(Christian Science Monitor) – This spring, NBC, home of such classic comedies as “Cheers” and “Seinfeld,” got the public’s attention when it announced that it would only have two comedies on its slate for this coming fall.

More comedies would be arriving in the spring, but only the show “Undateable” and a new program titled “Truth Be Told” will be looking for laughs on NBC in the autumn, according to the network. And “Truth” is airing on Fridays, regarded in the TV world as a less prestigious time than during the week.

However, a new comedy has debuted on NBC this month – and it’s being called “promising” by some critics.

“The Carmichael Show” stars Jerrod Carmichael, a stand-up comic, as a character of the same name who lives with his girlfriend Maxine (Amber West), while actors David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine, and Lil Rel Howery play Jerrod’s parents and brother.
