For some reason, the NBC just loves shooting bad television shows, ones with with horrible ratings, in the 415.
Comes now, Love Bites, which just had its national debut on June 2. It’s terrible.
But it’s been filmed (or taped or whatever) in town, so you might want to check it out for that reason alone. (Well, the first ep. had three vignettes, of which only the second is set in S.F.) Every scene from that segment practically screams “we made this on location!”
So you’ll see plenty of shots of the T/A Building and Belvedere Alley in Cole Valley:

Here’s the reaction:
“The long-delayed premiere of NBC’s anthology romantic comedy, “Love Bites,” failed to meet even the lowest expectations Thursday night.”
Check it out yourself here starting at 1:50. Yish.
Maybe it could be best described as a television romcom, like Friends except sexier and not funny.
No, it does not.
