Studio 60: Is it or isn't it cancelled?

Yesterday, FOX news gossip Roger Friedman caused quite a stir reporting about the imminent cancellation of NBC’s Studio 60 on The Sunset Strip despite the fact NBC had picked up three more scripts of the Aaron Sorkin drama only days before. Today NBC shot back insisting in an email, which is how everyone insists, that the show has not been cancelled and in fact is returning to its Monday night time slot next week. Yet, they did buy only three eps...

I wonder if the insistent email was sent before the ratings came out for NBC’s special Monday night airing of an episode of Friday Night Lights that not only outperformed last week's Studio 60 but also was ahead of the 6.3 million that it did in its regular time period of 8 p.m. Tuesday.

I’m not sure how to deal with this news. Must Momma and Pappa NBC force us to pick a favorite child to survive this ugly, ugly intra-network ratings battle? Why can’t we all just get along and watch both shows? What do you think is going to happen? Is FOX Gossip Roger going to get it right? Are the lights going to go down on Studio 60? Comment below.
