Double Down

Last week, I asked some questions about whether NBC should concentrate on its smart comedy brand. This week, it looks like they’re doing exactly that. They’ve picked up another show from Dan Goor, the producer behind Parks and Recreation, of which I very much like what I’ve seen, though I have to watch more to be able to write about it the way I’d really like to. Goor’s new show is apparently a semi-wacky medical drama, which will fill a hole in NBC’s prime time programming—the network won’t doesn’t have a medical show despite the popularity of the drama, and the USA Network’s done a nice job of proving, via Royal Pains, that medical drama isn’t the only way to engage audiences. I’ll look forward to NBC finding another way to put lots of fast-talking people together in small rooms and long hallways.
