A CLIP SHOW?!
Really? In 2010?
I wait all winter break for a clip show? Do they even make those anymore??
NBC is really dropping the ball this week – first the late night fiasco, then they pull this stunt with their highest rated scripted comedy.
Also, you’d think that a mere 4 days after Ricky Gervais skewered the show on the Golden Globes for jumping the shark, the clip show would have more clips from recent episodes to sort of dispel any rumors that the best episodes are behind them. By my count, there were about 5 shots from season 5 and only 1 from season 4. The rest were all from seasons 1 – 3.
Clip shows don’t get you NEW viewers. That’s like being new to a group of life-long friends and all they talk about are inside jokes from the old days. So who’s it for? The fans?
As a die hard fan, I can can tell you on behalf of the rest of us, we don’t need a clip show. We watch the DVD’s over and over again – we watch on Hulu, we watch on NBC.com, we watch on our phones, we have calendars and board games and posters. we quote the show every day.
We’re LIVING the clip show.
At least with a rerun we know what we’re in for. But when you get us excited about new stuff only to pull something like this…
NBC, you really Schruted it.
