NBC officially picked up comedy Undateable today, which was in question before, as star Chris D’Elia was previously attached to Whitney. But he's not anymore.

NBC has also picked up police drama Ironside starring Blair Underwood.

    Sounds like winners…not!

    It’s got to be fun some mornings for programming executives at NBC to explain to their bosses why truly good programming on their cable network USA kicked their ass on NBC.

    Hmm, Raymond Burr is Perry Mason and Ironsides, I can’t see anyone else playing this part. Now if they wanted to change the title and keep the same premise, I might watch it. but most reboots are unwatchable for me unless they include some of the original cast and /or show respect for the original series and fans. Hence why I liked Dallas reboot and can’t stand H-50 reboot.

    Blair Underwood? This has Obama written all over it.

    For the entire first season of Whitney I thought that this was the guy from The Bew Adventures of Old Christine. When I found out he wasn’t, I was shocked.

    You are really childish and immature. Get a life you spiteful human being.

    I hope Raymond Burr is proud of Blair Underwood’s protrail of Ironside.

    Let the jokes begin:

    Unrenewabale?

    Unsuccesful

    It sounds a lot like Romantically Challanged, which was ratings-challanged :D

    @Justin121

    Undateaflop maybe?

  • Don

    If NBC is going to reboot Ironside why not try to pick up the passed up Beverly Hills Cop and put them on one after the other, say Ironside first followed by Beverly Hills Cop.

    I hope Undateable makes it to air so that regardless of how good it is there can be some good Unwatchable puns.

  • denroy3

    Blair Underwood as the new Ironside? Hahaha, NBC, what a sinkhole.

  • Justin121

    “Undateaflop”

    Ugh… Let’s not go there. Please.

  • Justin121

    Blair is a man!?

  • Justin121

    Blair Waldorf is laughing her *** of in her Upper East Side loft :D

  • a p garcia

    I will go out on a limb and predict that Undateable will become unwatchable.

    I can see Ironside working, with a strong lead like Underwood. Look at Hawaii Five-0, it’s still standing.
