Here’s a new potential sitcom to hold you over until finding out that Community and Happy Endings aren’t being renewed for a new season. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel employed a slight twist on the classic 1970s sitcom The Odd Couple, which starred Jack Klugman and Tony Randall. But instead of two wildly different personalities living together, what would happen if the new pope and the old one combined lifestyles and attempted to split a studio apartment? Welcome to The Godd Couple. I’d love to hear the best combination of actors in the comments section. I’m thinking Woody Allen and Steve Martin. Anyone able to think of something better?
