This just in: After reporting earlier that Matthew Perry has bought a house in the Sunset Strip area, we've learned that the actor has listed his condo in West Hollywood's Sierra Towers at $2,995,000. The unit, which he purchased from Elton John in 2005 for $3.2 million, is on the 22nd floor. It has two bedrooms and 21/2 bathrooms in 1,672 square feet. The modern condo sits on the southeast corner of the high-rise with walls of glass and a balcony offering skyline views.

For reasons that don't make an awful lot of sense, many people remain concerned about the fate of "Friends"cast members who are not Jennifer Aniston. We applaud the comedic elasticity of Lisa Kudrow, pulled for Courteney Cox to overcome the initial premise of "Cougar Town," cheer when Matt LeBlanc parodies himself on"Episodes" and wonder whatever happened to David Schwimmer. This fond, familial (and most certainly nonreciprocal) fretting reaches its zenith around Matthew Perry, who played the admittedly endearing Chandler Bing.

Matthew Perry hasn't fully sat down before he lays out the ground rules. "Don't be mean," he said before settling into a mid-morning interview at a hotel bar (he drank Red Bull) in Beverly Hills. "Sometimes people are mean. " By "people," he's referring to the media. And there's only a touch of sarcasm that coats his tone. The 43-year-old actor, best known for his wily performance as Chandler Bing on NBC's long-running sitcom "Friends," has grown accustomed to scrutiny.

NBC's new "Hollywood Game Night" had me at Jane Lynch. At this point it's easier to name the projects she hasn't starred or guest-starred on ("Game of Thrones"? "The Real Housewives of Orange County"?), but as far as I know, she's never done a game show. And that just seems wrong. Trained in improv, which is the closest anyone gets to live television these days, Lynch could have absolutely held her own against Paul Lynde and Carol Burnett in the halcyon days of the original "Hollywood Squares" and "Password.

Uneasy fans of "Revolution," "The New Normal" and "Go On" can fill their DVRs with abandon as of now. All three freshmen series have been picked up by NBC for full-season orders.

The news keeps getting stranger and stranger for "Community. " The NBC sitcom has bounced back from a near-death experience a year ago and will return for Season 5 next year. The network confirmed late Friday that it will pick up the eccentric comedy for another go-round, on a day when a batch of other shows, including the Matthew Perry vehicle "Go On," learned they were not making the cut. The perennially low-rated "Community" was considered at death's door last year, when show runner Dan Harmon was ushered to the door.
