Studio 60 Kills!

Studio 60 has the freshest writing my wife and I have watched in a long time.

You talk “no spin”, NBC has delivered a strong show that just might change some things at the networks.

No spin on the fact that the director relapsed and tested positively for “blow” and couldn’t get a job directing a movie for 18 months. No excuses, he told the truth, it didn’t reflect well on him, let’s deal with it and move on.

The writers came up with a very funny sketch called “Crazy Christians”. The original producer was fired because he tried to run it. The new boys were hired and were made a promise that they could run it. The network president kept her word even though some affiliates said they wouldn’t run the show. Some advertisers withdrew. The sketch was funny, but before it ran the cast circled up and said a heartfelt prayer to Jesus of which any Christian would be proud. (Stay tuned. It’s one thing to do a Crazy Christian sketch. Can they do a Crazy Muslim sketch?) And the advertisers who want back in when the show suceeds will pay 120% of their old fee as a form of coward’s penalty.

We must get a transcript of the lyrics to the opening sung to the Major-General’s Song from The Pirates of Penzance.!

Studio 60 stars Matthew Perry, Bradley Whitford, Amanda Peet, Steven Weber, Sarah Paulson, D.L Hughley, Timothy Busfield, Nathan Corddry, and Aaron Sorkin, formerly of West Wing, as Exec Producer.
