*reads thread, sighs*

Ok, apparently I'm the only one brave enough to say it...

In a TV lineup filled with tired reality shows and the same cop/investigative drama in a dozen iterations, Parenthood is, hands down, the best hour-long drama on network TV today. Undeniably well written, well acted, and compelling.

I'm pretty confident that I'm not the only one here who feels that way, although I may be the only one with enough cojones to turn in my man card and admit it.

Silly Craig. Don't you know NBC is a democrat station and your tv show is aimed at republicans? Obviously it always comes down to politics (his subtext whenever he's crying about something).

/Modern Family and Raising Hope kill parenthood in the balls.

The show is good for what it is, and considering NBC has nothing other than the NFL and The Voice to bring back next year, the show should be pretty safe to be back... someone needed to let him know that so he didn't go off on his rant.

Maybe your shiatty show only appeals to born with a silver spoon in their mouth uber yuppies. What the fark do rich spoiled assholes know about raising kids, aside from doping them up with anti depressants.

You're a shiatty actor, on a shiatty show, on a shiatty network and you believe stupid shiatty things. Kill yourself.

Cymbal: Parenthood is a great show, if you are a MILF enthusiast. Which I happen to be.

If you're talking about Lauren Graham or Erika Christensen, neither are moms in reality.

/mmmm, Erika
//mmm Lauren

Why does this surprise anyone?  NBC doesn't know how to promote and build quality shows anymore.

Eh, he gets a lifetime pass from me for his work on the Poltergeist series, the first one in particular.

But the bottom line is that actors are stupid. Some are fancy-talking stupid (Ashley Judd), some are pompous ass stupid (Sean Penn), some are ironically non-self-aware stupid (CT Nelson), but they're all dopes.

They don't need them no book-larnin'! They's pretty and can read a script some!

I watched that show for about one season, I've never seen a more dysfunctional family in my life, these people fight over every damn pathetic little thing on that show. I'm not talking about some minor bickering back and forth, I'm talking top of the lungs screaming, door slamming, grudge match shiat. Judging by the comments people would make about it on Hulu, I guess the fans of the show are just as dysfunctional too. I feel sorry for anyone who thinks that's what family life is supposed to be like.

"There are all these people responding to our show and NBC is completely out of it," Nelson told ET. "They don't promo the show, you don't see anything about it out there."

He's right.  My reaction to the headline was "WTF is Parenthood?"

Subby quoting Craig T Nelson:  "I've been on food stamps and welfare -- did anyone help me out? NO

Sixty One hundred percent of the time, this is funny every time.

I, for one, was completely unaware that that show was still on the air, so maybe he's onto something.

The ad hominem against CTN aside, NBC is pretty horrible at promoting any show that's not "The Office" or "The Voice".

Pouts a limited appeal show with a huge expensive cast.
