Night Court Revival (Peacock)
Synopsis: The eternally optimistic Abby Stone follows in the footsteps of her revered late father, Judge Harry Stone, as she takes on the challenge of overseeing the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court. Abby always sees the best in people and her passion for justice is undeniable. In her quest to bring order and dignity to the court and reign in its colorful crew of oddballs, she enlists former night court district attorney Dan Fielding to serve as the court’s public defender. Still exceedingly self-confident, Fielding must adjust to a new boss and a new job – defending the downtrodden. And, beneath his arrogant demeanor, there is an empathetic side to Fielding that Abby is determined to unearth.
They both must contend with Olivia, the court’s officious assistant district attorney. Driven and ambitious, she views the night court as a stepping stone on her way to bigger things. Neil is the court’s neurotic clerk who loved that his job came with low expectations – that is, until a new idealistic judge showed up looking to push him out of his comfort zone. Rounding out the staff is Donna “Gurgs” Gurganos, the night court’s sharp-witted bailiff. Gurgs takes her job very seriously and is fiercely protective of her night court colleagues.
Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)
Synopsis: In this comedy from executive producers Jason Sudeikis and Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Whiskey Cavalier, Cougar Town), Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live, We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses films) stars as Ted Lasso, an idealistic all-American football coach hired to manage an English football club – despite having no soccer coaching experience at all. Based on the beloved character Sudeikis made famous online, Ted Lasso is the first television series that Sudeikis has signed on to star as a series regular since Saturday Night Live. Produced by Doozer Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, the comedy series is also executive produced by Jeff Ingold.
Frasier (Peacock & Paramount+)
Synopsis: Comedy series set in Seattle, WA, which chronicles the lives of an eloquently pompous radio show host Dr. Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer), his brazen radio producer Roz (Peri Gilpin), his competitive, high-brow brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce), their crotchety father Martin (John Mahoney) and his quirky live-in nurse Daphne (Jane Leeves).
Cheers (Hulu, Peacock & Paramount+)
Synopsis: Wander in… pull up a stool… and make yourself at home “where everybody knows your name.” Ted Danson stars as Sam Malone, former relief-pitcher for the Boston Red Sox turned sober saloon owner of a popular neighborhood spot. From snooty, erudite Diane (Shelly Long)—a chronic academic forced to become a waitress when her fiancé dumps her—to ruthless corporate careerist Rebecca Howe (Kirstie Alley)—relegated to riding herd over this unruly bunch—Sam remains a (somewhat) calming presence. Add to the mix wise-cracking Carla (Rhea Perlman), suds-slurping regular Norm (George Wendt), know-it-all letter carrier Cliff (John Ratzenberger), gentle-spirited Coach (Nicholas Colasanto), and freelance shrink Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) and you’re all set to raise a glass to the legendary, Emmy Award-winning series.

Created by Primetime Emmy® Award winners Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, SNL), and featuring a stellar ensemble cast, Parks and Recreation is a “genuinely funny comedy” (Daniel Carlson, Hollywood Reporter) about bureaucracy, hope and America at the dawn of the Obama age.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Peacock)

Synopsis: A fast-paced and fun-filled series relating the antics of a mobile army surgical hospital crew during the Korean war. They are basically dedicated surgeons who turn to humor as relief from the front-line operating room.
