STUDIO 60 is Coming Back to NBC

Just when you thought all hope was lost….

NBC is bringing back STUDIO 60! The remaining episodes of the season (and come on let’s face it…series) will begin airing on May 24th at 10pm, coincidentally the day after May sweeps ends. Yes, another schedule change, but oddly enough Thursdays nights is where NBC wanted STUDIO 60 to live originally. The show got moved to Mondays only after ABC decided to schedule powerhouse Grey’s Anatomy against it. If you remember, STUDIO 60 was the marked to be a major hit for NBC, so much so that ABC counter-programmed it with their top show. Funny how things work out.

It has its flaws but I’ve been pretty vocal about my love for STUDIO 60. I really enjoyed the show earlier in the season when the focus was more on the behind-the-scenes happenings and antics with a hint of romance thrown in. In later episodes Aaron Sorkin flipped the switch and made the inter-office romances the focal point, and the inner workings of the late night comedy show almost seem to be swept to the side. I’m not sure to to expect from the new episodes. I know I’m going to enjoy them because it’s going to be the last of them.

    YAY! I really like this show. I agree though, I liked seeing the happenings behind the scenes and not so much of the romances (I mean come on, they aren’t Jim and Pam…haha). Hopefully they just needed to get those up front and out of the way so now they can get back to the actual show. Thanks for the news! 🙂

    Yay! I’m really happy about this news. I really liked Studio 60 when it first aired but that class got in the way and I couldn’t watch it anymore. But now I can’t wait! 🙂

    I haven’t watched the last couple episodes of Studio 60 because I realized it just wasn’t a show that I ever would get excited about (like the way I wait for the next installments of Office, Heroes, Lost, etc.).
    I know that being aired AFTER sweeps is never good news, I have to say that I actually am alot more likely to watch this show after my other shows have ended. I think the show’s ratings might actually be a bit better when it’s on against reruns… unless ppl just quit watching TV for the summer, and ya know, do real life stuff.

    Amanda Peet was on Live with Regis & Kelly this morning and made no mention of Studio 60, so I thought the show had just been completely dropped and we’d never hear from it again. Thanks for letting us know that they are bringing it back to at least finish up the season. I really liked this show and I liked seeing Matthew Perry back on TV. I hope it does well when it’s aired and maybe it will get picked up for another season, although it’s doubtful.

    I am so psyched for the return of Studio 60! I really wish that NBC would have given it a fair chance. Without any promotion what chance do great shows like HIMYM and Studio 60 have? Oh well, time to soak up the Studio 60 love soon it will be replaced by the show “Looking for the Next the Deal or No Deal girl”.

    OK, I guess I’m happy about this if only to see Lucy Davis and Nathan Corddrey’s characters get together. Other than that, the last few aired episodes of the show were kind of crap. I mean, the whole baby storyline had some of the dumbest lines I’ve ever heard uttered on television.

    So why am I happy, albeit a reluctant happy, to be able to see the last of these episodes?

    I can’t believe the shows I love, vanish!! The same thing happened a few years ago with Sports Night!! Now they’re not bringing back Studio 60, what a waste. To think, shows that require no more brain power than watching someone swallow a live bug, or 25 abnormally beautiful women, cat fight over one bachelor, are renewed over and over. Sure “Studio’s” writers have unfortunately switched gears into love life hell, leaving the “making of the show” behind, but the clever repartee, (not so much with the mushy, Danny/Jordan banter) keeps me laughing. Please don’t let it go off into oblivion–what else would we watch, Ninja Warrior??!!
