After the Bosom Buddies-style nightmare that was Work It, there was some fear that NBC's new sitcom Best Friends Forever would be Three's Company: 2012. Given that the series revolves around two best female friends living with a male roommate, these reservations were not initially unwarranted, but after watching BFF's pilot, I'm happy to report the sitcom is a whole 'nother show and, unexpectedly, refreshingly funny.
So much for no stunt casting this season on Glee.
So this network upfront actually broke some news, albeit unsurprising news that no one really cared about, but news nonetheless. Towards the end of the very lengthy two hour presentation, Donald Trump came out to announce that he was going to continue making money on The Celebrity Apprentice and not take a run at the presidency. He made it sound like he was doing us a favor, but I cover entertainment television, so having him stick around on reality TV isn't really helping me at all.
Aside from that, the rest of the presentation was fairly typical, and filled with all the NBC executives reminding us as frequently as possible that The Voice is a big success. I tried keeping count of how often they mentioned the show's name, but they worked it in so seamlessly to nearly every segment that it was almost impossible. And just when I thought they couldn't mention it one more time, they had Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo come out at the end of the presentation to sing. Fortunately, I was already heading out the door at that point.
