    What are you expecting out of these comedies?


    I have only seen commercials for Animal Practice, Go On, Guys With Kids, and The New Normal.

    1600 Penn, Animal Practice, Go On, Guys With Kids, The New Normal, Next Caller, Save Me


    There are so many new comedies on this year, and unfortunately none have really stood out to me. I could see myself checking out 1600 Penn, Go On and Next Caller, but with all three I think the success of the show depends on the male lead (Josh Gad, Matthew Perry & Dane Cook, respectively) and how their characters are portrayed (at the moment both Perry and Cook come across as a bit to sarcastic and arrogant) and how they interact with the rest of the cast.


    I think The New Normal will do well being by Ryan Murphy and all, but it's not my thing. Save Me seems a very weird concept for a network sitcom, and although I've never seen Enlightened or The Big C, it reminds me quite a lot of them (I can't see it doing well though).


    As for Animal Practice and Guys With Kids, they are one-joke sitcoms pushed to the extreme. I won't be watching them.

    I saw the first episode of Animal Practice (a special preview I think) and it wasn't too bad, probably won't last 5 seasons but had some ok laughs in it

    I have seen the preveiw of Go On, Animal Practice, and The New Normal.


    I believe that Go On will be REALLY REALLY GREAT!


    I believe that The New Normal will be REALLY GOOD!


    I am not so sure about Animal Practice.


    Guys With Kids has a premire Friday @ 8:00

    1600 Penn, Next Caller, and Save Me will begin later on, probably in 2013 winter/spring.


    Go On and The New Normal both picked up for complete 22 episode seasons!

    Next Caller has been given the boot. Wish it had been "Save Me", but whatever.

    So with Go On and The New Normal renewed and Animal Practice cancelled, what does everyone think the chance of Guys With Kids staying around with 1600 Penn and Save Me waiting in the wings for midseason? Will it be cancelled to make room for them, or will the network keep it around to see how the other new comedies compare against it?

    I personally think Guys With Kids, especially after the most recent trainwreck episode, should be canceled. I think that Save Me should NOT air, but 1600 Penn should. Next Caller should be brought back as well!

    I don't think NBC has any funny comedies anymore. To be honest, I don't even watch NBC anymore.
