Description: From Executive Producer Michael Schur (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Master of None”) comes a smart, unique new comedy about what makes a good person. The show follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell, “House of Lies,” “Veronica Mars”), an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife and, thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead of the Bad Place, which is definitely where she belongs. While hiding in plain sight from Michael (Ted Danson, “CSI,” “Cheers”), the wise architect of the Good Place (who doesn’t know he’s made a mistake), she’s determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome (or, at least, the pretty good) person within.

Note: NBC only ordered a total of thirteen episodes for this show’s first season but it is more expensive to produce than the typical sitcom.
Status: (Updated 11/14/16) This show’s numbers are below its network’s average, but it is right in line with NBC’s other Thursday shows. The Good Place is certainly more expensive to produce than the standard 30 minute sitcom because of its special effects and because its high-profile leads (Ted Danson and Kristen Bell) likely take home a decent paycheck, so I don’t know if NBC is expecting higher numbers from it. It is currently on hiatus until January.
