I just watched Aaron Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

September 19th, 2006

And I have two questions:

1.) Shouldn’t a TV show about a comedy show be funny?

2.) And is Aaron Sorkin contractually obligated to use the same actors in all his shows?

    1.) Sorkin’s “Sports Night” had no actual sports in it. (It did, however, have Robert Guillaume. He classes up a joint, I tell you what.)

    2.) Bradley Whitford and Tim Busfield are the only carryovers from “West Wing.” But, yeah, he has a stable of actors he really likes to use.

    My question: Who among us really believes that Nate Corddry is one of the “big three” from the show-in-the-show?

    Robert Gullaume? I LOVE that guy.

    Why isn’t HE on the new show?

    And who gets rid of Judd Hirsch right off?

    Sounds like the show isn’t anywhere near “Sports Night” quality. Too bad. I miss it, even the re-runs.

    TV Land has regular rotations of the Robert Guillaume sitcom “Benson.”

    I can laugh myself silly at episodes I’ve seen numerous times, but Guillaume’s comic timing, along with a great supporting cast, is as good as ever.

    I must confess, I never saw Sports Night.
