super fun night rebel wilson episode 2 premiere abc 'Super Fun Night': Rebel Wilson comedy to debut with episode 2

“Super Fun Night,” a new ABC comedy starring Rebel Wilson (“Pitch Perfect,” “Bridesmaids”), will not premiere with its original pilot episode. Instead, the show will bring out episode 2 as the first things audiences see (per TVLine).

This may be a good choice.

In the comedy, Kimme (Wilson) and her two best friends are happy but socially awkward friends who spend every Friday evening in, entertaining themselves. The pilot episode has Kimmie getting a job promotion that makes her decide to try going out for once. Wacky hijinks naturally ensue, making the women question going out of doors ever again.

The new first episode focuses on another Friday night out on the town. Since Kimmie has a major fear of singing in public, she and her friends will head to a piano bar for some tunes. Matt Lucas (who shared scenes with Wilson in “Bridesmaids”) guest-stars in the episode.

Why the change? Lots of reasons are possible. ABC may have wanted to start off with a known guest star. Alternatively, a whole lot of negative reviews of the overly awkward pilot may have led to the early release of a stronger episode.

“Super Fun Night” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
