Are you having fun yet? Because you will be when Party Down debuts on Hulu on Friday, August 29.
One of the great tragedies of the binge-watching era was when Starz took Rob Thomas’ show about cater waiters/struggling showbiz types off of Netflix, but fans (and those who are about to become fans) can rest easy: Hulu announced today that all episodes are coming to Hulu Plus.

If you’re not a convert yet, here are some reasons to watch: the coupling of a pre-Parks and Recreation Adam Scott and a pre-Masters of Sex Lizzy Caplan, plenty of guest spots from Veronica Mars cast members (Mars staples Ryan Hansen and Ken Marino are regulars), insider-y Hollywood humor, and the line about a leg “made footless by pot.“
UPDATE: This post has been updated to reflect that Party Down will become available August 29. EW regrets the error.
Party time! The cast of Party Down makes a special appearance on tonight’s Childrens Hospital (Adult Swim, 12 a.m. ET).

“I couldn’t believe all the Party Down actors showed up!” Marino marvels to EW over the phone. “I love the guy who plays Ron. He came in. He was kind of a d—, actually, in real life.” READ FULL STORY

TV, I wish I knew how to quit you.
Actually…no I don’t. Without you, we’d all be bored, heartless, apathetic loners. Let’s never part. I’ll make you a deal: You stay highly entertaining, I’ll spoil, and we will all promise to consume our television programming greedily. And judging by what’s coming up on Castle, Outsourced, How I Met Your Mother, Gossip Girl and a ton of other shows, you’re going to be keeping up your end of the bargain.
