A Very Special Message From COMMUNITY Star Joel McHale

Forget “More Colorful.” If NBC is really serious about raising brand awareness, they might wish to consider a slogan that’s far more befitting their current situation. Namely, “NBC: We Try Harder.”

How else to explain the fact that the Peacock network cleverly got this TV Addict to help promote their new Thursday night comedy COMMUNITY (Premiering Thursday September 17 at 9:30PM by the way) by having star Joel McHale give a personal shout out to the readers of this site.

Now that — to competing network marketing execs who may be reading this and think that inundating a blogger’s email box with an endless barrage of generic press releases — is how you get a TV Addict’s attention. Well, that and a walk-on role on SCRUBS would also totally work. Just, you know, in case you’re wondering.

    Did anybody else notice the orange “TGS comedy writers NEEDED” flyer in the background of his intro. I assume this is a reference the The Girlie Show from 30 Rock. Just thought I would point it out. What detail, what pizazz!
