Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

NBC's new show, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, created by Aaron Sorkin, is an interesting look behind the scenes of a Saturday Night Live style of live comedy show.

I like Studio 60, so far. And yet . . .

Here's what offends me. If you're going to make a show about a comedy show that makes fun of the religious right (and yes, a couple characters expressed a desire to continue going after the religious right), shouldn't it be slightly humorous? I mean, it's a show about a bunch of comedy writers and comedians.

My challenge to Studio 60: if you're going to make fun of us, at LEAST make it funny!
