I must be insane then.

The one problem that Studio 60 is that they keep saying how funny the show was, how funny Matthew Perry is and how funny the lead actress is. At some point, something on the show will have to be funny.

LOL, i totally agree. It's a lot of things, funny doesn't seem to be one of them. More of a drama.

Since when has Mathew Perry been funny. I mean I sometimes laugh AT him for his sad attempts at being funny, but that's about it.

Seriously January can't get here soon enough so I can finish the Sopranos and Entourage seasons. Also another great NBC comedy comes back in January, Scrubs.

I don't know how Lost is that predictable. Maybe living in Hawaii (where they film) is similar to the show and therefore predictable?

I like Studio 60 but I thought the 2nd show was not nearly as good as the first.

C'mon Lost is the 20th century version of Gilligans Island.

Actually to be fair, I'm glad TV is finally pulling itself out of Reality TV hell, but it seems as though most of the best writers either committed suicide during the reality craze or went to do movies or commercials.

Speaking of reality TV, there's a show on MTV called Two-A-Days, which follows the football season of the Hoover HS team in Alabama. Focuses in on a handful of players and their lives. If you remember last year when ESPN showed a high-school football game on a Saturday afternoon, w/ a team from Florida w/ the top-rated HS QB. Hoover was the team they played. And lost to. That QB is now a Florida gator backing up Chris Leak.

Anyway, it's a fun little diversion of a show, and really shows you what high-level HS football is like.

The characters on Studio 60 are really starting to just annoy me. Other than the Bradley Whitford and Steven Weber characters, I think I hate them all.

PMD, i watched the pilot, and had the 2nd episode on my DVR, and still haven't watched it. I think i have no interest. I mean, i like intelligent TV, so i feel like i should give it more of a chance, but man, i think the whole thing bores me.
