<i>Animal Practice</i>: Yes, the Show with the Monkey

I cannot begin to tell you how low my expectations were for Animal Practice, NBC's newest sitcom in which longtime Weeds actor Justin Kirk plays a wacky veterinarian. I have been suffering through Weeds for so many seasons that, frankly, this show sounded like some kind of sick joke my co-workers were playing on me and the addition of the monkey made the prank just plain sloppy.

How many people who you know sit patiently and watch all of the commercials during a TV show? I can't think of any either, but that doesn't mean you can't up and eliminate them completely... right?

NBC Upfronts 2012: Once More With Feeling

This morning at Radio City Music Hall, NBC unveiled their new fall lineup with the help of a lot (a lot) of singing. Those of us in attendance were treated to a performance by Voice winner Jermaine Paul, a full gospel choir and orchestra backing Smash stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Katherine McPhee on "Stand" to close the presentation and, to open things up, McPhee and Megan Hilty doing "Let Me Be Your Star," complete with a bit of The Voice judges (sans Blake Shelton) spinning their chairs for them. And then in a pre-packaged bit, Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon "found" footage of the returning shows infused with music (including The Office, Parks and Recreation, Law & Order: SVU, Meet the Press and, most amusingly, Grimm). Honestly, while NBC exec Bob Greenblatt joked that a Grimm musical episode was a long way from a reality, it might get me to start watching that show again. The network's execs promised that their fall lineup won't be all music, but there is a lot of it, and they are going really heavy on the comedies as well. In fact, they mentioned the word comedy about 1,000 times in the two hours, but given that they did see fit to renew both Community and Parks and Recreation (and I got to sit within 100 yards of Adam Scott, which probably violates my restraining order in some way), I am inclined to overlook that. However, I am not willing to overlook the fact that most of the comedies that they mentioned look mediocre and forgettable at first glance.
