If we know anything about Jennifer Aniston right now, it's that she loves to have a good time.

Just take a look at what she let Ellen DeGeneres do to her in the new TV spot for her talk show.

And now we're hoping Ms. Aniston will continue riding the fun train by guesting on Matthew Perry's upcoming new NBC sitcom, Go On.

The show centers a sportscaster (Perry) who joins a support group after his wife dies in a car accident.

"You know, it's one of those shows that we can have guest stars all the time because people are coming in and out of the group all the time," says costar Tyler James Williams, who you may remember from his days playing Chris Rock's younger self in Everybody Hates Chris. "There's no telling who we could have. We already had [football star] Terrell Owens in our pilot, so I'm expecting it to happen a lot."

In fact, Friends has been used in promos for Go On.

"They're announcing all these great shows that NBC has had, but they keep forgetting Matthew's," Williams, 19, said with a laugh at the Teen Choice Awards. "So we've already have had Friends references all over the place."

Williams plays a man who is trying to cope with a brother who's left in a coma after a skiing accident.

Are they sure this is sitcom material?

"The show is funny and it's a comedy, but we have to acknowledge that these are real issues that people are dealing with," Williams explained. "It's finding that line. As funny as it is, it's also real issues. You find the funny in the bad things."

Here's hoping we're laughing.

(NBC and E! Online are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
