Last week, Judy Greer was on The Big Bang Theory and then this Monday, she was on How I Met Your Mother. Last night, Tom Amandes was on Parenthood, and tonight, he’s in the premiere of The Good Guys. Gaah!

I’m big fans of all these actors — Amandes, in particular, will always have a special place in my heart as Dr. Abbott on Everwood. O’Malley’s been fantastic as Kurt’s flannel-and-sports dad on Glee, but his doofy poet on Parenthood is pretty great, too. And who doesn’t love Judy Greer? She is extremely lovable and great, even though I wish she’d stop getting cast as characters who are just the butt of the joke. And yet this feels like overload. Let me learn to miss you, actors!
