More scripts for Studio 60, but its fate hangs in the balance

NBC has ordered up three more scripts for Studio 60, but NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly has admitted he’s keeping a close eye on the show – as well as on Friday Night Lights and 20 Good Years (which has been yanked from the schedules until next year).

Meanwhile, ABC has ordered four more scripts for each of The Nine, Help Me Help You and Men in Trees.
