'Go On': Matthew Perry returns to NBC -- how does his post-'Friends' career stack up?

Matthew Perry begins his third starring role in a TV series since the end of "Friends" Wednesday (Aug. 8) when his new NBC comedy, "Go On," gets a commercial-free preview following the Olympics broadcast.He's probably hoping it goes better than the other two: Both "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and "Mr. Sunshine" were canceled after just one season. Perry has done acclaimed guest work in dramas -- he was nominated for a guest-acting Emmy on "The West Wing" in the final season of "Friends," and he had a well-received turn on "The Good Wife" last season -- but his post-"Friends" lead roles haven't panned out.In that regard, he's not unlike his fellow "Friends" stars, all of whom have had some serious ups and downs since their career-defining roles on the NBC sitcom.Jennifer Aniston has easily had the highest profile of the six stars, but her movie career since 2004 has had at least as...

The Matthew Perry-led comedy will air Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c this fall. "Go On" -- Misery loves company. Unless you're sportscaster Ryan King (Matthew Perry, "Friends," "Mr. Sunshine") who thinks misery should just be left alone.

And while he seems like his same old charming, cocky self, his boss won't set him back on the air until he seeks counseling.
