Matthew Perry: Nobody Knew If Go On Was Going to Work

Matthew Perry

Go On was one of the first three new shows to earn a full-season pickup this fall, and its success comes as big of a surprise to the cast and crew as it may anyone else.

"Nobody knew whether it was going to work," Matthew Perry told reporters on a conference call. "Nobody knew, really, whether people were going to laugh at these sad situations."

The show's premise reads more like a drama than a comedy: Sportscaster Ryan King (Perry) attends group therapy to deal with his wife's death. But Perry believes the series — or more specifically, creator/executive producer Scott Silveri, with whom he worked on Friends — has managed to find ...

Summer TV Review: A Go On Sneak, Dallas Finale

Matthew Perry

Maybe you've heard lately — possibly in these last two weeks of Olympics force-feeding — that NBC has some new shows coming this fall. One of them starring an old Friend who's fallen on hard sitcom times. (Remember Mr. Sunshine? No?)

Not content to merely barrage us with endless promos and teasers during the Olympics, NBC has now decided to sneak-peek entire pilots of two of its new comedies, commercial-free, beginning tonight with Go On (11/10c), an uneasy collision of snark and sentiment that feels like Community rebooted as a Dear John clone. (Helps if you have a long memory for NBC sitcomedy.)

Revolution

It would be nice to hope, as NBC does, that the ratings magnet of the Summer Olympics, opening Friday, will somehow magically transform the network's sagging fortunes with its "incredible promotional platform" (as NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt put it). To that end, NBC will sneak-peek two of its new comedies with commercial-free premieres on pivotal nights of the games, and tease a high-profile new drama on another. Much of NBC's fall lineup will launch ahead of the official premiere week in late September, in hopes of capitalizing on the momentum the Olympics provides.

Go On's Matthew Perry: My Characters Have Gotten Nicer

Matthew Perry

Go On is Matthew Perry's third post-Friends TV project, but there's something different about this show from his previous ones.

"In my efforts to have a TV show and come back, the characters have progressively gotten nicer," Perry told reporters Tuesday at NBC's Television Critics Association fall TV previews. "The Showtime show [End of Steve, which was not picked up in 2008] was about a terrible guy, and I thought it was genius. Everybody went, 'I don't wanna watch that.' Mr. Sunshine, he was sort of down and out. And now this guy is a nicer, more well-intended guy. ... I don't know why that is, but you ...
