Elisha Cuthbert from “One Big Happy”

Elisha Cuthbert called in to talk about the season finale of “One Big Happy,” airing tonight at 8:30 Central on NBC-5 Chicago.   We talked about the challenges and advantages of a short season (the show had a 6-episode run), shooting in front of a live audience vs. a single camera production (like she had on “Happy Endings”), and how much of an influence Ellen had in Elisha’s portrayal of lead character Lizzy.

Chris Williams from “One Big Happy”

Chris Williams plays “Roy” on NBC’s new comedy “One Big Happy.”  Chris gave us a perfect synopsis of the show, an excellent one-line elevator pitch for his character, and sent out some specific, non-pandering love to Chicago.   I also gave him some advice for combining his many talents (stand-up comedy, Tae Kwon Do, marathon running) into a killer one-hour special.   A new episode of “One Big Happy” airs tonight at 8:30 central on NBC-5 Chicago.
