Holy jeebus! New shows canceled, old shows revived, fathers and mothers cast, animated characters stripping for money, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria! Or just mass media. It's hard to tell the difference sometimes.
Those of you hoping to get your Aaron Sorkin fix on Broadway may have to go back to reading Sports Night recaps -- his play about the (alleged?) creator of television, Philo Farnsworth, "has shuttered for now" due to the Broadway strike.
Frazier Moore's AP story makes much of Farnsworth's persistently bad luck -- didn't get credit for his invention; died penniless -- and how the strike's effect on the show is yet another iteration of same. But if fickle fortune is punishing anyone, I suspect it's Sorkin himself, for sins of hubris related to the sublimely frustrating and obnoxious Studio 60.
