Well, for one promo at least.
Now that we have DVRs, it's tough to keep an audience from just fast-forwarding right past the commercials. If you want to know how that's prevented, though, the above promo video for Fox's new comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is a great example.
The clip (done in the style of a Mexican soap opera) introduces us to the "she's just not that into you" relationship between Detectives Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) and Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz).
Star Andy Samberg (who plays Detective Jake Peralta) also appears, as does Chelsea Peretti's Linetti, whose line, "She's got a type, which is really anyone but you," will probably go down as one of the best of the new pilot season.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 8:30 p.m. on Fox.
