Everyone loves Annie's Boobs, but will they love Justin Kirk and friends?

NBC has four new sitcoms debuting this fall, and has chosen two of them to sneak preview during its Olympic coverage — a glorious two-week stretch where people are actually watching NBC again. One of those sitcoms is "Go On," which aired last night; the other is "Animal Practice," which will air a commercial-free version of its pilot episode tomorrow night in the odd timeslot of 10:38 p.m.

'Deadwood' Rewind: Season 2, Episode 11: 'The Whores Can Come'

The camp comes together to say goodbye to William Bullock

We're almost to the end of our summer rewatch of David Milch's epic HBO Western "Deadwood." As mentioned last week, I've dropped the duplicate reviews for veterans and newbies, since the newbies didn't seem to be commenting, and can avoid being spoiled by simply not reading the comments.

A review of episode 11, "The Whores Can Come," coming up just as soon as I buy myself a bum's rush...

Review: 'Go On' - 'Pilot'

What did everybody think of the new NBC sitcom?

I posted my review of NBC's "Go Onthis morning. Now it's your turn. What did everybody else think of Matthew Perry's latest comeback vehicle? Better or worse than "Mr. Sunshine" (Yay)? Did you also see the similarities to the "Community" pilot — and, if so, did that bother you in any way? Do you think the show has the ability to make grief into the subject for a sitcom? Did you laugh at anything outside of March Sadness? And will you be watching again when the next episode airs on September 11? 

Have at it.

Does 'Friends' alum's new sitcom represent change in NBC strategy, or more of the same?

With NBC's comedy brand, there is the past, the present, and the hoped-for future.

Would Joss Whedon be interested in making Jessica Jones the center of an ABC/Marvel TV show?

Which Marvel characters should be in a Joss Whedon-developed TV series?

Would the mind behind Buffy be well-suited for Jessica Jones? Luke Cage? She-Hulk?

The sexier announcement from Disney CEO Bob Iger was that Joss Whedon will write and direct "Avengers 2," but as a fan of both Marvel Comics and Whedon's television work, I'm actually more excited that he'll be involved in developing a live-action series for Marvel Television to air on ABC.
