(Hey now! Been there, done that!)
Since it isn’t easy to generate buzz for one of two competing network comedies not-so-loosely based on SNL’s backstage politics, the one that doesn’t feature Tina Fey has launched a bloggeroony with name, font and format obviously lifted from one of Gawker Media’s occasionally entertaining properties.
yeah studio 60 used to be cool when the cast hoovered up coke in the green room with billy preston. now it is like watching skit night at a sorority house. no wait, that’s saturday night live.
shouldn’t a show like studio 60 have 2 showrunners? one non-sorkin to write stuff that actually makes people laugh and one sorkin to write self-indulgent pap for people who take the entertainment industry waaayyyyyy to seriously? that isn’t a rhetorical question. - – rupert pupkin
I heard that Jeff Zucker has a monster cocaine habit. I also heard that he’s only kept his job so long because he’s been blackmailing NBC CEO Bob Wright with photographs showing Wright in a compromising position with a Cambodian boy! (These aren’t facts — just rumors I’ve heard circulating through Hollywood). – Barry
I’d like to be a fan of Studio 60 too, but I keep running in to the harsh reality of Studio $6.75 – where janitors work full time for poverty wages and no health care benefits. Somehow a critique of the harsh corporate realities of the studio system doesn’t work as well when it is being put out by a company that is fighting its lowest paid workers’ efforts for a better life. – Steve
Is it true that Jamie Tarses got Matthew Perry hooked on Vicodin? I heard it from Matt Albie and Jordan McDeere. Boycott NBC and their advertisers. – Naomi Klein No Logo
