Studio 60 gets pulled


Variety is reporting that NBC will pull "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" after next week's episode, in favor of moving up the premiere date of the new drama "The Black Donnellys" to Feb. 26.

"Studio 60" has struggled in the ratings pretty much since the get-go (plus it's stunk ever since the pilot), so the real wonder is how it held on this long. And hey, maybe NBC is so enamored of that Sorkin magic that it will pop back up on the schedule.

"The Black Donnellys" is a little like "The Departed" -- a group of 20-something brothers in Irish Boston accidentally fall into running a local wing of the mob. It's gloomy and a little unlikable, but at this point, I'd still take it over "Studio 60."

I tuned in a couple of times, but found no compelling reason to come back. 30 Rock is growing on me, though.

No loss for wear. Maybe they should bring Medium back their before ABC gets an ideal to put 'Men in Trees' their.

I would not be surprised if ABC did that in an effort to boost Mondays.
