Bill Lawrence believes in the idea of reclaiming traditional multi-camera comedy as a form to be admired rather than scorned by the cool kids. Earlier this year, the "Scrubs" creator gave us TBS' likable, funny multi-cam sitcom "Ground Floor" (which has already been renewed for a second season), and when NBC wouldn't give a timeslot to his other new multi-cam show "Undateable," he took his stand-up-heavy cast (including Chris D'Elia and Ron Funches) on a nationwide tour of comedy clubs to drum up word of mouth support. He finally has his premiere date, even if it's after the broadcast network season will have ended, and even if that scheduling suggests NBC doesn't picture a long future for the show. Lawrence isn't infallible, but his cause is just and his cast is funny.
