Studio 60 to Go Silent(For One Night Only…)

We know that Studio 60 has a 13 episode order and the assumption is that NBC will want to air all those episodes to recoup as much money as possible.  They overpaid for the show, so they might as well make lemonade out of lemons.  At this point I’m willing to predict that there’s no way in hell Studio is gonna get a back 9 order.  It looks like the network is slowly making plans to get rid of it.

I’m not surprised considering TvSquad reported today that Kevin O’Reilly, head of NBC’s entertainment division may be on his way out.  O’Reilly bought Studio 60 during a bidding war with CBS.  His slate of high style, expensive programming has proved unsuccessful this year, aside from Heroes.  NBC is obviously trying to save Friday Night Lights, their critical darling, but it looks like they’re throwing Sorkin to the side to do so.

Seems like a smart move on NBC’s behalf.  Studio 60 has been nothing short of a disaster for them.
