This Sunday, NBC plans to air the first episode of THE WEST WING, before they air the series finale. Let me say how dissappointing this is to a long time WW fan. I own the DVDs, I don’t need to see the pilot episode. I would have much preferred a retrospective hour featuring cast interviews, favourite moments and clips. Way to drop the ball NBC.
To balance the above negative, here’s some positive NBC news. They officially picked up Aaron Sorkin’s latest show, STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP. Sorkin truly is one of TV’s most gifted writers, and with an all-star cast lead by Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford, the show cannot be bad!
If you’re going through Aaron Sorkin withdrawl, check out the pilot of his ABC masterpiece SPORTS NIGHT. The show features a pre-Desperate Felicity Huffman and a pre-Six Feet Under Peter Krause. It was one of those incredible shows that deserved a far bigger audience. Check it out below:
