‘Undateable’

This pleasant new comedy, from producers Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs,” “Cougar Town”) and Adam Sztykiel, feels like an odd mash-up of “Friends,” “Cheers” and “The Odd Couple.” In last week’s premiere episodes, new roommates Danny (Chris D’Elia) and Justin (Brent Morin) dealt with the wacky world of romance and dating. Most of the laughs came from Morin, as the Felix/Chandler to D’Elia’s Oscar/Fonzie/Joey. Back-to-back episodes, 9:01 p.m. Thursday, June 5, on NBC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
