New Tonight 8/7c. Catch up on the season premiere online.
Ryan is feeling lonely. In fact, he tells his talk radio audience that the reason he won't be running the New York Marathon is because long distance running is lonely. On the way out of work, Steven teases Ryan's assistant Carrie, who's dressed for a night on the town. She declares that this is her first night out in two weeks, and no one's going to spoil it. Contrary to popular belief, Ryan hasn't been keeping her at the office late because there's a lot of work to do, but because he doesn't want to go home to his empty house - so he keeps coming up with lamer and lamer excuses to work late. Then, when he gets bored of the work, he tortures Carrie with the proposition, "You know what might be fun...?" which always has a lame activity to go along with it.
