Just as we were literally getting ready to write an article calling NBC's Best Friends Forever "the funniest show you're not watching," it was announced by TV Guide that the network has pulled the remaining episodes from its lineup.
Executive producer and one of the show's stars, Lennon Parham, tweeted yesterday, "BFF Fans:
Wanted to let you know that our show is being taken off the air until
the summer. Hoping to post ep 5 & 6 online asap... Jessica St. Clair and I CANNOT thank you enough for the love and support of our little show. You guys are truly the best."
The show focused on Jessica (played by co-Executive producer, Jessica St. Clair), who moves from California to Brooklyn to live with her best friend after finding out her husband is leaving her. Also sharing the apartment with the two is Lennon's boyfriend, who occasionally butts heads with Jessica.
Maybe if NBC wasn't worried about making The Office last 18 seasons and actually spent time and money to promote its new shows, this would have had a chance. But instead, the network continues to be the channel that sitcoms come to die upon arrival, leaving all new successful comedies to ABC... which is fine (we love Modern Family, The B in Apartment 23, and Happy Endings), but it'd be nice to want to DVR another channel once in a while.
To check out the first (and only) four episodes of the series, be sure to check out Hulu. You won't be disappointed... unless it's at the fact that there's no more to be seen.
