Matthew Perry to play Chandler Bing again, sort of

BING!Entertainment Weekly reviewed the preview of Go On, a new NBC sitcom staring Matthew Perry and their verdict: Chandler Bing lives, only this time in a new Community.
The show, which aired after the Peacock's Olympic coverage, stars Perry as Ryan King, a sportcaster trying to overcome a devastating loss. His boss, played by John Cho (Harold from the Harold and Kumar series), pushes King towards therapy.
A sample line:
“Therapy? It’s not in my blood. I go see a shrink, my dad will roll around in his grave. At least, I think he’s dead. We don’t talk about that kind of thing”
Could that BE anymore Chandler Bing?
King relents and joins a diverse therapy group that meets in a tiny classroom. The therapy group is ethically and generationally diverse - just like in Community.
This seems like a really odd creative decision. Community is critically acclaimed but can't get reach viewers. And now it has been moved to Friday night, a likely death sentence. I'm not surprised that Perry would fall back into his Bing ways, but disappointed. He's a solid actor but hasn't shown the willingness to take chances that the rest of the Friends cast has.
Are you going to give Go On a chance? Did you see the preview? What did you think?
Here is the trailer:

the first 10 minutes or so were horrid, but the end was good, hopefully the next few episodes wont be as awkward

No matter at all that he's Chandler reincarnated, we're happy to see Matthew Perry in anything. It's just a plus that this show is so sweet, warm, touching and laugh out loud kind of funny! My family and I love it, especially my 12 yr old daughter who claimed after 5 minutes that " I already love it".
