Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful TV show without losing her mind.
This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
The title of this show was originally "The C-Word," and some promotional materials were made using this title. But while a guest on "The Daily Show," Laura Linney told Jon Stewart that the title was changed from "The C-Word" to "The Big C" to avoid confusion with The L Word, which had also aired on Showtime.

Mediocre trivial and cliché ideas about terminal illness. I love Linney but can't help wishing her obnoxious character would just die. The writers must watch so much TV they think this is reality. Her reaction to her condition revolves around materialism. Like most modern series it is a mixture of product placement held together by recycled ideas. Supporting characters add some interest but generally, nothing happens. There is no crisis, no resolution, none of the elements of a story. And forget laughs; this thing is about as funny as a Republican in the White House. Don't make my mistake and watch until half of episode three to find out there's no story. No, it doesn't get any better.
