NBC Crowdsources the Comedy News With New Series Common Sense


Sorry, Common. Looks like you're going to need a new name for that reboot of Medium you've had your heart set on. On Tuesday, NBC announced a six-episode order for Common Sense, a new comedy show in which "real" people weigh in on current events. According to the network's press release, "a cast of reoccurring characters" will discuss the news of the week, transporting viewers to locations around the country where they'll interview regular Americans for their honest, and honestly hilarious, opinions. How they all keep themselves from falling to the ground, wailing and gnashing their teeth in anxiety and despair upon opening any newspaper seems like an insight worth tuning in for!
