Meet the "TV Tourist" who vacations where her favorite shows are set
Catherine Baab-Muguira is such a big fan of The Office she traveled to Scranton, Pennsylvania for a vacation even though the NBC comedy was filmed in Los Angeles. "Some people play golf or rock-climb," she says. "I get a little obsessed with my favorite shows, sometimes so obsessed I even commit some light trespassing. I’d say this is one of the pleasures of our era: The golden age of TV has given us a golden age of TV tourism. You can visit sets and settings that take you closer to this bit of popular art you love, so that later you can re-watch it in a fresh way, newly immersed. In the last few years, I’ve gone to Utah Mormon country because of Big Love, the Florida Keys because of Bloodline; Monterey, California, because of Big Little Lies; and Breckenridge, Colorado because of CNN’s High Profits." She adds: "Visiting a filming location gives me an added layer of appreciation for the show itself—its mood, its characters’ motivations, its carefully cultivated atmosphere. When I return to these series, it feels like my viewing experience is suddenly in 360 degrees."

From Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Parks and Rec to The Good Place: An appreciation of the Michael Schur TV comedy
Schur has become one of the most beloved names in TV comedy with the shows he's created or co-created, says Carli Velocci. "The power of the Schur comedy is that, even while watching the Brooklyn Nine-Nine protagonist go to prison or The Good Place characters get tortured for all eternity, the audience rarely feels anxious or hopeless. These shows are beacons of light in a depressed TV and news landscape," says Velocci. "Schur, along with his crew of frequent writers, collaborators, and actors, have a propensity for unique, diverse, optimistic shows filled with characters that support each other while growing into better people. This approach has led to some of the most memorable titles of the past decade." ALSO: Check out Gina Rodriguez as Rosa's Brooklyn Nine-Nine love interest.

New Girl's Max Greenfield modeled Schmidt after Joey Tribbiani, Dwight Schrute and Barney Stinson
"My feeling was if you were going to have these two grounded characters (Jess and Nick) who were doing incredible work — just really, really good solid single cam acting — there needed to be the big explosive joke hitter," he says. "You needed that. Most shows have had them. Like, if you look at The Office, Rainn Wilson got that in the beginning. You had it with Neil Patrick Harris’ character (on How I Met Your Mother) and Joey (on Friends) and all these other characters like that — that sort of No. 3 that hit the punchlines. I was like, ‘Alright, I’m just gonna go big on this stuff.’ And it’s paid off.”

NBC boss on Brooklyn Nine-Nine: "It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too"

“Brooklyn is a show our company produces for Fox, so it’s a show that’s very close to us,” NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said of rescuing Brooklyn Nine-Nine during a conference call this morning, according to EW. “I’ve been saying to certain people in the press that if we knew Andy Samberg was going to be cast in that show, we never would have sold it to Fox. We’ve been watching it closely ever since. … We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox’s brand of comedy. It feels like it goes along shows like A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Superstore, and The Good Place. … It’s also one of the few comedies in recent years that does a robust international number, and it has a syndication upside, which a lot of shows don’t have anymore.” Greenblatt added that he loved that the fans were so vocal. "We were right there with them," he said. "We love when fans yell and scream on Twitter, but we hope that transfers and they watch the show.”
