Contrary to a FOX ‘News’ report, STUDIO 60 has not been cancelled. According to MediaDailyNews, an NBC representative said in an email that the show “is profitable at this point”, and has yet to be cancelled. Recently the network has ordered three more episodes of the show.
STUDIO 60 fans can take solace in the fact that NBC might stick with the show just because of the high income audience the show attracts. Through Oct. 8, it ranked fourth among all network shows in median income for the 18-to-49 demo at $66,000. Another is the show’s perceived status as high-brow “West Wing-style” entertainment, a brand image that NBC continues to pursue.
