up to me.”

It entered the chart on June 10, 1989 and peaked at #2 (where it spent 3 weeks) on August 5th. See if you can name all of the 80′s celebrity cameos in the video. I think I got them all.
