The good news is that Studio 60 is finally coming to the UK airwaves

C4 Saturday 30th June 9pm

The bad news is that earlier this week C4 admitted that in this slot Big Brother couldn't compete against BBC/ITV.  So it would seem that C4 are already dumping Studio 60 (which is maybe understandable if it has been cancelled, has it been officially cancelled yet?) and not showing it on More4 as originally advertised.

I thought that was a Canadian airing?

Didn't C4 dump West Wing in a similar slot so should be aware there is no point buying imports if they are just going to waste them there?

As suspected this info was a bit duff.  Using the same unreliable source of Sky Magazine it's possibly going to start on

More 4 Thursday 26th July 10pm

So another month to wait but a better slot.

thursday at 10 is a better time slot, if you ask me. but ui'm annoyed we'll have to wait another month to see it.

Don't forget More 4 has a plus one - SKY 172. And usually do a repeat, though you may have to search the schedules for it.

Make sure you watch!

It's a great show. Brilliant at times. Never less that thoroughly entertaining, with the kind of ensemble excellence a very few productions achieve.

Saw an ad for this last night and was about to start a UK speed thread!!!

Why has it been cancelled, I thought it was doing well???  Is it worth following if they are only doing one season, does it wrap itself up or is it just going to be an annoyingly frustrating ending???

It's all a question of ratings and context. Yes a lot of people watched it and yes it was a critical success. But it also cost shed loads to make and so despite 'good' viewing figures it was felt that these weren't enough to justify the cost of the show.

As for the ending, I've got the last six epsodes downloaded but I can't bring myself to watch them! I don't want it to end. Hopefully the ending is handled well and not on a cliffhanger.

I haven't watched the last few episodes yet, but I'm pretty sure Sorkin said that he knew there was pretty much no chance of a second season so he didn't end it on a cliff hanger

Oh come on, where am I going to get my next Bradley Whitford fix from if there's only one season of studio 60???  The WW DVD's are going to give out some day soon!

He's bound to get something else fairly easily, too good not to, but this sounded like it fit him perfectly.  I can imagine he & Matthew Perry work quite well full time in a show together (better than the bloody awful rom-coms he does anyway)...

I watched this tonight and thought it was fantastic, after being disappointed by Heroes last night this came as a nice suprise although I should of expected nothing less from the creator of the West Wing. The opening sequence where the writer invaded the airwaves was awesome and I can't wait for the next episode to see Matt and Danny in action

Totally agree with Venkman here, it was a great start to the series with some inspired dialogue and classy performances.

great start to what looks like a really promising programme! the west wing is my favourite ever programme and sorkin is a genius so i was expecting a lot from this (the adverts were great too) and it didn't let me down.
 
i can't wait for next weeks episode!!

First episode was decent nothing more. High expectations rest on its shoulders considering to me that the West Wing is the be all and end all. I always think most tv progs take 2 or 3 episodes to really kick in so I will stick with it or just wait for the dvd. I just cant help thinking of the west wing which nailed me before the opening credits had even rolled with the 'POTUS' moment. I was hoping studio 60 would have a similar kickstart. Plenty of room for it grow though and the cast is great.

I thought the first episode was pretty good both Danny and Matt are great characters can't wait for next weeks episode though have to say I've never seen West Wing so perhaps I should seek that out as well.

Yeah i've not seen West Wing either and am tempted to have a look into it.

I only saw ten minutes of Studio 60 about 40 minutes in and really enjoyed it but thought there would be a repeat so i watched A Clockwork Orange intead.

that was brilliant. Watched it on the net and yet still I found it to be quite gripping. I loved Matt and Danny, great characters that worked very well together. I can't help but notice the characters are quite a lot like the actors playing them.

Still I will be watching next week.
