What NBC Show Should Air After the Super Bowl?

Back in the Spring, NBC announced it would air its brand-new Office spinoff after the Super Bowl in February. Well, this week we heard that there is no Office spinoff (yet), and the show that took its place in NBC's priority list, starring Amy Poehler, won't be ready to air in that prime slot.

So, what's NBC to do? The Office might be an obvious pick, but as Entertainment Weekly reports, 30 Rock might also be angling for the spot. The network has a bunch of new shows ready to premiere this Fall; maybe NBC could boost one of them. Heroes is also looking to get its mojo back, and a little part of me would love to see something like Chuck get that kind of mass exposure. And oh, there's also that show with football players that's supposed to return in February anyway.

What do you think should air after the Super Bowl?

I dont watch any of these shows but after watching football what can be better than even MORE football?? I just think Friday Night Lights matches the whole Super Bowl theme.

The Office or My Name is Earl. I was orginally going to vote "Friday Night Lights" (which I love) however after watching the Super Bowl I doubt people will be sober enough or ready to watch a drama. So I voted for comedy.

I am the only one who picked Earl?! I am such a late joiner to that show but I love it

It would really help FNL pick up new viewers - it's such a great show!

Friday Night Lights is really the best show on the list, and exposing it to that kind of audience could only help it.

I chose Friday Night Lights because I'd love to see it get that extra boost. And I would imagine a lot of people who watch the Super Bowl would enjoy a show about high school football in Texas.

I never really understood the hype about The Office... I'd say Heroes, but after the Superbowl, I'm usually good and drunk and not interested in watching anything serious.

FNL would be a great post superbowl pick, and I think it would be sure to gain some extra viewers because of it!

as much as i want FNL to get as much glory as possible ... i think "the office" is probably the best bet.

After watching the Superbowl, I think most people don't want to immediately jump back into serious tv. The Office ftw!
