"WIN AT ALL COSTAS"
01/08/2013 (09:00PM - 09:30PM) (Tuesday) : BOB COSTAS INVITES RYAN TO BE A PART OF HIS NEW TV SHOW - BOB COSTAS (NBC SPORTS) GUEST STARS - Ryan (Matthew Perry) receives an invitation from Bob Costas, his hero, to take part on his new TV show while Fausta (Tonita Castro) invites everyone in the group to her niece's Quincenierra - everyone except Anne (Julie White). Meanwhile, after completing a major project at work, Mr. K (Brett Gelman) searches to find a new way to contribute and make a difference.
Laura Benanti, Tyler James Williams and Suzy Nakamura also star.
("Friends," "Mr. Sunshine") stars as Ryan King
, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan's alpha-male boss, Steven (John Cho, "Star Trek," "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle"), has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air.
A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for "life change" where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss. On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worst. Ryan's total lack of interest in "the healing process" proves distracting, and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren, played by Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti
("The Playboy Club"). Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn't really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on. Also starring are Tony Award winner Julie White
("Transformers") as Anne, Tyler James William
s ("Everybody Hates Chris") as Owen, Suzy Nakamura
("Dodgeball") as Yolanda, and Brett Gelman as Mr.K ("30 Minutes or Less").
