On what's been a strange, harrowing day of news from Boston, it's nice to have an occasional distraction. So if you'd like to turn away from the city on lockdown for a laugh, we've got an exclusive clip from the first of tonight's two "Happy Endingsepisodes.

In "The Ballad of Lon Sarofsky," the gang pushes Max to get a job so he can stop sponging off of them. His response is to sign up for the Mr. Super Gay Chicago pageant. As you can see in this clip (embedded at the top of this post), it does not go smoothly.

That episode is supposed to air at 8, followed by another new one at 8:30, but there's a chance one or both may be pre-empted by, naturally, news coverage from Boston. So enjoy the laugh while you can.
