Guys With Kids: Daddy Issues

<i>Guys With Kids</i>: Daddy Issues

As an actual guy with kids, I feel I can say with some authority that NBC's new Jimmy Fallon-created sitcom Guys with Kids is terrible. Say what you will about the uneven first season of Up All Night -- the network's other baby-centric comedy -- but in its best episodes that show nailed the details of new parenthood in a way that was both identifiable and hilarious. Guys with Kids, on the other hand, feels like it was conceived by a team who have never met a child, let alone watched a good sitcom before.

NBC Upfronts 2012: Once More With Feeling

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.
