I'll tune in just for Kristen Bell alone.
So will I. Doesn't hurt that it looks alright.

This premieres tonight on Global (7:30 pm EST) and NBC (10 pm EST) with two half hour episodes back to back with a third episode this week in its regular slot Thursday.
Global aired the Veronica Mars movie yesterday afternoon and unsurprisingly the Kristen Bell sitcom was heavily promoted during the Kristen Bell movie.

Looks dumb, plot is stupid. Many series in the past about an after life character. None of those worked out long run either. Kristin Bell has that annoying broadway musical voice.
If the glove don't fit you must acquit! #WINNING

I wasn't bowled over but compared to the Kevin James sitcom that aired after, it's high art

Miss the funny slide from Ted Danson's orientation video in NBC's new comedy? THR has you covered.

What does it take to get into "the Good Place" on NBC's new comedy The Good Place? Chances are you may have missed the amazingly funny slide in the pilot that explains the point system to get into the version of heaven presented on the latest series from Parks and Recreation creator Mike Schur.

I thought it was pretty good. Quite a lot happening here.

“These people might be good, but are they that much better than me?”

The rich girl only did good but obviously not for the right reasons. Ted Danson is like a kid who just got his probationary driver's license and keys to his dad's car. Chidi is an ethics teacher but is trying to be systematic on what is ethical and moral what with the who chalkboard and notes.

There's a lot here to expand and it should be fun.

It's been a good 9 episodes but all that momentum built up for the show could be lost as it goes on a winter hiatus returning in January with Superstore getting 2 episodes tonight.

Disappointed we have to wait that long. Disappointed Face

We only have 4 more episodes this season once the show returns January 5.

Not at all, creator/EP Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) assures us. In fact, the abbreviated 13-episode season was his plan from the start. “When I pitched the show to NBC, I felt pretty strongly it was kind of a big swing, and everything was gonna be really heavily serialized,” he tells TVLine. “It just felt like it made sense to keep that to a shorter season. And they very kindly and reasonably agreed with that.”
If this show gets a second season, expect it to be a similar length.

Missed a few episodes but caught the very last 30 minutes.
That was something.
I would like a second season but I'm OK if there isn't one.

Whoa ... that blew my mind.

Craziest thing I've ever seen on TV.
