NBCâ€™s Fall ScheduleÂ (LW) is out today. Iâ€™m not sure I care about this too much. The Voice and Sunday Night Football appear to make up half the schedule. There is really only one show Iâ€™m at all interested in watching, A to Z. Itâ€™s a romsitcom starring The Mother from HIMYM and Rashia Jones is one of the producers. Those facts got me to watch the trailerÂ (LW), which hooked me.
The biggest hole in the NBC schedule is the cancellation of CommunityÂ (LW), which isnâ€™t too surprising except if they werenâ€™t going to cancel it the past three years, there wasnâ€™t much reason to cancel it this year after it got things back together and had a great season.
The only excitement for NBC comes from their not yet scheduled shows, which include Parks & Rec. Plus, there are two or three interesting new shows, based on who is involved:Â Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (created by Tina Fey), Bad Judge (produced by Will Ferrell), and Mr. Robinson (starring Craig Robinson).
The GistÂ is a new daily podcast on Slate. Hosted by Mike Pesca, who is also on Hang Up & Listen (the best sports podcast). This one isnâ€™t sports-focused, but more news and general interest. For example, on Thursday topics included the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls, improv rappers attempted to teach Mike how to rap, and a round up of news items related to urine. So yea, topics will vary, but they will all fall into informative or entertaining.
Hard to believe that itâ€™s college graduation time, this was graduation weekend at Penn State. That means that finals were last week. Business Insider covered some students who decided finals were worth â€™tailgatingâ€™Â (LW). My only issue is that it appears they actually â€˜GameDayâ€™dâ€™ finals with clever signs. So thumbs up to the students, but Business Insider, get your facts straight.
