In The Good Place, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) is a woman who dies and goes to the titular afterlife, a quaint paradise that is almost perfect — except for the fact Eleanor is a terrible person who has arrived there by mistake. It's an unusual plot for a primetime sitcom, even more so since The Good Place also functions as a stealthy class on morality (well, not that stealthy, as one of the characters is literally a professor of ethics). But what's really fascinating is how entertaining the show still manages to be.

NBC just put a lot of faith in DC's foray into the world of superhero comedy — Powerless, the long-in-the-works show about an insurance company working in the DC Comics universe. The show has received a full series order on the network, and to celebrate, DC released the first pictures from the show's pilot last week, which stars Vanessa Hudgens as Emily Locke, an insurance adjuster with a speciality in helping out average people affected by the wanton destruction of superhero fights.

Charles and Ray Eames were the archetypal design power couple, who each brought their own distinct kind of creative genius to the personal and professional partnership. When they visited NBC's daytime Home show in 1956 to debut their (now-iconic) eponymous lounge, Charles introduced themselves thusly: "Ray is a painter. I am an architect." Host Arlene Francis has a slightly different take: "Almost always when there is a successful man, there is a very interesting and able woman behind him."

Those hoping for the debut of Mr Egypt or Intensive Karen may have gotten their wishes granted, with NBC calling it quits on sitcom Community after five seasons. Despite losing its way in earlier seasons, the latest block of 13 episodes were quality, mostly thanks to creator Dan Harmon coming back on board. Sadly, it wasn't enough to right the ship.

Maybe one night, as you scuttled darkly across the fringes of the internet, you came across a site like CocoaJuggs.net. Or LuvInaBarnyard.org. Maybe even PrisonMate.net. But when you clicked, you were met not with the lurid promises of the URL, but rather by the smiling faces of SNL cast members. Had you discovered a wormhole in the web? Nah. Just another pervy-sounding NBC property.
