The premiere of Twenty Good Years is on AOL TV

Twenty Good YearsWell, it's not exactly as hotly-anticipated as tonight's other premiere, 30 Rock, but if you want to see John Lithgow and Jeffery Tambor's sitcom Twenty Good Years before it premieres at 8:30 tonight, here's your chance.

Hoof it on over to AOL TV, which is showing video of the entire pilot. In case you're not familiar with the show, Lithgow and Tambor are playing two sixty-year-old friends who have decided to break the shackles of their high-profile but comfortable lives (Lithgow's a surgeon, Tambor's a judge) and live life to the fullest in the twenty good years they have left. The pilot was pretty standard fare, a "let's set this thing up" episode that was barely saved by the comedic skills of its two stars. But it's worth watching, especially if you need to kill time before or after lunch. And if you go watch the 30 Rock premiere online, too, you'll be able to watch the Mets-Cards game tonight without guilt. So everybody wins!

(Side note: Joel and I talk about all of these and more in the latest APB podcast.)

So, to start things off, we've got a slew of NBC pilots to cover: Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, Kidnapped, 20 Good Years, 30 Rock and The Black Donnellys.
