Looks like NBC's old Thursday block domination has moved to Fox on Tuesday nights (except for Dad's - just awful).

I liked Brooklyn 9-9. Good cast, writing and acting (Crews was excellent playing against type). Looking forward to more.

Saw this last night. It was ok but the supporting cast is nowhere near being on par with stuff like Parks, Community or some of the other good comedies.

But Samberg, his hot partner and Braugher are great.

Will give it a chance.

It did take Parks and Rec till the end of the first season to find it's way though too. The second season is a huge improvement over the first 5 episodes. I imagine they'll go through some growing pains here too though.

He is about as one-note as they come.

Ouch. This is pretty clunky. The only time I laughed out loud was the Fred Armisen cameo.

I'm not an Andy Samburg fan to begin with, but I think he's okay in small doses--he had to try and carry pretty much all the comedic weight here, and his partner seems to exist solely to be a cute female and foil for all his jokes. He's just not that good and the script isn't either.

I know it's a comedy but someone needs to teach Samberg how to properly hold a gun :D

I wouldn't blame someone for watching the first show and thinking it must not be a comedy..

I enjoyed it. It's pretty funny.

I liked the brief intro to each character. :)

Last night's ep was okay but I laughed more at the ABC Tuesday comedies.

That's extremely disappointing news. I really enjoy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. :-(

I would have gone with the headline "Brooklyn 9-9 Likely To Be 86ed"
