The former series will bow Feb. 9 and stars Matthew Perry as a self-absorbed manager of a San Diego sports arena. It also stars Allison Janney (The West Wing) and Andrea Anders (Better Off Ted). Happy Endings joins the schedule on April 13 and stars Elisha Cuthbert (24) as a gal who breaks up with her fiancee (Zach Knighton of FlashForward) on their wedding day.
