Speculative Review – New Monday Primetime Fall 2006 (Part II)

studio60pic.jpgAlright, it’s time to bust out another Speculative Reiview — where I pretty much review something that I haven’t seen yet. I’ve already covered Class, so now I’m taking this one to the wire since I’m looking at NBC’s Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip — which premieres tonight at 10:00 PM. Not to be confused with NBC’s 30 Rock — another new series that takes a behind-the-scenes look at television. Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip is probably the new show this season that I’m looking forward to checking out the most. The only thing is — I’ve got to stay awake for a ten o’clock show, which isn’t easy for me to do nowadays.

The “masterminds” behind this anticipated new series are The West Wing creators Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme. While I never watched The West Wing, I was a big fan of another Sorkin/Schlamme production — Sports Night, which also took place behind-the-scenes of television. Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip starts off with a line-on-air publicity nightmare on a late-night sketch show (something along the lines of Saturday Night Live). In order to save face, and the show I’m assuming, new network president Jordan McDeere (Amanda Peet) hires back former writers on the show, Matt Albie (Mathew Perry) and Danny Tripp (Bradley Whitford) in order to resurrect the network’s flagship series.

If the writing on Studo 60 On The Sunset Strip is anywhere near the caliber of Sport’s Night my bedtime on Monday night’s has changed from 9:30ish to after 11:00 PM.

I know, I know… I could always Tivo it, but that doesn’t mean I’d actually sit down and watch it at a later time. Setting myself with a disciplined television viewing schedule dictated by the networks is apparently the only way I can watch a series on a regular basis.
