Critics and nay-sayers be damned, I still love STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP. Last night’s episode was a return to form for the show and only included, get this, one condescending lecture by Aaron Sorkin — this time about why Americans shouldn’t care about box office grosses. Aaron, love you, but really, please don’t tell us what we should be caring about. I love checking out the weekend’s box office receipts, and a lecture from you won’t change anything.
Moving on, AintItCoolNews.com got a shout-out on the show. I’m not one to nit-pick, but as much as I love AICN, the site is predominantly about movies. Aaron, next time when you want to give a shout-out to a prominent entertainment related web site, how about showing theTVaddict.com a little love? (How else will this site evolve into the behemoth that is AICN?)
Howie Mandell hosted Studio 60 this week. Interesting… Memo to NBC shows on the brink of cancellation. I think I’ve discovered how you can stay on the air forever. Just agree to always promote other NBC shows on your own show. (also see: 30 ROCK).
Last night’s episode gave Matt a new assistant, or as I’d like to offically name her: Donna 2.0. I called it from episode one, Susanne is the new Donna for Matt. Where that leaves Danny’s character (the original Josh) I have no idea. But I think there’s a strong possibility that Jordan’s baby may be Danny.
In every office in the NBC (sorry, NBS) head office, there are giant flat-screen TVs with the NBS logo glimmering. Do studio executives in (real life) all really have giant flat-screens with their network logo on it? Is the logo really necessary? I don’t think the execs are going to forget who they’re working for.
