The Good Place is revolutionizing the single-camera sitcom
“Within circles of people who talked a lot about TV, it used to be common sense that single-cam shows were the future," says Eric Thurm, "that obviously audiences couldn’t stomach the slower, consciously low-tech feel of multi-camera shows. But the straightforward, single-cam sitcom has largely given way critically to dramedies that don’t really fit into the sitcom form at all. The Big Bang Theory, the most popular sitcom on TV at the moment, is a multi-cam show. It’s pointless to compare which format is “better;” like any two distinct, but related genres, they have different structures that give rise to distinct strengths and weaknesses. But it is fair to say that The Good Place fully utilizes the single-cam format in a way few sitcoms have done to date.”

Johnny Galecki suggests The Big Bang Theory will likely end after Season 12, admits Roseanne revival negotiations were “delicate”
“The only manner in which the cast has discussed wrapping (The Big Bang Theory) has been that we’re all going to be very sad when that day comes,” Galecki said at the TV press tour “But I think at this point everyone’s very comfortable with 12 seasons being a good time to go home and see our families.” Aditionally, Galecki told TV Line that the negotiations to allow him to have a brief cameo on ABC Roseanne revival had to be “delicate” because it is a sitcom on a rival network. “It was probably most uncomfortable only to me,” he told TV Line, “because obviously Big Bang is my home and my family. But I probably wouldn’t have been on Big Bang if it hadn’t been for Roseanne. So there were the politics to be considerate about, but everyone was very supportive.”
