Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

From previews, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip appears to be a more intense version of Sports Night. Thus, it’s good to see that I won’t have to wait for the show to do well in the States before it’s shown here in the UK. According to Wikipedia, More4 has the rights to broadcast simultaneously in the UK. Yippee!!
