I still like it. I haven't really cared for other Sorkin shows, but this one is sticking for me.

No, the sketch bits aren't funny, but I'm not watching the show to get uproarious sketch bits.

I'm going to check out 30 Rock tomorrow night, too.

Mmm, Sting.

Oh, I'm sorry, was there an episode of Studio 60 built around Sting? Because all I saw was Sting.

There could be a double funeral by Christmas for both 30 Rock and Studio 60...

The nielson numbers for both shows are horrific. They both cost a fortune to produce and NBC is slashing costs. I would expect the ax to come sooner than later.

Hey, for Christmas sweeps both shows could do holiday themed shows in Chicago and all cast members could end up dying of some rare and fatal disease on the set of ER.

I like both shows

Studio 60 is good, but how far can it really go, honestly?

13-22 episodes is probably enough for me.

Awesome idea!

I haven't seen 30 Rock, but I've really been enjoying Studio 60. I'm with LMP though - I don't know how far they could take this show. If it lasts a season, I'll be happy.

I really like Studio 60. However, I'll be surprised if it lasts more than half a season.

I always find it interesting that even if a show has 7 million viewers, it's still not good enough for the network to keep on the air. Of course I don't know the cost of the production itself and revenue it makes (or doesn't) from advertisers

it costs something like 3 million to produce per episode right? or 7 million?

I love the show, and hope they don't fill it with another Deal or No Deal.

According to nypost.com:

STUMBLING 'STUDIO' SKIPS A BEAT
'FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS' TAKES ITS PLACE
By DON KAPLAN
Aaron Sorkin's behind-the-scenes TV show about a TV show is losing its time slot for a week.
October 20, 2006 -- NBC told "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" not to show up for work next week.

The network yesterday quietly gave the ailing show's Monday night timeslot to "Friday Night Lights" for one night.

"Lights" has also been chronically low-rated since its debut last month, but the critics'-darling drama about a small Texas town and its high school football team is going to get a second chance at catching on.

The same remains to be said for "Studio 60." It is only one night off for the show about a show, but it is not a vote of confidence from the network.

"Studio 60" had scheduled a repeat that night anyway.

Network officials insist it's not the end - nor even the beginning of the end - for "Studio 60."

"It's not a disaster," says an NBC source. "You have to look into the quality of the audience. This is the type of show that really targets and delivers affluent, upscale viewers."

But they do not say what will happen if "Lights" substantially improves in the "Studio 60" timeslot.

NBC insiders insist that, while both new dramas may be struggling, "Studio 60" is somewhat better off than "Friday Night Lights."

They note that among young, affluent viewers - those prized by NBC - "Studio 60" is actually outscoring the rest of the network overall.

"Studio 60" is loosely based on NBC's long-running late night sketch comedy show, "Saturday Night Live" and has been dramatically losing viewers since its debut episode last month.

At around $3 million per episode, it is among the most expensive shows on TV.

That is due in no small part to its star-powered cast which includes Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet, Bradley Whitford, Steven Weber and D.L. Hughley.

NBC was so eager to be back in business with "West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin last year that it committed to 13 episodes of "Studio 60" before even one frame of film had been shot.

So far this season, "Studio 60" has been averaging about 10 million viewers, but the audience has been dropping steadily each week.

This week, it was down to an all-time low of about 7.7 million.

"Friday Night Lights" has been averaging about 6.5 million viewers for the season to date. This week, it was up slightly.
