Storyline

A fever-based illness runs through Studio 60, putting the rehearsals and show itself in jeopardy. Matt brings in former co-writer Andy, a deadpan friend who has the magic touch to whip Lucy and Darius into productivity. Harriet will be honored at a banquet, and struggles to tell a simple joke. Jordan finally grants an interview, but is all too honest; Jack stops just short of formally firing her. She announces her pregnancy by fainting into Danny's arms. Howie Mandel is guest host; we finally get to see one full sketch when Danny comes on stage to parody "Deal or No Deal" in the monologue. The cast loosen up backstage, and even the partial sketches are amusing. Written by norcekri

Andy Mackinaw: Actually it ran short. No one had to hold for laughter.
Darius Hawthorne: Come on, let's get out of here.
Andy Mackinaw: Wait here a minute.
Darius Hawthorne: For what?
Andy Mackinaw: The metaphor.

A great episode, with a shock twist
31 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite episodes of 'Studio 60' as it has so much going on.

We see Jordan punt an interview with a journalist, having tried to launch a charm offensive, and the cast try to cope with a sickness bug going around, whilst also dealing with the fact that they have a very depleted writing staff.

I thought Matthew Perry was great in this episode, and again showed that he is capable of playing other characters than just 'Chandler' on 'Friends'. His dynamic with Bradley Whitford's Danny is superb.

A great episode, with a shock twist.
