I rarely agree with Dalton Ross or anyone else from Entertainment Weekly but I agreed with him 100% when he said,
"It's kind of depressing, actually. All people keep talking about is how dumb and predictable network sitcoms are, but when they actually go and put an original and somewhat complex comedy like “Arrested Development” or “The Office” on the air, nobody tunes in."
