Are You More Likely to Tune In For Guest Stars?

Special guest stars are a dime a dozen these days, but that doesn't make 'em any less fun. Tonight, NBC's comedy lineup is back with new episodes (well, except for The Office) and it's chock-full of celebrity appearances. First we've got Jack Black on Community, followed by Will Arnett playing opposite his real-life wife Amy Poehler on Parks and Recreation. To cap it all off, we've got two episodes of 30 Rock to look forward to — one of which features James Franco.

It's always a treat to see big names adding some fun to my favorite shows, but what about when a star stops by a program that's not usually in your DVR schedule? I admittedly checked out a few episodes of General Hospital just for Franco, but Zooey Deschanel wasn't enough to get me to tune in to Bones. What's your take — are you more likely to watch a show if there's a special guest?

I'm usually less likely to tune into a show when they do a guest star.. they tend to be cheesier and more corny and less like their normal episodes.I second giving Bones a try.. im sooo addicted haha.

hahaha @mallorycurtis It was amazing! Thursday night on NBC is the only reason I don't cut my cable. Last night's guest stars were just bonus.

No -- either I watch the show or I don't, a small cameo or guest spot won't change that.
