Season 1 "binge-a-thon" tonight at 9 PM ET on TBS

A cop show parody in the vein of Police Squad and The Naked Gun, created by Steve and Nancy Carell. Alan Sepinwall liked it, copping that while a lot of it is dad humor, the jokes are too frequent for any misses to linger, and they're helped by the actors (led by Rashida Jones) delivering them dead straight.

It starts tonight at 9 ET -- pretty much right now -- with a 25-hour commercial-free marathon of the 10-episode first season. The second season begins next week.

Let's see what the gently caress this is, then.

I REALLY liked that first episode. It feels like the modern update of Police Squad that I always hoped we'd get.

Really wish more people around here were watching. You gotta be willing to embrace the goofiness of it all but once you do it's god damned amazing.

Also, read the episode descriptions, starting with the pilot for maximum effect.

Only 10 episodes is weird!

It's the new normal for many cable and premium stations. It's a way for productions to be a little more cost effective, reduce workload for TV actors who want to do the occasional movie, and showrunners apparently appreciate the tighter parameters they have to tell their story.

Are we sure that season two starts next Monday? I've read just that in several places online, but my DVR guide says it's a re-airing of the Pilot, and I just saw an ad on TBS saying the same thing. They each refer to it as a "new" episode.

That's what Wikipedia said, but since they failed to announce a return date I suspect you're right.
