* CommediaDellArte: Rarely seen but often mentioned, a regular sketch on the ShowWithTheShow, starring Jeanie (although it's not clear which of the roles she plays).

Nowadays largely known as Aaron Sorkin's FollowUpFailure to ''Series/TheWestWing'' and for being DuelingShows with the aforementioned ''30 Rock''. Funnily enough, this was the show that had NBC's hype machine behind it, while ''30'' was seen as ItWillNeverCatchOn. An understandably miffed Tina Fey included various {{Take That}}s against the show that largely ceased when ''30 Rock'' [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]] and ''Studio 60'' was cancelled. [[HilariousInHindsight Living in 2015]], we can say that Fey was right.

Work titles should be italicized, but not boldfaced
'''Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip''' is an 2006 NBC ensemble show about life behind the scenes at a fictional failing sketch comedy show. No, not the one with Creator/TinaFey. You're thinking of ''Series/ThirtyRock''. This one was the one created by Creator/AaronSorkin, was an hour-long, had a much more dramatic slant, and ended up lasting only a single season.

Given how one of the big criticisms was how self-important the characters were, 'less obnoxious' might be a bit contentious.
* AuthorTract: Inevitable with a Sorkin show, although not nearly to the levels of ''The Newsroom'' or the heights of ''TheWestWing''. Mostly it's about the processes of Hollywood and the stupidity of ExecutiveMeddling, which makes it less obnoxious.

* SeriousBusiness: They work on an {{SNL}} ripoff, yet Matt and Danny act as if they are writing an important Social Drama about Society's Ills. Sorkin's usual dramatic style, which worked so well on ''{{The West Wing}}'', might seem a bit jarring in this context... [[RealityIsUnrealistic which isn't to say]] that TV writers ''don't'' act like their job is more important than the President's.

* InformedAbility: From what we hear, Matt writes a transcendent experience filled with cutting satire that has everyone talking the Monday after. What we see is a very generic sketch show that falls far below expectations.

* MostWritersAreWriters: From Creator/NathanRabin's ''My World of Flops'' entry on the show, mocking the overly romanticized view of [[MartyStu Matt]]: -->"Even with a head full of bad chemicals and a belly full of pills, hes able to single-handedly write a peerless work of transcendent social and political satire everyone in the known universe will be talking about around the water cooler Monday morning. Writing 90 minutes of new comedy every week is a Herculean endeavor for even the most gifted writing staff; now imagine 90 minutes of brilliant comedy emerging anew weekly from the mind ''of but a single man!''"
