The season finale of "Go On" is in the books, and the show's prospects for next season are up in the air. After a strong fall run airing after "The Voice," the show's ratings dropped off sharply without the lead-in, putting its prospects for a second season very much in question (although Zap2it readers would like it to return). So would this Zap2it writer. Early in the season, I wrote about how well "Go On" was coming together, and it's continued to improve as the season has gone on. The show has remained true to the idea that Ryan King (Matthew Perry) and the other members of his therapy group are all bent or broken in some way.

It absolutely could, particularly... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/go-on-season-finale---urn-ed-run-why-matthew-perry-and-co-deserve-a-second-season.html

"Go On" has a new timeslot for its final two episodes of the season, so after "The Office" on Thursday (April 4) you'll have the pleasure of seeing Matthew Perry dressed as a basketball.Ryan (Perry), it seems, becomes jealous of the new KBAL mascot in Thursday's episode, "Fast Breakup" -- but not so much that he's above putting on the costume. He's having trouble processing a message from a drunk-dialing Carrie (Allison Miller), so he turns to Lauren (Laura Benanti) for advice.Lauren, in turn, is having serious doubts about going through with her marriage, and he offers his thoughts on what she should do. Somewhat surprisingly to both of them, the advice on both sides is pretty sound -- though neither one of them is ready to deal with it in person."Go On" airs at 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC.
