They couldn't kill this show fast enoughTragically, iTunes doesn't allow for negative stars. This was some of the worst cliche-driven, over-acted drama on television. Talk about programming for the lowest-common-denominator....Score: 1/5

Amazing TVLike Arrested Development this show knew its audience but its audience somehow did not know the show. What a waste. The writing is amazing; the acting is amazing; the production quality is amazing. Bravo to Aaron once again. He is the master..Score: 5/5

Great show, poor compression. HD please….Great show, poor compression. HD please…..Score: 1/5

The best show on TV. Period.Drama. Humor. Realism. This show is perfection for television writing. Hats off to the producers..Score: 5/5

I... can't think of anything clever.Studio 60 is one the best written shows that I've ever had the pleasure of watching. It's one of those shows that after you watch a scene of dialogue, it makes you say quietly to yourself "I loev this show..." Everyone's chemistry and comedic timing are perfect. Sadly, I knew as soon as Studio 60 and 30 Rock came out at the same time that one of them was gonna lose. You can only have two shows that have such similar plots. Though this is not 30 Rock's big sister. This is whole other monster. The comedy is different and there are some strong dramatic arcs as well. In short: A perfect show with not so perfect timing..Score: 5/5

Studio 60Love this show. acting, writing and direction. more quality shows like this, copilation of talents and creative efforts instead of the over whelming reality glut of "look at me" shows, extreme bingo and karaoke bar talent. Please..Score: 5/5

The world of SorkinI would love live in a world where Sorkin is God. Some how it's not perfect but it's a better version of what we have right now. The "charecters" is his show's are not perfect they make bad choices and get them selfs in trouble just like in this world but they understand what the important stuf is and regain focus after seeking the truth. So yeah...it's a good show. Worth it's money. Enjoy!.Score: 5/5

To this day..Studio 60 is still my go-to show when I need something I know is entertaining for many and well-written. Can only imagine how good it could be now....Score: 5/5

I love the way it sweeps you up and keeps you wanting to watch just one more episode!I cant beleive I just found out about this show!!!!! It is smart, witty, the right mix of drama and comedy. I love the long story arks. I love the way it sweeps you up and keeps you wanting to watch just one more episode! Of course I found it here, after it's death knell. SO not FAIR!!! Maybe the dvd sales & iTunes Downloads (of which I am one!) and reveiws on sites like this, along with the holes provided by the writers strike will make this show possible on another network, or make the original rethink the cancel... I mean we are less than a year from its last airing... is that really too late??? This time they need to advertise it right, and show people what it is really about, and FORGET ABOUT PUTTING ON REALITY SHOWS!!!!! this has more to do with reality than any show bearing that description!!! If the networks were more like NBS there would be ALOT better tv on the landscape..Score: 5/5

DAMN NBC for getting rid of the best show since West WingI loved this show! From the writing to the acting, to the directing, set design, camera angles, all of it. This show was awesome from the very beginning to it's abrupt ending. NBC blew this big time by putting on hiatus three times in its rookie season. Screw you NBC! Studio 60 was the smartest show on TV and you blew it!.Score: 5/5

Brilliant!Studio 60 is probably one of the best television series I have watched. Sorkin manages to seamlessly combine witty reparte and sparkling humour with moments that - for want of a better phrase - really make you think.

Stonkin' show!!Why did they not continue with this show!! It's brilliant, Matt Perry and Bradley Whitford in one show by the west wing team!! Fantastic!! Witty, smart, endearing and original - the powers that be allow so much crap into TV circulation and then let a great show get dropped!! Criminal!!.Score: 5/5

Such a ShameHate to sound like an echo but i have to agree what a great show having never watched the West Wing, i was curious to see what Chandler aka Matthew Perry had to offer, and wow how he delivered retaining the wit from friends but including a great elemant of seriousness made for a fantastic watchable performance. Throughly enjoyable and credit too the writers for not being scared to write how they felt about the state of affairs in the world. If the BIG boring BODS at WB are reading how about investing in the show again and proving too us that you do see quality when you see it. Real shame on 1 season but you never know, I highly recommend that everyone should giev this show a chance and trust me you will enjoy..Score: 5/5
