NBC Announces New 2009 – 2010 Television Shows
NBC has just released details on six new shows they’re picking up for the 2009/2010 television series. The batch is made up of 4 new dramas (half of which are medical dramas) and 2 new comedies. Looks like the trend continues with ditching the half-hour sitcoms in favor of hour-long dramas. Nuts. I can barely pay attention long enough to…
Oh, hello there. Come on in and check out the blurbs and preview clips for each of the new NBC shows for next season. If you’re persistent you’ll be rewarded at the very bottom with a preview of Joel McHale‘s new comedy “Community.” McHale is hilarious as the host of E!’s “The Soup,” but I’m worried about his first attempt at network comedy. Give the previews a watch and see what you think.
Parenthood: A contemporary re-imagining of the blockbuster film, depicting the Braverman family — four grown siblings sharing the headaches, heartaches and joy of being parents.

When she joins a popular online dating site, she gets a little help from her dating counselor Ravi (Amir Talai, “The Ex List”) – who requires her to take a 100-question compatibility test. The questions aren’t easy for Charlotte to answer, and each one requires her to recount a poignant and humorous time in her life with friends Leslie (Elizabeth Ho, “Women’s Murder Club”), Jill (Joy Suprano, NBC’s “Law & Order”), Mike (Christopher Moynihan “For Your Consideration”) and Wayne (David Walton “Quarterlife”). James Burrows (“Will & Grace,” “Friends,”) directs, and Christopher Moynihan (“For Your Consideration”) executive produces.
