A Look Back At Thursday NBC Comedies Of Late

Thursday nights on NBC: They defined the second half of the nineties as "Must-See TV." But beyond the anchors of Friends and Seinfeld, and later Will & Grace, many, many other shows populated the lineup. Like, so many. More than you remember were stuffed between the 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. half-hour hits, hoping that their huge audiences would latch onto their lead-outs — and yet nothing ever really took off.
