A delightful surprise, Great News immediately becomes one of network television’s best sitcoms with its NBC premiere on Tuesday night. Conceived by Tracey Wigfield (30 Rock, The Mindy Project), it takes a familiar TV setting — behind the scenes in the making of a TV news show — and populates it with fresh characters, none of whom is fresher-in-every-sense than star Andrea Martin.

It’s a great premise, although some viewers will inevitably consider it in poor taste: Trial & Error is a sitcom about a man accused of murdering his wife. The man is a small-town poetry professor played by John Lithgow, who portrays fussy outrage superlatively — especially because it looks as though there’s a reasonable chance that this dithering eccentric may have done the terrible deed. Show creators Jeff Astrof and Matt Miller have recognized the untapped market for true-crime parody, and are shrewd enough to give us a suspect utterly unlike Making of a Murderer’s Steven Avery.

Sure, Woody (Woody Harrelson) had to take one for the team (he got caught in the crossfire when Gary walled up the Cheers bar), but in the end, the Cheers gang finally got vengeance over their longtime rival — and Gary’s got bulldozed.
