NBC’s Long-Delayed Love Bites Premieres Tonight


NBC ordered up Love Bites over a year ago, but it’s just now making it to air tonight at 10pm. What happened? Well, there was some backstage drama, including the original lead and showrunner being shown the door, and then NBC was purchased by Comcast, which made things more complicated. But tonight is the night! What to expect? Well, it’s an “anthology series,” meaning each episode will feature a few vignettes linked thematically rather than one overarching story. It’s also a romantic comedy, so expect a lot of scenes of dates and also of breakups. At this point, it’ll have to do pretty well to have a shot at getting picked up again, as this is classic burning-off-the-episodes territory. But hey, let’s keep an open mind, OK?
