Yes it’s hard to be a player when at heart you’ve always had a hunch, to bite the hand that feeds you is a scary way of doing lunch. But still when we walk in to this august and famous studio, we’ll be the very model of a modern network TV show!
Our Favorite Film/ TV uses of Sound Stages as Sets:
5/10: Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006).
Best Part: We, sort of love, everything that happens on this stage. But if we had to chose one — Allison Janney’s episode, when she hosts and everything goes wrong, is a great series of walk and talks around the sets and stage itself.

Yes, I did have Studio 60 stickers made #Studio60

Day 1: First Sarah movie/series you saw.
This show deserved a lot longer than it got. I mean, look at these characters! Totally real people! You’ve got Jordan, the business geek entertainment executive, trying to explain why the company needs Danny to cut 15 jobs despite the show being a money-maker for them. You’ve got Danny, the producer, who, being madly in love with Jordan, is trying to seem cooperative while still patently refusing to cooperate with her as his boss. And you have Matt, the self-loathing writer, sitting here having to listen to these two argue over money while he’s wallowing in his own ocean of pity over the fact that the show sucked tonight.
Was Studio 60 a “Hollywood show for Hollywood audiences” as many critics accused it of being at the time? To some extent, sure. But at the heart of it, it was a character dramedy, and Aaron Sorkin at his finest. You saw the deeper parts of these people at play within how they interacted with each other, and it was as close to real life as I think any of Sorkin’s writing has ever come. Because it was personal for him on many levels, between the relationships and the storyline. It mirrored his own life quite a bit. It felt real.
The DVR ratings showed that people were watching it, but nobody sold ad time based on DVR ratings back then, so the lousy live-view ratings were what NBC used as an excuse to cancel the show. Today they’d be BEGGING for those kinds of live-viewing numbers, as low as they were back then. Today they’d make Studio 60 look like NBC’s flagship drama. Just another in a long line of mistakes made by the Peacock.
