It is nice to see Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is back. The quality of TV shows is declining when a show like this does not make it.
This show has not been getting ratings, but the problem with going by that is that they are not taking into account how many people are using their Tivo or DVR to watch the show.
When you add in those numbers, it puts it up there with the most popular shows on television.
The bad thing about this for the network is that the people who are time-shifting this show are the right demographic and have the most disposable income.
The networks are just going to miss out on a good revenue stream and rely on more reality TV. I just won't be watching.
Backwardfive.com has an interesting look at Studio 60 and how we should treat it. He is going to treat it as a novel and not be too disappointed when it is gone. I guess that is how I am going to have to think about it.
