Premieres Tonight: Mr. SunshineTV
It's a happy, happy day, because Matthew Perry and Allison Janney are both back on my TV! Mr. Sunshine premieres on ABC tonight, with Perry as sports arena manager Ben Donovan, a self-centered playboy who decides to make some changes when he turns forty. Honestly, the premise doesn't sound all that mind-blowing, but Matthew Perry and Allison Janney. I'll take my Sorkin alums wherever I can get them, and it can't possibly be as bad as Past Life. A few more Sorkin connections: Studio 60's Nate Torrence is also a regular, and Tommy Schlamme is an executive producer and directed tonight's pilot, which I hope means we'll start the episode following Perry as he walks quickly through the arena's offices and end with a swirling shot rising upward from the arena itself. And can a Christine Lahti cameo be far away? I certainly hope not.
