Which is better: Must-See now or Must-See then?
When NBC announced their new Thursday night schedule, a lot of people (including NBC) started to say that this was "Must-See TV" all over again. And not only does Newsday's Verne Gay agree, he thinks that the new schedule is better than the old one.
What do you think? There were many different "Must-See" Thursday night schedules on NBC over the years, so we could pick and choose. Some had Frasier, some had Wings, some had Mad About You. But let's make it an even 10 years ago. The 1996 "Must-See" Thursday night schedule was Friends at 8, The Single Guy at 8:30, Seinfeld at 9, Suddenly Susan at 9:30, and ER at 10. The schedule now is My Name Is Earl at 8, The Office at 8:30, Scrubs at 9, 30 Rock at 9:30, and ER at 10.
Wow, this is a hard one for me. I was never that into Frasier or Mad About You, but I loved both Friends and Seinfeld. Suddenly Susan certainly drag the old schedule down a notch. Hmmm...I think it actually might be a tie for me, even though The Office (like Friends and Seinfeld) is one of my favorite shows of all-time. Interesting that ER is still on the schedule. I'd pick the 1996 ER over the 2006 one.
