An interesting moment for Sarah Silverman this year was the release of the 2012 pilot she co-wrote and starred in for NBC, “Susan 313.” More than a year after the Peacock passed on the 20th Century Fox TV production, Silverman received permission to post it online, revealing a show with great idiosyncratic promise … that seemingly had no business being on a broadcaster trying to grow its audience like NBC.

“I don’t feel like any frustration about it,” Silverman says. “I don’t think I want to do 22 of anything a year. Network TV is just not the place for me. But it was good. I worked with all my friends, and it was neat to do something different.”

Without hesitation, however, Silverman acknowledges the pilot was problematic for NBC, from her perspective as well as theirs.
