Episode synopsis: Go On (NBC) Episode 19 “Go for the Gold Watch” – Ryan’s (Matthew Perry) show is rated #1 but even this new, exalted status does not provide the personal happiness he wants in his life. Lauren (Laura Benanti) explains that happiness comes from within and real joy can only be found by helping others. Ryan attempts to achieve inner happiness by helping Danny (Seth Morris) hook up with Sonia (Sarah Baker) but she fancies the stranger, Carlo (Ben Falcone) instead. Meanwhile Owen (Tyler James Williams) and Anne (Julie White) snoop around the house of the strange Mr. K (Brett Gelman) only to leave more disturbed than when they arrived.Guest starring, Terrell Owens, Rich Eisen, El Mandril. Also starring, Suzy Nakamura, Tonita Castro, John Cho and Hayes MacArthur.

Show Summary: Matthew Perry (“Friends,” “Mr. Sunshine”) stars as Ryan King, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan’s alpha-male boss, Steven (John Cho, “Star Trek,” “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle”), has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air.

A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for “life change” where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss. On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worst.

Ryan’s total lack of interest in “the healing process” proves distracting, and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren, played by Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti (“The Playboy Club”). Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn’t really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on. Also starring are Tony Award winner Julie White (“Transformers”) as Anne, Tyler James Williams (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as Owen, Suzy Nakamura (“Dodgeball”) as Yolanda, and Brett Gelman as Mr.K (“30 Minutes or Less”).
