'Trophy Wife' ends tonight: Why we'll miss it

I wrote the first version of this post — a reaction to Trophy Wife‘s first season finale — last week, when there was still a small, shimmering chance that the show might live to see another season. Alas, in the time between then and now, ABC decided to ax one of the year’s best new sitcoms — meaning that my assessment of season 1 and collection of hopes for season 2 must be retrofitted into a eulogy.

It goes without saying that this is a damn shame. I spent all year recommending this series to anyone who’d listen, especially ex-Modern Family fans who had grown disillusioned with ABC’s flagship sitcom. Trophy Wife has — had — all of ModFam‘s heart and humor with none of its laziness or weird, mean edge (seriously, do Cam and Mitchell even like each other?), and it remains criminal that the network never saw fit to program the newer show at 9:30 on Wednesdays.

But at this point, there’s no use in complaining about Trophy Wife‘s crappy time slot, or its crappy, misleading title (which may shoulder much of the blame for why it never caught on; call it the Cougar Town effect).

Malin Akerman showcases the almost civilized parts of Canada in 'Funny or Die' clip -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As every American who’s ever visited Canada knows, our neighbor to the north is a frozen lawless wasteland in which Liam Neeson himself would struggle to survive. There’s marauding packs of wolves, vicious polar bears, and the bitter cold. My god, the bitter cold! Two America-loving Americans, though, were willing to brave the elements when one of them was assigned to a frontier outpost called Toronto. Jenny and Derek connected with a representative (Malin Akerman) from the native population, who was willing to show them some of the local non-igloo homes in this Funny or Die episode of House Hunters International.
