MIdseason Preview: Mr. Sunshine

Here's the official plot synopsis from ABC:
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. Working alongside him is his boss and arena owner, Crystal—attractive, powerful and highly erratic; Alice—the cute, tomboyish marketing director and Ben's friend with benefits; Alonzo—a former basketball player, handsome and unbelievably happy; Ben's assistant, Heather—pretty, sweet, but terrifying because she once lit a boyfriend on fire; Crystal's son, Roman—sweet-faced, clueless and Ben's newest employee; and a hapless operations crew whom Ben refers to collectively as the "Steves."
I'm hoping that this show will end up better than Matthew Perry's last show, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. I'm also glad to see Allison Janney (The West Wing) and James Lesure (Las Vegas) back on TV!

Mr. Sunshine premieres on ABC Wednesday, February 9 at 9:30pm, after Modern Family. It's bumping Cougar Town off the schedule, but it will be back on April 13.
