Grey's Anatomy: Notes from the Nurse's Station and Overheard at the Emerald City BarDid you catch the season premiere of 30 Rock on NBC last night? If not, you have a couple of chances tonight on Bravo to get a look at what might be the best comedy to debut this fall so far. That isn’t saying much though as all the comedies to premiere already have been pretty bad. Happy Hour and ‘Til Death on FOX are both really bad, The Class on CBS has yet to be funny at all and Help Me Help You on ABC is a giant waste of time. So many comedies yet so few laughs, what do you think of the crop of comedies so far this fall?

Prime Picks

My Name Is Earl (NBC): New. Earl once sabotaged a cat show so Joy would win and makes up for it by returning a cat to its owner.
The Office (NBC): New. They find out that a former regional manager has died and Michael tries to help everyone through the grieving process.
