An especially big mess for ''Studio 60'' in what, if I'm counting correctly, is its fourth telecast -- hence the title of this post.
Are we really supposed to believe that Harriet didn't know that was the baseball star's phone number? (And why does Sorkin insist on giving strong women a dumb streak?) Are we really going to have to sit through a faux Maureen Dowd? Is the show ever going to do a sketch -- or, in this case, a monologue -- that is genuinely funny? (I was particularly disappointed by the references to the show-within-the-show having had two good weeks; I had hoped that someone had recognized that it isn't really all that good.) And what sort of fake sunshine was that ending supposed to be?
Arrrrrrrrgh. But I'm sure Vanity Fair loved it.
