Looking forward to it next Thursday. Hope Rashida Jones has a decent part. Too hot.

I'm pretty confident that this will be better than the Office
Which Office do you mean? There's no chance that this beats The Office circa season 1-3. It's pretty much already beat seasons 4-5 though regardless of how it turns out.

I've yet to see many previews for this show but the premise is a bit strange. I can't see how they're going to get 4-5 seasons out of it. They would've been better off pitching this show to HBO where they won't be pressured by an NBC-like network to squeeze the life out of it.

I'll watch, because Poehler can be funny... but it essentially looks as if she's going to be a female version of Michael. So I don't know how long I can handle that before it gets irritating.

This is dead-on, but I will give this show a fair shot.

P.S. Regular season opener on Sunday!

Excited to see Aziz Ansari, his stand up and television roles are almost always hilarious. Also, Rashida Jones... I'll tune it.

Very low expectations, it can only meet or exceed them.

the one promo they show for this over and over and over made me laugh the first couple times i saw it, so i'll probably check it out. it's smart that they sandwiched it in between two new episodes of the office to get people to check it out

It's not. It was going to be, but they reconfigured it.
