    During the late 2000s after Friends ended, the Thursday night lineup’s ratings went downhill and after the lineup was replace by drama by the end of the early 2010s, I need to ask everyone what NBC needs in order to bring it back. The show “Undateable” has been well-received recently and I feel that more great comedy-oriented shows should make a comeback on NBC. There are great comedy writers out there that can make a sitcom just as good as “Friends” or “Seinfeld”, but it’s all up to the critics and the generally public so I ask you all what NBC needs to relaunch “Must See TV.

    For me, during the 90’s, Must See TV was Martin, Living Single, and New York Undercover on FOX!!!

    Well the first thing they need to do is not trust Undateable to kickstart that return. The show is awful, it’s a guilty pleasure for me, thursdays are way low on comedy so what the hell I watched it and last summer it was the same thing, so why not?, but it’s truly a bad show. And now with the decision of doing all the episodes live as if their first live episode was such a great thing (it wasn’t), I don’t know how well it’s going to go.

    I don’t think Must See TV is going to come back if all they have to offer is canceled shows, ready to be canceled shows or Undatable.

    meh, you can barely string together a lineup of good sitcoms from all 4 networks combined.

    Anything is possible. It can happen again. We have yet to see Truth Be Told starring Mark-Paul. NBC just needs to find incredible writers, find the right audience and maybe they can slowly be successful in their comedies again, because One Big Happy was horrible.

    Must-See TV was a fantastic, once in a lifetime era for NBC. I don’t think we’ll ever see a line-up of programming so massively capture the attention of the viewing public.   I just think TV serves a different purpose now, and the way people watch TV now doesn’t lend itself to a promotion like MSTV being so massively popular. 

    I also think the fact we have so few comedies on TV right now is another nail in this coffin.

    NBC’s “Must See TV” (1982-2004) was one of television’s best eras of all time. I hope something like that happens again. It probably won’t, but a guy can dream.

    I think the closest thing I have to a night of must-see tv is Wednesday nights on ABC. The Middle-The Goldbergs-Modern Family-Blackish is a fantastic combo. I can do a full 2 hour sitting on one network, and that’s a rarity nowadays unless it’s Sports.

    I knew this was going to happen. Must See TV is back with Superstore, The Good Place, Will & Grace, and Great News. It’s a good start.

    I guarantee you that one of the shows will be nominated for an Emmy.

    Will & Grace is practically Emmy royalty, and with the same cast, same writers, and even same director! They will do very well at the Emmys! I was little disappointed about NBCs drama side for the upcoming year, there doesn’t seem to be anthor This is Us in the mix!

    Must See TV 2017-18 season:
    08:00 Superstore
    08:30 The Good Place
    09:00 Will & Grace
    09:30 Great News
    10:00 Chicago Fire

    It all starts September 28, 2017.

    It’s going to be a good season for television though I would have preferred This Is Us on Thursdays at 10.

    Asuming Will & Grace ends up being good, that could definitely be the return of Must See Tv. Of course they should’ve put This is Us there to help out. It won’t be a ratings bonanza like it once was, since three of those shows are basically the same as 30 Rock, The Office, Parks and Community, and the audience has made it clear that they won’t go to NBC to make those type of shows huge hits. It only on ABC (wednesdays).

    But in terms of quality, it could definitely be back like I don’t know 7-8 years ago.
