Studio 60: slight delay

Looks like West Wing/Aaron Sorkin fans in the UK will have to wait just a little bit longer for new series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Wikipedia no longer has 30 June as the start date (it has 'TBC' instead), while the website for More 4 (where the series seems to have migrated from its originally-intended home on E4) continues to frustrate by including lots of nice cast photos but no transmission dates. Be thankful then for the Cult TV website, which 'exclusively' announces that the first episode will be broadcast at 10 pm on Thursday 26 July.

Further to this post: not all reviewers have been as enthusiastic as I was about that other new US import, Brothers and Sisters. Kathryn Flett in The Observer thought it felt too much like 'return to thirtysomething'. But that's exactly why we Sorkin aficionados love it. Talking of which: yesterday's paper also ran an interview with Ken Olin and a 'where are they now' feature on the thirtysomething cast. Has it really been twenty years...?
