Full Trailers For NBC's Four New Fall Comedies


Is sad the new funny? It might be on Tuesdays on NBC. The trailers for Go On and The New Normal suggest a lot of crying and looking in the distance at nothing. Where Animal Practice and Guys with Kids looks more like silly fun times (one literally stars a monkey). My money (yep, I bet on pilots) is for Go On to be the best of these shows; even in this trailer, there is a confidence and a clear comedic voice. It's hard to say if that will translate into ratings or if it will be too dark and end up another underappreciated NBC sitcom. The rest of the trailers are below, in order of which looks the best:

    Yeech, these will probably be popular, then all other TV will be cancelled and replaced with photocopies…. or not. At least we have arrested development on Netflix.

    Some of these seem like a 15 minute Adult Swim show that they're trying to stretch to a half hour.

    Animal Practice looks like Children's Hospital toned down and stretched out.

    Hmmm, not impressed.  Go On looks better suited as a film with a plot path and closure after 90 minutes.  The New Normal did not do anything for me.  The concept is too trite and rife with stereotypes. Does NBC test screen any of this stuff before it commits?

    I'm a sucker for anything with little helper monkeys in it.
