Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip has yet to prove itself.
28 September 2006 | by MovieAddict-1See all my reviews

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is not just another sitcom. It begins with the pilot episode riding in the wake of West Wing's huge success, and continues the energy and enthusiasm into the second episode. Although it shares many commonalities with its predecessor, I believe that it still has yet to prove it's self as a sitcom worthy of its prime time spot and outrageous hype. The character base is wide and diverse, and with the exception of the two main actors, the quantity of talent will not cover up the lack of quality. I believe that although it is riding upon the coat tails of popularity created by other hit television series created by Aaron Sorkin, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" still has to prove itself.
