Last night's sneak peek preview of Matthew Perry's NBC sitcom "Go On," which co-stars Tony Award winners Laura Benanti and Julie White, drew 16.1 million viewers overall, following primetime Olympic coverage. The special averaged a 5.6 rating in adults 18-49, according to "fast official" ratings from Nielsen Media Research.

While the special telecast gave the broad Olympic audience an opportunity to sample the new NBC comedy, last night's post-primetime preview of "Go On" aired without commercials and will not be measured in official national Nielsen reports and will not be included in averages for the night, week or season.

Misery loves company. Unless you're sportscaster Ryan King (Matthew Perry, "Friends," "Mr. Sunshine") who thinks misery should just be left alone. After taking some time off, Ryan – who recently lost his wife in a car accident – is now ready to get back to work. And while he seems like his same old charming, cocky self, his boss won't set him back on the air until he seeks counseling. So, Ryan reluctantly joins a support group with one goal in mind: get in, get out and get back on the radio as quickly as possible. Played by the fast-talking, sarcastic, and charismatic Perry, Ryan gives grief a real run for its money.

Within one day of group therapy, he hijacks the meeting and suddenly the downtrodden are cajoled into playing a game of "who's got the best sob story?" And in no time all of them are battling it out, trying to one-up each other's despair. Now, this is fun! Ryan's total lack of interest in healing might be just what this group needs – and maybe, exactly what he needs to move on with his life. Also starring are Tony winner Julie White ("Transformers"), Bill Cobbs ("The Muppets," "Night at the Museum"), Suzy Nakamura ("Dodgeball"), Khary Payton ("General Hospital") and Allison Miller ("Terra Nova").
