This did actually air last year on CityTV in Canada, right?

This episode was one big "We love the Bad News Bears" tribute.

This was an absolute loser of an episode for me. I did not have a single LOL moment. I guess it is very apparent how far this show has matured and found its own since last season.

I somewhat agree with Holydoc - i enjoyed the episode, but you can really see how far the show has come this season.

but i did still find it funny overall, although not on the level of Season 2.

I thought it was fun and had a few gems.

Max: "I will work, at minimum, for the maximum because Max doesn't work for minimum."

Jane: Anyway you're only as good as your weakest link. I'm talking about Yipsy Kay Ay Mother failure over there.

Then Brad calling his bunt.

Yipsy kay ay mother failure is a classic line.

UPDATED: ABC’s comedies in the Sunday 10 PM hour experiment was short lived. The network had scheduled new episodes of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt. 23 from 10-11 PM on Sunday on January 6, 13 and 20. But after two low-rated airings, ABC is taking the comedies, which continue to air on Tuesday, off Sunday. To make room for the extra airings of Happy Endings and Apt. 23 on Sunday, ABC pulled cancelled freshman drama 666 Park Ave, which was to continue in the Sunday 10 PM time slot until it finishes its 13-episode run. The comedies are now gone from Sundays permanently but fans of 666 Park Ave shouldn’t get their hopes up — ABC won’t be bringing the spooky drama back to the hour either. Instead, a Shark Tank rerun will air at 10 PM this coming Sunday, with a decision on future substitutes TBA. ABC has a Hallmark movie scheduled for January 27, will air Modern Family repeats on Feb. 3 and is yet to book February 10 and 17. The Academy Awards air on February 24, followed by the premiere of midseason drama Red Widow, which will take over the Sunday 10 PM slot the following Sunday.

In the second of their two Sunday outings last week, Happy Endings matched a series low in 18-49 with a 1.0/2, while Apt. 23 hit a series low of 0.8/2. The comedies will continue to air originals of the comedies in their Tuesday 9-10 PM slot until ABC phases out its Tuesday comedy block in March. That would leave five unaired episodes of Happy Endings and one of Apt. 23 whose future is unclear.

So apparently noone watched Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B live Sunday nights.

I guess putting comedies at the 10pm hour just doesn't work. Most people DVR their shows that hour and watch it the next day or days later.

I just started watching this show after catching that great Christmas episode. Really enjoying it. Based on my track record it'll soon be cancelled

Ditto. It was not at all funny, though Jane is very very hot. I just watched it off the DVR, didn't know it was from last season and half way though was wondering why Alex was so cold to Dave, Penny couldn't pronounce Xela and why Jane was playing for an auto body shop instead of her car dealership. Not until Alex visited Dave's place did it all click.
