TV show description:      
This comedic TV series revolves around three divorced men who share an apartment across the hall from their female divorce attorney and landlord.

Holly Brooks (Kristen Johnston) has never been married and is a top divorce attorney. While often playing matchmaker for her divorced male friends, Holly’s also recently single (having broken off an engagement) and struggles to meet the right man.

She’s also the landlord of an apartment across the hall from her own and rents it to her former clients and friends. Holly’s newest single client is Stuart Gardner (David Alan Basche), a successful dentist. He’s recently divorced and is trying to get over his feelings for his ex-wife.

Stuart moves in with two other divorcees; Phil Chase (Donald Faison) and Haskell Lutz (Wayne Knight). Phil is a sports agent and a womanizer. While seemingly focused only on his own interests, he often reveals a sensitive and helpful side. Haskell is a lazy, sardonic man who makes a living selling various items on the Internet and was once a professional bowler.

Things get off to a shaky start for Phil and Haskell when they begin to have reservations about living with clingy Stuart, but Holly is right across the hall to help them steer clear of any catastrophes. Meanwhile, Holly’s hard-partying assistant Eden (Kelly Stables), doesn’t let her professionalism get in the way of prying into her boss’s personal life.

As time progresses, the guys begin to realize that the issues they have with each other are the same ones that they had with their ex-wives.

    Please TV land bring back the funniest show on to date. The exes have made me laugh more than I had in many years. It is a wonderful ensemble.

    I caught an episode of “The Exes” on Hulu after a show I was watching had ended. I couldn’t believe how immediately pulled into “The Exes” I was. The casting is superb, the story lines are entertaining, humorous and original and I’ve not seen one boring episode…..ever. Most series have a ‘slower’ episode here or there but every single one I’ve watched of “The Exes” has been first rate. I don’t know whether the show will continue but I will be genuinely disappointed if it doesn’t come back. This series is a treasure. You can’t find one like it anywhere.

    I have watch and loved comedy my whole life . In my opinion this is the best show since I love Lucy. The actors all have brilliant comic timing and the writing is top rate. It be a crime not to bring it back, it is one of the few reasons I watch TV land . I think it would be a hit on any other station.

    Please don’t cancel the Exes. Its funny. Makes me laugh and all the characters for the roles.
    Keep it on TVLand

    Also, whoever picked the actors for The Exes did a great job. Every actor fits their character perfectly. A nice unique blend.

    Holly’s over acting is what makes her funny. She would be boring otherwise. I love The Exes. Keep it going.

      The Exes is (was?) one of the best shows ever on TV. It is rare when a TV show captures my attention, and this one did from its very first episode. I have rarely watched regular TV shows for 30 years, but the Exes is (was?) one of the best shows for mature adults ever on the tube. The last episode seemed like a finale. I hope it wasn’t. I hope it’s not over.

    This show would be very good if Holly were removed. She overacts, to say the least. Leah Rimini is great, and would save he show.


    I am sooo glad that the Exes is on again, I love to watch the EXES, my favorite show. I do no like Hot in Cleveland, tried to, but do not get into it. PLEASE CONTINUE WITH THE EXES!!!!

  9. Me says

    This show stinks and I am sad Leah Remini joined the cast. Will NEVER watch it and if TVLand cancelled Hot in Cleveland, this show should be cancelled as well because it is sub par and an embarrassment.
