    The series finale of The Good Place will air on Thursday, January 30 at 8:30 pm Eastern on NBC. This is a 90-minute episode, but the guide has only the first 30 minutes (8:30-9:00) as the episode followed by two 30-minute blocks of To Be Announced. My season pass is set to record only the first 30 minutes. Not relying on Rovi to get this right, I have extended the recording to encompass the extra hour. This will also retain the episode’s metadata.

    I believe it's a 60-minute episode followed by a 30-minute after-show...

    I show 30 minutes and two 30 minute TBA at this time (so does CBS Interactive). TitanTV has a 90 minute program, as does Gracenote. Gracenote (zap2it.com) has a funny description.

    I don't understand the after show. I love this show, but after shows should be left for things like Friends, or Cheers, or Seinfeld. This doesn't rise to that.

    I'm sure you mean "this doesn't sink to that." ;)

    Isn't a season ending but a end of the show, I believe.

    My guide for that day on the NBC station just says "Upcoming: Take 5" from 4pm on, I don't know when it stops. I'm assuming that just means they don't have the program data entered yet.

    My TiVo/Comcast guide shows the 30 minutes, plus the two TBA segments after. On DirecTV, it's correct, with a 90 minute block of The Good Place.

    I think that falls into the category of "mailing it in". :D

    It reminds me of the loglines The Magicians always uses, which are brief and vague. (E.g. last week: "Penny and Julia go stargazing; Eliot and Margo forget a sandwich.")

    This is the description I am seeing in multiple guides that are independent from each other. I have to assume that is what NBC sent out.

    And I assume it was written by Neutral Janet.

    meh. I assume you mean you think it’s worse than those shows. 1) I think is the best of the four, certainly better than the first two. 2) why? Makes sense to do them for most anything if there’s something interesting to talk about.

    speaking of which, the best after shows I’ve ever seen were Kevin Smith’s two for Crisis on Infinite Earths back in December. Really fun and well conceived.

    I adore Janet.

    And Evil Janet is the most utterly pointless thing ever

    I so hope to see that show eventually. I’m a gigantic fan of Sera Gamble circa Supernatural, so...

    No, I don't think it's worse than those shows. Those shows are much, much bigger. Those shows ending were cultural events deserving of after shows to discuss their impact on society. I'm sorry, but considering the number of people I talk to who don't watch The Good Place (pretty much everyone), this show has no impact on society.

    Maybe not to society, but it does have an impact to those that watch it. It is also a critical darling. And NBC loves this show.

    All those things to me say it is absolutely deserving of an after show wrap up.

    And who is anyone to say if a show deserves it or not? If the network wants to put one on, with all the cost and logistics associated with putting one on, it’s their prerogative. To paraphrase Bill Munny in Unforgiven, “deserves got nuthin to do with it.”
