The Exes

The fourth season of TV Land's original sitcom The Exes will now premiere Wednesday, November 5 at 10:30pm ET/PT and not August 13 as initially announced. Last season, Phil (Donald Faison) and Eden (Kelly Stables) dated and broke up, Stuart's (David Alan Basche) sister Nicki (recurring guest star Leah Remini) came to town and decided to stay - much to the delight of a smitten Haskell (Wayne Knight) - and Holly (Kristen Johnston), unfortunately, saw a turbulent love life. Though chaos reigns supreme in their lives, the group is able to rely on their own little modern family. And don't forget TV Land is launching new comedy Jennifer Falls on Wednesday, June 4 at 10:30pm., their first single-camera comedy. The new original comedy stars Jaime Pressly and Jessica Walter. The series also stars Pressly's ex-My Name is Earl castmate, Ethan Suplee, as well as Missi Pyle, Nora Kirkpatrick (The Office) and Dylan Gelula (NCIS). And don't forget on August 6 at 10pm for TV Land's Hot in Cleveland animated special! In the aptly titled "The Animated Episode," the "hot" women – Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Joy (Jane Leeves), Victoria (Wendie Malick) and Elka (Betty White) – embark on an around-the-world adventure as cartoon characters, darting through pop culture hits, including scenes with homages to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, The Walking Dead and Frankenstein.
