Update: TV Land has issued a press release.

New York, NY – February 3, 2014 – TV Land has picked up its hit original series “The Exes” for a 12-episode fourth season, it was announced today by TV Land President, Larry W. Jones. The series stars critically-acclaimed actors, Donald Faison (“Scrubs”), Wayne Knight (“Seinfeld”), David Alan Basche (“The Starter Wife”), Kelly Stables (“Two and a Half Men”) and Kristen Johnston (“3rd Rock From The Sun”), with Leah Remini (“The King of Queens”) featured in several of the episodes in season three. The show currently airs on TV Land every Wednesday at 10pm ET/PT with the season finale scheduled for February 26.  Season four will debut this summer.
“From the moment we read the very first script for ‘The Exes,’ we fell in love,” said Jones.  “This series has a comedy ensemble that’s a force to be reckoned with, and it just keeps getting better and better.”
“The Exes” revolves around the unlikely trio of Phil (Faison), Haskell (Knight) and Stuart (Basche), three roommates and divorcés who have finally found bromance after initially being forced to live together by their divorce attorney and landlord, Holly (Johnston). Most recently, Leah Remini (“The King of Queens”) joined the sitcom in a recurring role, appearing in seven of the 10 episodes this season as Nicki, a tough talking, no-nonsense woman from Staten Island. After discovering that her husband had an affair, she retreats to Manhattan, seeking comfort from her brother Stuart and integrating herself into the lives of his friends.
Season three of “The Exes” has averaged 1.3 million total viewers, up +69% compared to TV Land’s primetime average (Source: Nielsen, 6/19/13-1/29/14, 16 telecasts, L+7).

    Testing the new format.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I’m not too excited about any TV Land shows, but this is the best on the channel. I prefer it to Hot in Cleveland is a ton better than Kirstie

  • RaveDave001

    Good news, one of the better sitcoms on tv.

  • BlackMasamune

    I hope they bring back the original theme song.

    The Exes is by far the best sitcom on TVLand.

    Oh yessss! I was afraid that they were going to cancel it in order to give a chance to Kirstie…

    Cool, I like this show.

  • Rebecca

    Also, love the new format. When I couldn’t post the last couple days, I thought I’d been banned, lol. I’m glad it was just closed for re-formatting.

    Of all the posters here you would be the least likely to ever be banned. Your comments are not only civil and on topic but you write in complete sentences using verbs and adjectives. If anything you should be made the TVBTN grammar police chief ):

    Thank you, Joe. :-)

    I like the comparison to TVLand’s primetime average- which is filled mostly with reruns. :) Since Kirstie is performing similarly, will it get renewed? Or does The Exes make a better renewal, given this is its third season?

  • Really?

    Happily Divorced had similar numbers to The Exes and better numbers that The Soul Man. I wonder why it was canceled when these shows were renewed.
