Could we be any more excited about Matthew Perry's return to an NBC comedy? So, OK, "Go On" might not have the instant spark "Friends" did, but then again "Friends" was one of the most fully formed comedy pilots of the past 20 years. What "Go On" does have going for it is a very strong ensemble that also includes Laura Benanti, Tyler James Williams, John Cho and Julie White. And, for a show about a guy (Perry) recovering from the death of his wife, it's surprisingly light on its feet.
