Saving Smart TV: Studio 60

The three-part episode, "K & R" (kidnap and ransom) has been quite a ride so far. Interestingly, though, the blog chatter about this show has focused so much on its cancellation that hardly a note can be found about the shows themselves.

On that note, here is a wildly popular posting by Jack Myers of MediaPost's TV Board. He received over 1,000 (a thousand!) replies to this posting, which appeared June 15th.

Save ‘Studio 60′: Fans Need to Take Action
Posted June 15th, 2007 by Jack Myers

If the fans of “Jericho” can bring it back from the dead, why won’t fans of “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” convince NBC to bring it back for another season...

Lights Out for Studio 60

S60 fans, the verdict is in. NBC is cancelling the show. On a positive note, it seems that the remaining episodes that have already been produced will air in the coming weeks.

Here's a snippet of an article published on TV Newsday, where the NBC fall schedule is outlined:

NBC GOING SUPERNATURAL WITH FALL SEASON

ASSOCIATED PRESS, MAY. 14, 10:34 AM ET

With Heroes its only new hit of the season, struggling NBC announced a fall schedule Monday that includes a spinoff and three other dramas also trading on supernatural themes.

NEW YORK (AP) _ With ''Heroes'' its only new hit of the season, struggling NBC announced a fall schedule Monday that includes a spinoff and three other dramas also trading on supernatural themes.

The network took a risk by keeping its Thursday night comedy lineup intact. NBC has drawn strong critical praise but few viewers for shows like ''30 Rock'' and ''The Office,'' leaving the network faltering on a night it once dominated.

NBC, the first of the broadcast networks to unveil a new schedule to advertisers this week, canceled ''Crossing Jordan'' and the high-profile failure ''Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.''

Another critical favorite that hasn't found a big audience, ''Friday Night Lights,'' was renewed.
''Law & Order'' will be back for its 18th season and ''Medium'' will return, but not until January, when they take over a Sunday time slot filled by football in the fall.
