Never really understood why people think 30 rock is so great. There are maybe 2 funny characters on the show and only 1 of them gets enough screen time. (The assistant and Keneth.)
The Office is rapidly on the decline. They're just rehashing story lines at this point and going with cliches. They had a good chance at using the takeover as a source of comedy but so far they've blew it.
Community is the one thing that I am psyched about. Great show Chevy Chase is brilliant like always and Danny Pudi (Abed) is a genius.
