Studio 60: Focus Group, Schmokus Group

If you’ve ever felt as if you were the target of some sketch on SNL, you were most likely the bulls-eye on tonight’s episode of Studio 60. They ripped on just about everybody:

First, there was the focus group. Jordan and Jack watch through a one-way mirror as a classroom of panelists got paid $40 and a sandwich to say words like “terrific” and “boring” and phrases like “it was too smart.” Uh, how do I sign up?

Sorkin’s made it quite clear that the Little Show That Could is doing quite well since Matt and Danny took over. But for dramatic effect, Jack -- channeling Sorkin -- decided to throw a wrench (à la one strategically placed statistic) into the whole operation.

Then, there were the Republicans. The question, “Do you think the show is patriotic or unpatriotic?” received a 50/50 split. Obviously such a question was merely a ruthless attempt by the religious right to put a spin on the goings-on within the “supposed” liberally biased entertainment industry. Or… is that just what they want you to believe? Dum dum DUM.
