Episode synopsis: Go On (NBC) Episode 21 “Fast Breakup” – Ryan (Matthew Perry) finds a new rival in the K-Ball Mascot. Also, Ryan is unsure how to handle a flirty, drunk-dial call from his secretary Carrie(Allison Miller). In a strange role reversal, Ryan becomes counselor to Lauren (Laure Benanti) in her confused love life while the group prepares a bachelorette party that will never be.Also starring Brett Gelman, Suzy Nakamura, Julie White, Sarah Baker, 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”).
