<I>Brooklyn Nine-Nine</i>: This Crime Comedy Does Pay Off

To be honest, during upfront week, I saw the teaser for this show and immediately jumped to the conclusion that it would be terrible. Like the crowd at the recent James Franco roast, I presumed that we would all be counting the minutes until this cop sitcom would be put out of its misery. And, to be fair, I had reason to doubt it. Andy Samberg is a lot to take even in small doses (much less as the lead of series) and a truly funny show about a detective is rare. But despite the star and silly concept, this sitcom is by far the single funniest new show this fall, delivering 22 tightly scripted minutes of straight-up comedy.

NBC is cashing in on the post-Olympics "Go America" sentiment with this new pro-military show. And while initially we were suspect about how watchable this show would be, given that NBC's last new reality show was Love in the Wild, we were pleasantly surprised at how this had glimmers of Top Shot with some "celebrities" in the mix.
