The Odd Couple, “The Audit Couple” (Thursday, May 14, 8:30/7:30c, CBS)

Three’s a crowd in tonight’s season finale of the freshman CBS comedy. Guest star Lauren Graham (Parenthood) visits the apartment as Oscar’s (Matthew Perry) ex-wife Gaby after the IRS decides to audit the former couple. When the two butt heads, it’s up to Felix (Thomas Lennon) to mediate between the feisty pair, but he suddenly realizes that he might be the reason Oscar was audited in the first place.

The highlight of the episode, much like most of the first season, is the comedic chemistry between Perry and Lennon, who particularly excels at the physical comedy in his role as the uptight roommate. Yvette Nicole Brown (Dani), Wendell Pierce (Teddy) and Lindsay Sloane (Emily) round out the rest of the winning ensemble responsible for making Couple one of the biggest television comedy success stories of the year.
