News & Interviews for Great News: Season 2
What sets Great News apart - aside from the quality of its writing and its unsung ensemble - is its uncommon sweetness.
It's a funny show, but it's working through some growing pains, trying to find its voice and figure out its cast chemistry, which, to be fair, it took 30 Rock about a season to do as well.
There are enough laughs to match the talent involved. The well-utilized cast is charming, the writing a bit sharper, and, oddly enough, the arcs feel more original.
While the writing has its moments of brilliance, as a whole the show feels stagnant.
Most things get significantly better when you add Tina Fey to them. So it makes sense that adding the 30 Rock alum to the Season 2 cast of NBC's Great News takes an already-fun sitcom and elevates it about a bazillion notches.
