'The Good Place'
NBC, September 19
The cast and creator alone make this one of the more promising new sitcoms: Parks & Recreation honcho Michael Schur and magnificent comic actors Kristen Bell and Ted Danson are working with a wonderful premise, following a mean-spirited libertine who dies and goes to heaven due to a clerical error. Naturally, she then finds herself frustrated by how nice everybody is. There's a tasty mix of sweet and sour here, in this comedy about what it really means to be "good." NM
