I can’t imagine how CSI:Miami can be so popular – it apparently is the most popular show in the world – yes the world. Ironic since it is also the crappiest show in the world – but not the point.
If you’re tired of watching crap, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is actually worth your time. Aaron Sorkin has a rep for writing very intelligent scripts and pulling in great actors. This show is a lot like The West Wing in that it’s wish fulfillment TV. This time the wish is how TV should be. Matthew Perry and Bradley Whittford who play a risk taking but talented creative team brought in to save a Saturday Night Live type show from malaise (I wish it were real). Amanda Peet plays the network entertainment chief that brings them in.
Like any Sorkin show, Studio 60 has great dialogue. If you are a fan of shows like The West Wing or The Gilmore Girls – you’ll probably love this show.
NBC is replaying the pilot in it’s entirety on their website. Click the following link. (Studio 60 can be seen on Mondays @ 10 PM on NBC)

Deal or No Deal? No deal.
This has to be the most ridiculous game show ever. The poularity of this show is as telling as the poplularity of CSI:Miami’s is about the collective IQ of television watchers . Our cats have enough intelligence to play in this game – no strategy, no intelligence – just choosing random cases. America – you’re smarter than this (not really saying much).
