Good news for fans of Nobody’s Watching, the meta-sitcom pilot by Scrubs‘ Bill Lawrence that famously found a new life in recent weeks on YouTube, where it’s been viewed 600,000 times. NBC (whose primetime slogan for the past two years could have been ”Nobody’s Watching”) has picked up the show. That means there’ll be more episodes, first on the Web, and eventually on NBC, probably in midseason. Meanwhile, Ben Stiller is probably kicking himself over his bad luck that YouTube wasn’t around in 1999 when he directed the pilot for Heat Vision and Jack.
