Matthew Perry appeared at a Kings game over the weekend and made the mistake of talking to a sportscaster instead of merely sitting back and enjoying the sport. While chatting with the onetime Friends star, Fox reporter Dan Moriarty said, “Big news today! Congratulations are in order!”
The problem was that the “big news” was Matthew’s current sitcom, Go On, getting the axe. “Oh, thank you! You’re talking about my show getting cancelled?” Matthew responded rather good-naturedly, given the response, to which Dan Moriarty just nodded cluelessly. (He never really did pick up on the awkwardness of the moment.) “So it’s a double-edged sword congratulations?” the reporter asked finally, with Matthew nodding and looking like he wanted to strangle the guy.
But Matthew isn’t alone in getting such “double-edged sword congrats.” Plenty of other shows also got the boot to make way for networks’ newer offerings heading to the small screen this fall. See which shows we’ll say goodbye to after the jump.
