    In addition to the FCC indirectly forcing an excess of crime and medical shows to facilitate otherwise fine-able mature subject matter, and excessive consolidation towards scalable, risk-averse business models and cross-platform synergies, I blame reality television. When you go from taking bets on Fox, Seinfeld, Harrelson, Danson and Carrell to eating cheese mold and sticking fat people on truck scales to play catch up, you lose your compass.

    The sad thing is that NBC has the only worth while watching basic Network sitcom that still even exists (Parks and Rec). Too many morons are watching channels like CBS that write for the dumbest of the dumb in this country

    Network tv is dead anyway, has been for a while

    I wonder what would be the ratings if they just replay "Seinfeld" and "Friend".

    I haven't watched NBC's Thursday lineup since the last season of The Office. I loved that show and I'd hang around before and after to watch Community, Parks and Rec, and even that dumpster fire of a show about the call center in India. Now that The Office is gone I haven't tuned in on Thursday nights since.

    I'm old enough to feel somewhat nostalgically sad about this :)

    Is Brooklyn 99 considered a sitcom? I'll watch that show every now and then on Fox and laugh.

    Other than that, I don't watch comedies on tv anymore.

    I hate them moving The Blacklist to Thursdays.

    I liked Community, but other than that, I couldn't tell you the last network comedy I watched regularly. Or Drama. Or Reality. I guess I just don't watch network TV anymore. I tend to like the comedies on IFC. Comedy Bang Bang, Birthday Boys, Portlandia, Garfunkel and Oates.

    The advent of the DVR and streaming services was sure to kill off non-serialized programs first.

    How do the execs let something like Veep go to HBO? They should just syndicate that and air it, pretend it's new. America doesn't know.

    Literally the only show I have to watch live is Game of Thrones. I'll occasionally catch Arrow or Agents of Shield live, but for the most part I record everything.

    I'm not sure how they are gonna work it out, but commercial driven TV shows are going the way of the dodo.

    I hope this is the last season of Parks and Rec because it feels like NBC has no idea what to do with it. Delayed premieres, moving time slots, carousel of neighboring shows, just give me the last season full of April and good feelings and end it.
