These days I wonder if the appeal of network TV to showrunners is as much about finding creative ways to circumvent the still prudish and risk-averse constraints imposed by standards and practises (i.e. the censors and suits) as it is about reaching a potentially huge audience.

If you haven’t seen it, “Abbott Elementary” is quite good. We watched the first season as a family (kids are 11 and 7) and everyone really enjoyed it and looked forward to it each week. Very much looking forward to what they do next season. :slight_smile:

Side note: “Run the Burbs” was pretty dang good, too. These two shows were our “Friday night pizza and TV” schedule for the past few months.
