If you are a Friends fan, then you must be very happy, after two years now of Courteney Cox success with Cougar town, this season marked start of the new Matt LeBlanc show in Showtime, and now Matthew Perry comes with Mr Sunshine on ABC in the same timeslot as former Monica.
Matthew Perry stars as Ben Donovan, the self-involved manager of a second-rate San Diego sports arena who begins to re-evaluate his life on his 40th birthday.
On what would have been just a typical day at work, trying to get rid of a hockey rink that won’t melt so the circus can go on that night, looking for an elephant lost in the building and arranging an impromptu press conference to repair one of his boss’s PR nightmares — Alice ends her casual relationship with Ben to commit to another man. This happens on Ben’s 40th birthday, just as he’s realizing he doesn’t want to be alone.
