I think Josh Gad the guy everybody hates is one of the creators of the show

Jenna Bush interviewed him on Rock Center.

Hold your applause people

I couldn't get through the first 10 minutes of the pilot. That was so bad.

Got a 1.2 folks.

Thankfully we will be rid of this soon.

I'd rather watch Animal Practice.

What are they going to put?

Save Me with Anne Heche isn't ready. They only shot 2 episodes and have changed showrunners. That might not be ready until late Spring.

Up All Night only has like 4 episodes left when it returns from it's makeover.

Double-up on Community?

You think NBC will keep a show that will probably get a 1.1 or so next week in that lineup? It'll get replaced with something - maybe even Go On repeats.

Save Me is dead. It'll get the Bent burnoff in late April. Why NBC does this every year is beyond me.

The entire Thursday night comedy lineup is a disaster already ratings-wise. The Office used to get about 3.5 and sometimes even 4.0. Not it barely hovers over 2.0.

Except getting a 1.2 airing after a 2.1 isn't so good. Especially when Parks get s 1.9 airing after 30 Rock.

So a 1.2 for a show airing its second episode is dead. It took a few weeks for Animal Practice to get that without a lead-in from the biggest Comedy on the network.

I guess it depends how many episodes are ready to go. I can see them cancelling the series but running the ones they've made.

I'd rather see a series based on the Zero Effect.
