Studio 60

Studio 60 is perhaps the most talked about new show on television this year. And for good reason– it may be the best of the new crop, but also the one that fails to live up to its potential.
The problem with Studio 60 is that the sketch show (the show within the show) is not funny. It’s about as funny as recent Saturday Night Live. That’s not good. And that would be fine if the show didn’t believe that the sketches were funny. But the Sorkin-penned Studio 60 thinks that his alter-ego’s show is the most brilliant comedy writing since the Colbert Report. It’s not.
If the show realized that, it would be more believable. The actual show– the light-hearted drama show– would live in the reality-based community. And it would be funnier, too.
