Thank heavens for common sense: NBC blinked. Aaron Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip will not air opposite CSI and Grey’s Anatomy when it debuts this fall. They haven’t yet announced where it will air, but let’s all raise a glass of our beverage of choice to NBC for deciding not to cripple the show before it even got its feet under it. (They’ll be throwing an extra episode of Deal or No Deal in that time slot instead — I won’t cry if that gets slaughtered, and I doubt NBC will either, since the extra episode of an established game show likely costs them almost nothing, at least in comparison.)
Don’t worry, this can only help our plans for Sorkinalia.
