|wprager||Cancelling shows to air more Whitney? Ouch! I'm still watching Community, Parks & Rec and The Office -- and the last one is on life support. I think that's it for NBC. Back in the day of Tartikoff NBC made up the bulk of my viewing.|

|PFD||I think it probably wasn't controversial enough. I havent' seen any of it, but I'm surprised given it was one of the most talked about prior to the season's launch.|

I tuned into Whitney, for all the promoting NBC put into the show, I have to say it was bad. I don't normally tune out half way through, but I killed it half way in. She was on Howard Stern this week and if this was a cable show on HBO or something it would a monster hit. Sadly, her style of comedy is not what the show had.
I also tuned into the L&O: SVU premiere and they should've replaced Stabler with another guy. I also dislike how they focused a bit on Olivia and her relationship with Stabler. The thing I always liked about L&O was that the cops were cops and the focus was the case. By not developing their backstories as much, it made it easier to switch out actors. I will still watch, but it has lost a step.
My PVR also has Prime Suspect, Playboy Club and Free Agents on it. I hope that they are good.

|wprager||Best show on NBC is Parks and Rec. Soooo glad I won't have to wait until February this year. 30 Rock pushed to mid-season -- I guess that's to accommodate Tina Fey's pregnancy, but IMO it's been supplanted by P&R as the best NBC sitcom now. Too bad it can't get better ratings.|

|CastleRockDays||The only show I really watch on NBC is America's Got Talent, and my brother likes to watch The Apprentice.|

Free Agents looks to be pretty funny, I think it'll fit in nicely with Community/Parks/Office.
I predict the first cancellations from NBC to be The Playboy Club and Whitney.
