NBC’s “The Good Place” is in a good place.
The freshman sitcom premiered on Monday to solid ratings, attracting the best ratings for a new Peacock comedy since 2012, and has now settled into its regular Thursday night timeslot.
Earlier this summer, we moderated the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the show, which featured a lively discussion with stars Ted Danson and Kristen Bell, as well as creator Mike Schur and director Drew Goddard. Listen to that interview below, as part of this week’s episode of IndieWire’s tune-in TV podcast, “Turn It On.”
Also in the Sept. 22, 2016 episode: A roundup of the week’s premieres; IndieWire senior editor Hanh Nguyen’s thoughts on why “Game of Thrones'” new Emmy record may hold; and IndieWire TV critic Ben Travers’ take on ABC’s new Minnie Driver comedy “Speechless.”
IndieWire’s “TURN IT ON with Michael Schneider” is a weekly dive into what’s new and what’s now in TV – no matter what you’re watching or where you’re watching it. Each episode features interviews with producers, reviews, essays on the latest buzz and trends, plus a roundup of what’s premiering and what’s returning over the coming week. With an enormous amount of choices overwhelming even the most sophisticated viewer, “TURN IT ON” is a must-listen for TV fans looking to make sense of what to watch and where to watch it.
