A Black Day for Studio 60

Just when everyone was starting to get comfortable, NBC switches things up. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is being kicked to the curb a week earlier than planned so the network can push up the premiere date for organized crime drama The Black Donnellys. According to Variety, Donnellys, which was set to open March 5, will now commence Monday, Feb. 26 at 10 p.m. ET. The reason? The decision came hours after Nielson confirmed that Studio 60 somehow managed to reach its lowest ratings yet with this week's ep, NBC hasn't yet said when it plans to bring the show back for its final run of the season's segments, says Variety. The strategy? To give the new show an extra week on the air with the last new episode of Heroes before that hit show goes into reruns. Again. What do you think of this on-again/off-again relationship between Studio 60 and it's not-so-proud papa, NBC? Do a sense a Black boycott by Sorkinites worldwide? However you feel, you better tune in to the show next week. It might be the last Harriet-Matt-Danny-Jordan love quadrangle you'll get for awhile.
