watching Studio 60 right now.
the execs are arguing about the FCC fine for a soldier who cursed on the live news. I doubt the FCC would fine anyone. that's just crap. IT's the news. If no other other words could be used but a curse word then they will let it fly. A war would be an exception. Bono flinging out the F bomb at an awards show isn't the same.
So the guy from Wings calls the head of the network a moron because he's worried about this fine that would never happen. Ed Asner stands up for him and everyone votes to fire ed. in real life wings guy would be alone. no one would stand for that crap.
now they are talking about the arts and leisure section of the NYT.
now thy discovered a huge piece of info in the newspaper. wow! how cool.
this show is so bad. I'm embarrassed watching it. it's worse than the worse SNL sketch in the 30 year history.
now MAtt Perry is bitty for a date with a women that he doesn't like! But does he!
now the idealistic network exec who doesn't like bad TV is talking to the reality show person. she hates reality shows. b/c they are bad. in reality NBC is dumping written shows to have more reality shows.
now we are shocked that the reality show girl went behind her direct boss' back. surprise.
oooh! "uh, oh, there's another pretty girl at the dance and this one is not pregnant." OKAY! NO SHE DID int
now the ep is against saving money on sodas. the network gives them free sodas. Now they want to save money on the soda they give to the staff by buying liter bottles. The EP crumples up the memo in discuss. Was he mad about the free soda or that he got hid first memo on paper since 1998?
oh, no! The ep of a national TV realizes that he needs "letters of recommendations" from major directors like clint and steven to send to the woman he loves. who is the pregnant TV exec!
Now the black actor is arguing with the black writer. it seems that the famous black actor hired the nobody black writer out of obscurity and now the writer doesn't want to work on the black actor's sketch b/c he... i don't know why, but what i do know id if a guy hires you from nothing, you hook him up. this is also unrealistic.
now the Corduroy kid is nervously talking to the semi-hot brit writer chick. she's shocked. A male coworker hitting on you? Shocker. really? someone hitting on a hot comedy writer? never happens,
NBC promised this show would not be a romance but a show about something. I'm glad they fucked that up. this is bad, but so much better than before the rewrites and network notes.
now the wings guy is arguing with a Japanese guy about this non realistic FCC fine.
now the the female tv exec is in the network gym to apprize to the reality show person who's on the treadmill.
Ok - here's a funny scene about Japanese people arguing. the daughter wants to drop the promising career and hard work as a star viola player to do improvisational comedy. the dad is pissed! way pissed! the daughter doesn't understand why. Now, now this is real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The female TV exec asked the TV show ep to stop hitting on her. He said no. That's just creepy.
