Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Brilliant and Original. TV's been waiting for something like this!
26 December 2006 | by oggy-3See all my reviews

In a time of Apprentice, Fear Factor, Bachelor and a dozen police/crime scene shows, Studio 60 brings diversity to network television. This is a very witty and thought provoking show, which offers philosophical views on many topics, relative to today's society.

We've seen how police stations, hospitals, and the White House work, now we get to see how network television works. The show incorporates a lot of self-irony and probably borrows a lot of material from real life experiences behind the scenes of network TV.

Like many others, I was afraid that Mathew Perry would not be able to put the Chandler character behind, but I was pleased to find out, that he did it, and he did it in style. I believe Perry has grown a lot as an actor and he is shining. The rest of the cast is also great, and so far it looks like this show has no main character - this has proved to be very successful in the past.

I realize that the audience of this show is naturally limited, but I really hope it stays, because I believe it has the potential to become a classic!
