JoAnna Garcia (“Privileged”) and Jennifer Finnigan star in ABC’s only new comedy to make the fall lineup.
In “Better Together,” Maddie (Finnigan) has a steady, mature nine-year relationship with boyfriend Ben (Josh Cooke), and they like it that way. Her sister Mia (Garcia) couldn’t be more different. Approaching life with a carpe diem attitude, she impulsively agrees to marry Casey (Jake Lacy), whom she’s been dating for only seven weeks.
You’d think their parents would be horrified, but instead they’ve suddenly become more free in their thinking after their careful lifestyle backfired on them in the unpredictable economy. Now it seems that Maddie and Ben are the odd couple out.

Also, we’re psyched to see the adorable Garcia back, and this time doing comedy, which is a good fit for her quirky charms. It’s possible that Lacy might upstage her though in his goofy antics, but we’re hoping that’s only the result of seeing small snippets.
Finally, it’s time to meet the parents, and Debra Jo Rupp (“The ’70s Show”) is just as fun as ever.
This could be promising, especially sandwiched between “The Middle” and “Modern Family,” but we’d think it’d be better if it were paired with “Cougar Town.”
