NBC Universal has not been shy about letting the world know that it has a lot riding on 'Joey,' the long-awaited 'Friends' spinoff starring LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani.
The reason: NBC has long been a dominant primetime player, especially among the 18 to 49 year-old viewers that advertisers will pay top dollar to reach.
For three years running NBC has been the top destination for these sought-after viewers, allowing it to pull in more ad dollars during the annual pre-season sales of commercial air time than any other network.

NBC is selling this show, about the people who make life-or-death national security decisions at the Pentagon, as being like a Jerry Bruckheimer movie (he's the executive producer), and it's not just a tagline for a poster.
NBC executives kept emphasizing how "fun" and "sexy" this show is, but a writing teacher long ago taught us that the key was to show, not tell, and the few minutes we saw didn't offer much in the "show" department.
If NBC was only going to pick one new comedy to premiere in the fall, they certainly made a good choice.
