The show's production logo features a picture of a shoe with the word "money" underneath. "Shoe Money Tonight" was the title of season one, episode ten of Sports Night (1998). It is a catchphrase that Dana Whitaker uses while playing poker with her boss, Isaac Jaffe. See more »
In many episodes the countdown clock in Matt's office jumps back and forth. Also, in many cases, after doing some math, it is obvious the clock is not accurate. See more »
Look, I hate Los Angeles just like everybody else, but I have to work here because in any other part of the country I'm unemployable.

Saw the pilot on NetFlix, and it's everything one should expect from Sorkin, Schlamme and this cast...sharp, tense, funny, and exhilarating television. Even if you don't care about behind-the-scenes drama or live TV or Saturday Night Live (which the show is based on), check this out...it's got a ton of drama, heart, and fun. Hopefully Sorkin will take time to develop each character. My only issue with the episode is that there's too much to cover, so we only get quick glosses of characters, but it's just a pilot, so it's OK to serve as an introduction. Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet, Brad Whitford, Timothy Busfield are all perfectly cast and show new range. Can't wait for the season to get going.
