However, in an interview with Assignment X, Chase said: "I'm very happy. It's a lot of fun and it's a great group of people in every way – cast, directors, writers."
He continued: "It's a lot harder work than I thought in terms of the hours, but it's worth it. I've never watched a sitcom in my life, and somehow I took a job on one, and I find it very amusing and fun."
Harmon reportedly suggested that Chase may have been drunk when he left an abusive message on his answer-phone.
