With the network upfronts (where the new Fall line-ups are announced to advertisers) just around the corner, The Futon Critic's Brian Ford Sullivan takes a very thorough look at NBC's potential schedule. In his "What They Did Wrong" analysis, Sullivan notes that NBC Entertainment President Jeff Zucker might want to invest in the adult undergarment industry:
Is anyone else disturbed by the fact that next season NBC will have just two, think about that - TWO, comedies older that two seasons on its schedule? This, the network that at one point had more than a dozen comedies on its schedule less than five years ago? If that doesn't scare the shit out of Jeff Zucker I don't know what does. Sure "Joey" will bring some name recognition but that brings the grand total to three "veterans."
If it makes Jeff feel any better, we'll probably shit our pants if Joey is a hit.
