As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

This went completely under my radar. Coming soon to Fox apparently.

Looks like a Galaxy Quest series.

Best zinger I've heard so far was in the comments:

Watched the first episode.

I think a lot of people don't know MacFarlin's work, because this show is EXACTLY what I expected. SO I enjoyed it.

I honestly forgot it was on. I've set my DVR for new episodes and will watch this one on demand.

Tonight's episode got preempted by football. On DirecTV my DVR recorded it at the scheduled time, though, even though the show didn't actually start until 40 minutes into the recording.

I wonder if this means on the second night, Fox made sure this show would have millions of fewer viewers, on purpose.

Cat... wondering if you could start feeding this show onto the Plex server. Apparently football season continues after tonight.

This is the first time you've ever encountered this issue?

I went ahead and recorded both shows after Orville to ensure it would record.

Well, last night was a bit exceptional as the Broncos-Cowboys game had a 1 hour interruption due to thunderstorms.

I cordially invite you to eat a big bag of dicks.

I've always known about the football thing because I watch football and FOX's Sunday lineup. Whether it was Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, or The Simpsons 10 years ago, I'd always check to see if they had the late game or not. (They do every other week.) In fact, the wife and I used to watch Amazing Race and stopped because it got too annoying to constantly alter recordings thanks to CBS also having that late game every other week.

It's also available on the FOX website (where your view will actually count and help it get renewed) and On Demand. I haven't checked Hulu yet, but I'm betting it's there too.

I looked for a Fox On Demand last night and didn't see one, so I wasn't sure if it existed. I.will look again.
