NBC has the habit of sandwiching its least promising shows between hits. The thinking is that viewers are too lazy to get off the couch—or change the channel—between shows. But there's a lot one can do in the half hour between Friends and Will & Grace (make lunches, do a load of laundry, fire off a few e-mails, to name a few). The fact that the network pulled the series during the November sweeps indicates it has little confidence in its comedy about a sportscaster (Meyer) whose failed love life is discussed in fantasy conversations with sports stars.
