‘Friends’ alum Matthew Perry is looking for another hit on NBC with ‘Go On,’ his latest series attempt after the early deaths of his previous series ‘Mr. Sunshine’ and ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.’
This time, Perry is playing a sportscaster who joins a support group after suffering a grave personal loss and quickly becomes involved with all the colorful personalities there.
The series was created by writer Scott Silveri, who previously wrote for ‘Friends.’ TV comedy director Todd Holland (‘Malcolm in the Middle’) directed the pilot. It also stars Julie White, Laura Benanti, Suzy Nakamura, Allison Miller, Khary Payton and Tyler James Williams.
‘Go On’ airs Tuesday at 9 p.m.
Animals doing cute things seems to be the name of the game in ‘Animal Practice,’ another NBC comedy starring ‘Weeds’’ Justin Kirk as a wacky doctor in an animal hospital.
Tyler Labine, formerly of ‘Reaper’ and ‘Sons of Tucson,’ also stars along with Bobby Lee, Kym Whitley and Betsy Sodaro.
‘Animal Practice’ airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
