NBC Sets Parenthood Debut for March 1
(NBCU News Release)
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 14, 2009 --- NBC revealed its mid-season and post-Winter Olympics schedule today as the new drama "Parenthood" debuts Monday, March 1 (9-10 p.m. ET) while "The Marriage Ref," a hilarious comedy panel series from Jerry Seinfeld about marriage, premieres on Sundays (8-9 p.m. ET) beginning March 14.
In addition, "The Celebrity Apprentice" returns in its third installment with an all-star lineup of celebrity candidates on Sunday, March 14 (9-11 p.m. ET). Likewise, the ninth edition of the popular "The Biggest Loser" kicks off on Tuesday, January 5 (8-10 p.m. ET) with 11 family teams of two ready to transform their bodies, their health and ultimately their lives. Other January programming includes "The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards" hosted by Ricky Gervais on Sunday, January 17 (8-11 p.m. ET) and "The AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships" on Saturday and Sunday, January 23-24 (9-11 p.m. ET).
"Parenthood," from Oscar winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer along with fellow executive producers Jason Katims ("Friday Night Lights") and David Nevins, is inspired by the box-office hit of the same name and features a star-studded cast. The series assumes the Monday (9-10 p.m. ET) time slot beginning March 1 following the season finale of "Heroes" on Monday, February 8 and NBC Universal's exclusive coverage of the Winter Olympics from February 12-28. "Chuck," as previously announced, will return with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, January 10 (9-11 p.m. ET) before moving to its regular day and time Monday, January 11 (8-9 p.m. ET).

So did anyone else watch the tonight? What'd you think?
After NBC over-hyping it during the olympics, I decided to check it out. The previews actually looked alright to me, and I thought the show was pretty decent. Some humor, but serious enough to be interesting. They didn't seem to go too much into the back story of all of the family members, but I assume we'll find out more about them as the series continues.

I wasn't too impressed. Seems to just be a way to combat Modern Family, which I find way better

I thought it was terrible. But I don't think I'm the target audience.

All I could think of while watching was Brothers and Sisters... way over the top family drama. I was expecting something more Modern Family-like.
