The mind behind Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine has accomplished something wonderful with NBC's new 30-minute comedy 'The Good Place.'

You can’t swear in The Good Place. In this heaven-but-not-quite-Heaven, each unapproved word or phrase has a friendlier alternative, like “bullshirt,” “motherforker” and “ash hole.” If you’re negative at all, the universe responds in kind, sometimes creating sinkholes, sometimes sending shrimp flying through the air. There is a frozen yogurt store on every block.

If sitcoms and Prohibition-era dramas aren't your thing, you'd do well to tune into these superhero and comic book-themed shows hitting the airwaves this fall.

Whether you're a Marvel aficionado or a DC diehard, this fall's TV season has at least one show for you. But taking a quick look at the lineup — which includes three brand new shows centering around the background legends of The Flash, Batman and John Constantine (yes, that Constantine) — it's quite possible you'll have several programs competing for your favorite. Don't believe it?
