In a sort of navel-gazing way, MSNBC has an aritcle on having two series on NBC that reference a third series on the same network: The fall’s most-talked-about new show: ‘Studio 60’.
eta: Three(!?!) edits for a single post?

Those ads have started in earnest on NBC now, haven't they. I'm liking the Cal-centered one. I need Netflix to send me the damn pilot (of course, that means I have to send them something back first).

- The first thing you need to know about 'Studio 60' is that Lorne Michaels, the grand pooh-bah of 'Saturday Night Live,' is not happy about it." Really? I thought the first thing most people would want to know is whether S60 is any damn good or not.
- I don't know that I'd call Judd Hirsch's rant a "nervous breakdown."
- I know I wouldn't describe Sarah Paulson's character as "the ingénue."
- He claims Danny is Sorkin's stand-in, rather than Matt.
- "I think she’s [Peet] supposed to be Jamie Tarses, who was at ABC for a minute, possibly when Sorkin had 'Sports Night' — starring Huffman — on the air." First, he thinks Jamie was the inspiration for Jordan? Oh, I forgot, people at Fox don't read or watch any other media -- they're the only ones that exist. Second, three years as a network entertainment president is "a minute?" Third, "possibly" when SN was on the air? He's right -- her last year at ABC was the show's first -- but he doesn't know he's right, and says so!
And on and on. It's fine, I suppose, that he doesn't think the show is funny -- that's a personal opinion, and as immaf notes, the show isn't a comedy -- but it kills me that he compares S60 to My Favorite Year, which was a comedy. That's like saying "I like watching SportsCenter, but Sports Night doesn't show me enough sports highlights, so I don't like it."
"All hacks, off the stage, now!"

I agree with Alan Swann, I don't care that you don't like it, that's just opinion, but it was like that WW article were they claimed that Josh and Donna didn't end up together and that we never found out what was going to happen to Charlie, which was patently untrue. Actually do some research or pay attention please. I don't expect you to be an expert, but if you claim to be a television journalist at least watch shows exclusively instead of playing World of Warcraft or whatever you were obviously doing instead of paying attention.

All we do know from the pilot is that Hirsch gets mad because something “controversial” gets cut. (They don’t say what it was.) We do know there’s one bad skit called “Peripheral Man,” but we don’t see it.
First, it's "Peripheral Vision Man," not "Peripheral Man." Second, at least two conversations describe the cut sketch to some degree, and Harriet names it in her conversation with Matt.
That's not even fact-checking -- it's just reporting accurately what he sees. Total hack.

I think that's a very valid point. Josh got away with his cockiness and smugness because at the end of the day he was fighting the good fight. I don't think it will be as charming if he's fighting for a sketch show plus, on a personal note, the idea of Whitford portraying a drug adddict just makes me gag for some reason.
Much like “The West Wing,” the characters talk a lot and they talk fast. They say everything as if it has great importance, and it’s all either an epiphany or a revelation. This worked on “The West Wing” because what hung in the balance was the nation, the presidency and democracy. Here, very little is at stake, unless of course you’re an advertiser on “Studio 60.” The show itself is not funny at all, and captures none of the humor of a comedy show. In fact, it’s deadly serious.
