'Happy Endings' Preview: Witness the Death of Alex's Racist Parrot (Exclusive Video)
Tyler the racist parrot has chirped his last "white power."
Happy Endings returns from its brief holiday hiatus Sunday -- that's right, Sunday -- and the first episode back finds Penny (Casey Wilson) and Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) accidentally dispatching Alex's (Elisha Cuthbert) not-so-cherished pet with glue fumes. Tyler, for anyone who doesn't remember, was adopted on Craigslist from someone who brainwashed him with racist and homophobic catchphrases.

The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive look at the new episode, and it appears Penny handles the pressure of the cover-up much better than Brad.
Happy Endings, as well as Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23, is doubling up on ABC for much of January. In addition to airing in the regular 9 p.m. Tuesday slot, the network is airing additional originals on 10 p.m. Sundays on Jan. 6, 13 and 20. All but one of those episodes looks to be parrot-free.
