Discuss NBC's 2006-07 line-up here.

NBC is introducing the "TV 360" digital components to its 2006-07 Fall schedule, with original and exclusive content ranging from interactive television to webisodes, all built around the network's innovative and new programming. Keeping with its rich comedy heritage, NBC is launching a new broadband comedy channel. DOTCOMEDY.com will create a community around one of life's universal pleasures -- laughter. Anchored by some of NBC's best-known franchises and library programs, this online channel will feature everything from classic comedy television shows to viral videos to renowned NBC late-night programming including content from Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, the first ten years of Late Night With David Letterman, The Office, Last Comic Standing, Dream On, Coach, Leave It To Beaver, The Munsters, and much more. DOTCOMEDY.com will also feature original content produced exclusively for the site including blogs, mash-ups and podcasts.
NBC Universal will also launch a FIRSTLOOK.com franchise for each of its online properties (NBCFIRSTLOOK.com, USAFIRSTLOOK.com, SCIFIFIRSTLOOK.com, BRAVOFIRSTLOOK.com and so on). Each site will premiere up to four episodes of their respective networks' series, in their entirety, each year. It will be a first look in the digital, broadband world before ever appearing on the linear networks. Full information is here.

This is great news and hopefully we get the entire NBC Universal classic TV comedy library. Amen, Major Dad, Gimme a Break, Charles in Charge, Kate & Allie and some others would also be nice! We will have more news on this when available, such as the full list of shows and when it is launching. So, now we have Warner Bros., Paramount possibly and now Universal putting classic TV online. Sony, Fox, Buena Vista, you better be next!
