Plot Synopsis

In this half-hour comedy series, 26-year-old Cooper Barrett uses cautionary tales from his life -- a night in jail, crazy ex-girlfriends, going broke -- to help the youth of America survive their twenties, celebrating the mistakes and misadventures people make during the years after college before settling down. A couple of years out of college, Cooper still doesn't have his dream job and is roommates with Barry, the jackass, who can't stay out of trouble; and Neal, the group's nerd, who is excited about his new job working in an office, designing scalable software platforms. Across the hall from them lives Kelly Bishop, a beautiful physical therapist, who Cooper has possibly fallen for. Rounding out the gang is Cooper's older brother, Josh, who is constantly popping in to hang with the fellas and get some peace from his wife Leslie and their kids.
On Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 7pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the series finale of COOPER BARRETT'S GUIDE TO LIFE. In the season ender, "How to Survive Your Birthday," the gang throws Cooper a surprise birthday party, but things go south after Kelly witnesses Cooper and Ramona sharing a kiss.
