The Good Place on NBC

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Anyone else watching this? The demons doing karaoke of the Nixon tapes on the last episode was extremely my shit.

show runners said they mapped out several seasons, appropriately after consulting with Lindelof

Is this the new Grinder? Doomed network show beloved by comedy nerds? I haven't watched either yet.

ratings are fine (initial but especially +7) and most industry watcher folks peoples expect it to get picked up for a second season... limited cost/risk as a 13 ep season, produced by Universal, etc. and it keeps Schur happy. it'll stick for a few years. hopefully it can build an audience after it hits Netflix and folks can catch up... but if it more or less holds the ratings it currently has, it isnt going anywhere regardless.

This is a lot better than The Grinder. This at least has a modicum of intelligence.

This is my chicken soup sitcom. Dog in wheelbarrow killed me. Love Janet. NBC's war on Florida continues. And I'll take all the Danson I can get. But yeah this probably won't be around long.

Blurst, Yup. This is one of the extremely rare good shows IMO. No way it gets season 3.

all due respect gramma but i'd say at least watch the whole first season before making a judgment. it's pretty short so not that tough to do

i can't really think of any sitcoms that are fully formed right out of the gates except for arrested development
