Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 (ABC)
Stars: Krysten Ritter, Dreama Walker, James Van Der Beek, Liza Lapira, Eric Andre, Ray Ford
Status: Season two premieres October 23 at 9:30 p.m.
Despite boasting one of the most eye-grabbing titles of all time, Apt 23 debuted as a mid-season replacement earlier this year to little fanfare—which is unfortunate because it's funny as hell. James Van Der Beek is having the most fun he's had during his whole career playing a douche-bag version of himself, but the real star is Krysten Ritter, whom you may remember as Jesse's doomed addict girlfriend Jane on Breaking Bad.
Ritter has murdered every role she's done so far, and her performance as Chloe, the titular untrustworthy bitch, is no different. Dreama Walker does well as the straight woman, routinely horrified by Chloe's hilariously amoral, selfish antics, and, along with Van Der Beek, they've quietly created one of TV's funniest trios.
The series also features unique stunt-casting. Instead of going for big names, the show mines funnier appearances from the C-list, with Dean Cain and Kevin Sorbo joining James in playing ridiculous caricatures of themselves, or up-and-comers like Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka. ABC has thrown Apt 23 into the deep end with an embattled Tuesday-night time slot, but paired with the equally hilarious Happy Endings the experiment just may work out.
