'Last Comic Standing,' 'Persons Unknown'
Premiere: Monday, June 7, 8 and 10 p.m., NBC
Why we're watching: Craig Robinson (Darryl on "The Office") almost singlehandedly got us in the theater for "Hot Tub Time Machine," and we're very curious to see him put his spin on the once-again-resurrected "Last Comic Standing." And, oh yeah, it'll be nice to see if the show can uncover talents like previous winners Iliza Shlesinger, Alonzo Bodden and John Heffron.
As for "Persons Unknown," we know very little about it save that it comes from "Usual Suspects" writer Christopher McQuarrie and stars Alan Ruck and Sean O'Bryan as members of a group of people who have been abducted (we think) and deposited in a location where they're under constant surveillance. There's a "Prisoner"-ish feel to the previews, and they've done their job: We're intrigued.
