    It's great that they have those lofty goals. It would be even better if being funny was also a goal.

    I didn't think the pilot was very good, but I love the Goldbergs. I will give this 90s show more of a chance than I should. :)

    I will give it a shot. bringing back Laney, and dropping the family focus of Tim Meadows may make it a better show.

    Wow, I feel really surprised having watched (part of) that one episode. I love The Goldbergs a lot. But found that one episode to be really bad. I do like Tim Meadows, and always have. I'll probably give it a chance. I'd like to think that they will make a lot of changes.

    Maybe a spinoff isn't always a good idea. It's not like Cheers/Frasier and it seldom is, in the tv world.

    This spinoff show now has a premiere date per Facebook:
    Schooled premieres Wednesday January 9 8:30|7:30c

    So it looks like Lainey, Coach Mellor, and Principal Glascott are on this show. Wonder how they make that work. Does Lainey become a teacher? Is she still with Barry? At least it's not completely focused on Tim Meadows.

    I'm having a hard time finding the pitch show. Have been watching the series since the spring, caught up on almost all the shows, but for some strange reason I haven't been able to stream or record that one episode.

    Edit: found it on Hulu just now. Got the .99 monthly subscription thanks to TCF members.

    Looking at my last post in this thread, it appears I knew the show was picked up. Saying that, when I opened this thread today, I thought this show was canned.

    I'll still give it a couple more tries I guess.

    Lainey is a teacher. The new family from the pilot (Glasscott's sister and niece?) are out.
    The preview they showed last night didn't look any funnier than the pilot, though, so I think I'll pass.

    After the horrible pre-pilot on The Goldbergs, I was all against this. But, that trailer didn't look half bad. Now I am in for at least the first episode to see what is going on.

    Wow, looks like a total shift away from Tim Meadow's Mr. Glascott character and on to Lainey. Not that that's a bad decision necessarily but definitely different than what was originally shopped.

    It's all part of the master plan-- put out a knowingly awful pilot and a year later, hook people into watching because, well, it looks better than last time!

    Wow, Shooled is 1000% better than that terrible thing they tried to launch with last year. This show has me interested. That one, not so much.

    I'll give it a shot, since it definitely appears to be retooled from the soft pilot during The Goldbergs. Hopefully it's better than that pilot.

    And better than the commercial. The Goldbergs is both in your face and textured. I saw nothing of texture in the commercial.

    the star basketball player coach was trying to make a team player was Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons. They had an interview with Ryan and the real coach at the end.

    I was expecting it to suck but it wasn't half bad. Overall, I enjoyed it and I will continue to watch.

    Anyone watch The Goldbergs tonight? They did something I don't remember them ever actually doing. It surprised me a little bit but in a good way.

    They used scenes from The Wedding Singer movie and characters from The Goldbergs were inserted into the movie scenes.
