May 24 is after the crucial sweeps period ends, so this could be another sign that NBC doesn't have a lot of confidence in the show going forward. It's also odd that NBC's only comment so far is that one tiny line on the Web site. But I'm glad that if the show is ending, it will at least get to go out on TV — unlike other canceled shows this year, which got shoved online. Six more episodes of "Studio 60" were produced, and I hope they all make it on the air.
I wonder if NBC now regrets its decision to pull "Studio 60" back in February after just 16 episodes. "The Black Donnellys" didn't do any better in "Studio 60"'s time slot and got canned itself, and the premiere of "The Real Wedding Crashers" this week was hardly a blockbuster. Do you think NBC should have stuck with "Studio 60" from the start?
