Mrs. U thinks that "Studio 60" would have worked better as a half-hour show, since there's no more than 22 minutes of good stuff in each episode.
I like "Studio 60" OK, and I haven't grown to dislike it. Last week's episode should have hit home for those of us who grew up in Ohio, as Tom Jeter showed his stick-in-the-mud parents from Columbus around the studio. On another board I read, some people from the midwest were offended by the portrayal of the parents. I was more touched by that storyline than offended.
I would have bet that "30 Rock" would be cancelled first. I felt it was more self-indulgent.
I'm starting to wonder if I'm a jinx this TV season. I was enjoying "Smith" and "Kidnapped" until they met their cancellation fates.
The new show I have
grown to dislike is "The Nine." I swore off watching that show after last week's yawnfest. Now that I don't like it, it will probably gather more Emmy nominations than any other show and be picked up for a full-season this week.
