NBC using America’s Got Talent in order to launch I Feel Bad; will it work?

I Feel BadWhile we’re not sure that we would classify today the official start of the fall season, there are still some notable things happening. After all, today marks the first day that a fall series is going to premiere. NBC is putting the first two episodes of their comedy I Feel Bad on following America’s Got Talent in order to try and get it some extra viewers.

Will this move work? Well, it’s smart to try given that this is a show that doesn’t necessarily have a ton of star power, other than executive producer Amy Poehler behind the scenes, and it needs a little more attention. The series stars Sarayu Blue and Paul Adelstein, and you can see the official synopsis for it below:

Emet is the perfect mom, boss, wife, friend and daughter. OK, she’s not perfect. In fact, she’s just figuring it out like the rest of us. Sure, she feels bad when she has a sexy dream about someone other than her husband, or when she pretends not to know her kids when they misbehave in public, or when she uses her staff to help solve personal problems. But that’s OK, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly. From executive producer Amy Poehler comes a modern comedy about being perfectly OK with being imperfect.

Should you watch I Feel Bad? That depends on what sort of television you enjoy. This is a personal, almost neurotic comedy about parenting, marriage, and day-to-day insecurities. If you’re looking for a twist on the classic family-comedy mold, this could be for you — though we do also think that it hits the theme of its title a little bit harder than it really needs to. Reviews for the show have been mixed so far, but one of the things that we certainly know with a comedy like this is that they often need time — say, a few episodes — to really figure out how good they are. There typically tends to only be a few different shows a year that are actually good from start to finish – not everything can be The Office.

You can watch the first five minutes of I Feel Bad below, just in case you do want to get some sort of sense of what’s ahead.
