Best Case/Worst Case: Truth Be Told

Best Case/Worst Case lays out possible scenarios for broadcast primetime TV seasons yet to premiere. Here's what's premiering tonight!

In a Nutshell: Because Undateable needed a companion on Friday, NBC introduces this multi-cam starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Vanessa Lachey. The show has undergone re-castings and a name change (formerly known as People are Talking).

Best Case: Hey, if the Friday comedy crowd showed up for Ken Jeong, maybe they'll show up for Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell? It's in a somewhat decent hammock spot, at least while Dateline is airing at 9:00, and is able to build on Undateable. 0.90.

Worst Case: If Undateable, a show that has at least showed some glimmers of decent ratings, bombed on Friday, what hope could a new, critically-savaged and completely buzz-free lead-out have? It is an unbelievable bomb, dropping at least half of Undateable at 0.35.

Likeliest: It's probably dangerous to say this, but I don't see Undateable getting that much worse than it was on premiere night. And in a higher-viewed slot with Dateline leading out, I don't think TBT can go but so much lower than Undateable. But don't get me wrong: it's still gonna fail. 0.65.
