'Go On' stages 'Friends' reunion that couldn't BE more amazing

The Bings are reuniting on screen for an upcoming episode of NBC’s Go On.

Matthew Perry’s freshman comedy has booked his former onscreen wife Courteney Cox for an upcoming guest spot, EW has confirmed. The Cougar Town star will play a woman who Anne (Julie White), one of the members of the grief support group, tries to set up with Ryan (Perry).

This is the first time since Friends that Perry and Cox will share the small screen — but definitely not the first time members of the Friends cast have appeared together since the show ended in 2004.

The episode is set to air in April, according to THR, who first reported the casting.

NBC picks up full seasons of 'Revolution,' 'The New Normal' and 'Go On'

NBC has ordered full seasons of the new drama Revolution and the freshman comedies Go On and The New Normal.

After three telecasts, Revolution is averaging a 3.6/9 share in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers, while Go On is earning a 3.2/9 and 8.6 million viewers, and Normal a 2.2/6 and 6.0 million.

“We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on Revolution, not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke in a statement. “Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn’t ring, and the pace of life slows down — if only for one hour a week!

“We’re also very proud of our new comedy block of Go On and The New Normal. In partnering with Matthew Perry for Go On, creator Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion. And Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler have created a truly unique family in The New Normal that is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in. These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup!”

'Go On' sneak peek: Matthew Perry on ice! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

NHL star Jeremy Roenick is no match for Matthew Perry in next week’s episode of Go On.

Something amiss about that statement? You bet. But not if you ask Ryan King (Perry).

In next week’s episode of this solid performing comedySteven (John Cho) arranges a spirit-lifting game of hockey for “severely delusional beast” Ryan and enlists Roenick’s help in keeping the scheme a secret from the mourning radio host. Roenick doesn’t think the fix will go unnoticed, but as Steven notes, “It’s part of the wonder that is Ryan. He’s not looking for clues that he’s not awesome.” Watch an exclusive clip below.

Ratings: 'Go On' stays strong, 'New Normal' slips

new-normal-ratings.jpg

NBC’s freshman sitcoms Go On and The New Normal fired second round into their regular time periods Tuesday night. One title remained quite strong in the ratings, while the other slipped slightly.

First, the really good news for NBC: The Voice is continuing its upward trend, rising 13 percent this week compared to last Tuesday’s performance. The one-hour Voice had 13.3 million viewers and a 4.5 rating among adults 18-49. After last week’s softer-than-hoped-for return of the music competition series, NBC has to be pretty thrilled that both Monday and Tuesday editions posted gains, gathering strength before next week’s deluge of premieres.

Now what would be nice to see here is NBC’s comedies rise too — since they’re getting a stronger lead-in from The Voice this week. That’s a lot to ask for in new scripted shows, however, which tend to settle in the ratings for their first few episodes (at the very least).

Go On (9.3 million, 3.3) was down merely a tenth of a point in the show’s second week in this time period, which is still strong. New Normal (6.2 million, 2.2), though, already performing much softer than Go On, fell 12 percent from last week. The difference between the rating of The Voice and Go On isn’t as worrisome as the gap between Go On and New Normal, since the comedies are supposed to make good audience flow partners for each other. Both shows are on their third episodes (counting their preview airings). READ FULL STORY

Matthew Perry's 'Go On' draws big post-Olympics audience

go-on-matthew-perry

UPDATED: Matthew Perry’s return to NBC was seen by a large post-Olympics audience Wednesday night.

A preview of the actor’s new therapy sitcom Go On was viewed by 16.1 million viewers and delivered a 5.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. Go On was down at about 46 percent from the last half hour of its Olympics lead-in, but that’s to be expected. The comedy held about 84 percent of its rating from its first half to its second, which is good considering it aired at 11:06 p.m. and had a ginormous lead-in.

The important point for NBC with these post-Games sitcom previews (Animal Practice will air after the Closing Ceremony) is to drive viewers to sample new fall shows. There is no way Perry’s show would have approached such heights in a regular September premiere, so even with a drop-off from the Games, last night’s preview ratings is all gravy for Perry and NBC.

The bigger question is: Did viewers like the show enough to return to Go On next month?
