Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip… Why?

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006


It’s not that I thought the pilot episode of NBC’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was particularly bad, but I do think that its very existence is fundamentally wrong.

Has Hollywood so exhausted its supply of original ideas that a television network would dramatize a show that is still on the air? Or does Studio 60 seek to woo an older crowd, specifically the boomers who watched the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players but can no longer relate to the comedy show that hasn’t grown up with them?

Or maybe people are actually interested in the mundane goings-on behind a light entertainment show? Whatever the case can someone please help me understand, because I’m quite honestly baffled here!
