In fact, according to producer Daniel "Danny" Tripp, Matt had actually been writing the show since , while Wes spent most of his time in his office "getting old. NBC executives obviously think a series about backstage life at a sketch-comedy show like its own "Saturday Night Live" -- one of the all-time great television institutions -- is a good idea, such a good idea that they have two of them on the fall bill. The notion that TV turns us all into numb, lumbering zombies is almost as old as the medium itself. Studio 60 suffered from the same problem. Meanwhile, Danny began to develop a romance with Jordan McDeere, who continued to rile Jack with her distaste for unscripted television and commitment to cerebral programming.

My special guest blogger couldn't make it. Some smart people I respect argue that it isn't necessary. I stopped at a stop sign at Ryan Road and Evergreen Mill, and there it was, just grazing by the side of the road, so I hopped out, cooing endearments, and as soon as I got close enough, blam!

But we have been here before, and I wish to thank Lance for his continuing attempt to make The Scarsdale TV Doctor's current show more interesting. I'm pages into it, it's flippin' great, but I've had to start a running list of characters -- now Darby Suckling, that's the "mascotte" on the airship Inconvenient? He's reworking a plot ER must trot out at least once a season? Every few years the networks take turns failing to make this premise interesting. I'm back though and listening.
