Is the new Must-See TV really Must-See?
So NBC has all these dramatic commercials that they're running over and over again, saying that they've had a long tradition of having the best comedies on Thursday nights, and starting next week they'll be a return to NBC's "Must-See Thursday" that they used to have when shows like Friends and The Cosby Show ruled the airwaves.
But will it really be "Must-See TV?" Sure, The Office is a great show, and I can see if becoming a classic, but is My Name Is Earl really "Must-See" worthy? I mean, yeah, it's a good show, but I don't know if it's been on long enough or has the wall-to-wall critical acclaim. And what about Four Kings and Will and Grace? Four Kings hasn't even been on yet (the pilot is getting mixed reviews at best) and Will and Grace is in its last season!
How does all this add up to the "Must-See" future of NBC comedy?
