NBC, meanwhile, drives straight into a creative cul-de-sac with "The Village," which desperately wants to mirror "This Is Us" and merely provides a reminder that it takes a village, sometimes, to mess up a TV show.

INDIAN WELLS — It is the closest thing to a matchup of legends that the men’s tennis tour currently has: Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal. And it was supposed to be the centerpiece of Saturday’s schedule at the BNP Paribas Open. As they say in the business, never assume. The players did their part on the court in the days leading up to Saturday, but Nadal’s body – specifically his right knee – would not cooperate with the plan. Shortly before the beginning of the first semifinal, Dominic Thiem’s 7...
