Fall TV 2010, NBC: Another Spin-off, Outsourced Jobs, and an Event

Yesterday we took on CBS’s fall lineup (and Fox right here) and the promise (or lack thereof) it brings to this fall’s tv season. Today, let’s take on NBC. With 7 new shows slated to hit the mini-screen (click here for the fall schedule) and one old favorite going retro, does NBC have what it takes to dig themselves out of the ratings hole they’ve been in recently? Bringing back some favorites like the Law & Order franchise (adding one more too), fan favorites Chuck and Parenthood, reality like The Biggest Loser and sitcoms like The Office and 30 Rock, NBC could (note the emphasis) put themselves back in the running.

“The Big C”… get your mind out of the gutter!

[singlepic id=305 w=320 h=240 float=left]What would you do if you learned you had a year, maybe 18 months to live?  A liberating, philosophical question indeed, and one that was posed in a new Showtime series, “The Big C,”  Starring Laura Linney, whose character has been told just that.

The story begins after: Linney’s “Cathy Jamison” has learned of her fatal diagnosis.  “Cathy” a married high school teacher in Minnesota — has been informed she has Stage IV melanoma and has decided to forgo aggressive treatment that, at best, would buy her only a little more time.  Instead, she sets out to make the most of what life she has left.

Cathy decides to go it alone and not tell anyone of her condition — including her husband played by Oliver Platt, who she kicked to the curb; and son played by Gabriel Basso, both of whom seriously do not understand her as a wife, mother or person.  Her husband who seems to be stuck in a “Panesque” syndrome and her son who is in serious need of a reality check, as he apparently has never met discipline he couldn’t crack.   We also get the slightly awkward exchanges between “Cathy” and her doctor (Reid Scott), the one person to whom she can confide as well as a pseudo love interest, whereby she later learns that she was his first [fatal diagnosis] and she offhandedly proclaims that “you always remember your first” something she hadn’t been in a very long time.
