I don’t think anybody else has done a permanent divorce like that, or moved people out of their home, or dissolved their businesses or anything. So they were worried. I never said to anyone that Elisabeth was leaving the show. I just said that the character was moving on and you’ll have to watch. That’s what I always say: ‘You’ll have to watch.’ And you know what?

The series, which began on the WB.com, is quietly entering it’s fourth season this summer and is arguably the best comedy on television no one watches. Corddry and I sat down to talk about this, among other things. Like death.
