No, it isn't. That's the problem.

Best show on television. Can't wait for tomorrow night.

Don't be silly. The best show on television wouldn't make an issue out of a seven year-old book.

Did I miss an episode? What book?

WillieLee

It's on a day early in Canada. The 48 laws of Power. I can't wait for him to tackle the rise of 'gangsta rap'.

There is still modern relevance to be found in books published previously, be it 8 years, or 800.

No.

So once a book has been published, the ideas within are only relevant for what? a year? two years?

6 months.

I wonder if I can use this arguement against the christians...

Hock

6 months.

So I haven't actually seen the episode, but the ideas in a book like this generally have longstanding relevancy. If it was talking about controversy about the book itself, then yeah, it's a little late for that.

Nah. They pretty much re-write that book every six months anyways.

It's the latter. It's presented in a 'Can you believe what they're saying!' way that has been done to death with the book. Add on his rants about reality TV and the 'FCC is evil' angle(despite the FCC rules that allow for scenarios like the one presented) and you get plotlines that are rather dated.

I have no idea how an educated person could dislike this show. People who love American Idol more than life itself, I get their inability to enjoy it. It's the others that I can't comprehend.

Then stop watching the show. Do you stick your hand in boiling water and complain about the burns?

It's as misguidedly pretentious as Sting - when Sting came on and they acted like he was still relevant and then he played that horrible song, it was a perfect metaphor for Studio 60. All puffed up and yet it's not clever or funny - it's just presented as such.

It's never made me laugh once, and the character stuff is death. D.L. Hugley's speech about the gangbanger who told him to stay home from the gangfight should have killed the show for the rest of you, too.

The performance by the homeless musicians from New Orleans completely negates all the Sting wankery.

But I totally get that it is not everyone's cup of joe.

Absolutely loved this episode. This show makes me not care about watching anything else on tv. It's like when you meet that one woman that is so much of everything that you could ever want that you don't notice that other women even exist. This show is that woman.

the show is fantastic. the new characters, and there are shockingly many, are all fantastic. i am thrilled whats her face from the uk office is a player now.

i'd hate to be an actor on that show- you can be written off like that!

and the previews make it look like it's going to get worse.

This show is hitting such a great stride that it seems to be the fastest hour on television. The credits come up and it's hard to believe that an hour has passed.

Ding! That's when I stopped watching as well. I got sick of being told how smart the show was rather than being shown actual smarts.

Lucy Davis, Brian! SHE HAS A NAME.

But I am also glad that she's getting regular work, because I was worried that only Martin Freeman would make a splash.

I didn't think his initial telling her from before the hiatus was bad, but I have to admit that it did seem creepy last night.

How about the confrontation between Simon and Darius?

The Tom-Lucy stuff was very well played and quite amusing.

I'm still waiting for this show to hit its stride. To me, it's Sorkin's weakest effort; last behind West Wing and then Sports Night.

I still watch - for lines like 'it's like someone moved his food dish.' But it hasn't clicked yet.

And what the hell happened to Control Room Guy From 30something and Other Female Cast Member(s)? Haven't seen them for awhile. Why would Fat Guy get more screen time than them? He's not that interesting.

I disagree with every point made here. Sting's appearance was fantastic (and I'm not a big fan of Sting).

i think t-bus (as i call him) has been behind the camera for a couple eps... maybe that's cutting down on his screen time. plus they haven't done much during the airing of actual episodes of Studio 60 (the show within the show i mean) and that's when you're most likely to see the control room stuff...

I just started watching last night and I totally enjoyed it. I guess I can afford another hour to start following this show. Heroes and Studio 60 made for a nice end to my day.

Budget cuts?That'd be my first thought, though the fact that What's-His-Face has been directing and that there ain't been much stuff in the control room are also plausible.
