The Media Guardian appears to have been watching Fox News or something. Following that particular ‘news’ outlet’s call that Studio 60‘s death was imminent, with cast members telling their family that it was all but cancelled, the Media Guardian has followed suit. Strangely though, it cites the one-week change of time slot for Friday Night Lights as the main reason for the call, despite the fact FNL only replaced a Studio 60 re-run.
It might have a point if NBC hadn’t just come out and ordered three more scripts and declared that the show was already profitable. I think Studio 60 probably has a little more life left in it and a probable time-slot change in its future. But its death is by no means imminent, I suspect.
