Epitaph for "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip"

"Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" was a TV show created by Aaron Sorkin.
Aaron Sorkin is famous for creating a TV show about the White House.
He also created a TV show about a sports news show called "Sports Night."

While Sports Night was a show about a sports show, it was not about any actual sports. The emphasis was solely on the sports show itself.

Aaron Sorkin believed he could use the same formula for Studio 60, which was a show about a comedy show. However, he learned the hard way that while you can make a show about a sports show without featuring the sports, you cannot make a show about a comedy show without featuring any comedy.


EDIT: While Studio 60 will be returning at the end of May to finish out its season committment, the chance for renewal falls somewhere between a skinny cowboy and Mother Theresa -- that is, slim to none.

Resquiat in something, at least.





that was a guess; I can't decline Latin worth a tinker's damn
