Studio 60 and Men in Trees picked up

Great news, Tubers. We can all breathe a little easier. NBC gave the go ahead for a full season of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Hopefully, the full-season pick up will give the show time to score with the foolish folks who haven’t discovered this gem yet. NBC should be applauded for sticking with this quality drama, despite the fact that it wasn’t an instant ratings hit. After all, historically, some of the best shows on the tube had rocky starts. (Seinfeld, House, etc.) So, thank you to all of you who tuned in to Studio 60, after my pitiful plea. I’m sure it helped out in the ratings.

Another one of my favorite new shows also got a full-season pick up last week: Men in Trees. Thank you ABC! I fell for this quirky show from the moment it debuted, and now more people are going to fall for it, too, as it is inheriting the highly coveted post Grey’s Anatomy timeslot at 10 p.m. EST on Thursdays.

It’s been a good week for TV fans. To the network execs, kudos to you for sticking with quality scripted shows instead of going for the less expensive and much-less entertaining game shows and reality shows. On behalf of savvy TV fans everywhere, I salute you.
