Joelmchale NBC picked up six new scripted series this morning and, I must say, my interest is piqued.

"Community" (a comedy about a study group filled with ne'er-do-wells, starring Chevy Chase and "The Soup"'s Joel McHale), "Parenthood" (a one-hour revolving around a single mom who moves her kids to her hometown to be close to her crazy family, starring Maura Tierney and Peter Krause), "Mercy" (a hospital drama told from the nurses' perspective, starring Michelle Trachtenberg and James Tupper) and "100 Questions" (a sitcom about a girl who's turned down multiple marriage proposals and reflects on her friendships/what she really wants from a relationship) all sound kinda good to me.

Of course "Day One" (residents of a suburban California apartment building survive a global catastrophe and must figure out what went down and how to move forward) — seems like a younger "Jericho" — could be really sweet or just stupid. But "Greek"'s Derek Mio is in it and I like him, so fingers crossed.

The only one I'm not so pumped about is "Trauma." Described as a "high-octane, adrenaline-filled medical drama about paramedics," it could be cool, but I don't think I'm a high-octane, adrenaline-filled sort of gal.

Relationships and laughs, that's what I care about.

And you?

Of these six NBC pick ups, what're you looking forward to? Let me know, so I can figure out what to cover, who to stalk… you know, all that stuff.
