Studio 60 Returning in May

NBC has set a Thursday 9pm timeslot for the return of “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” starting May 24th.

The much-hyped Aaron Sorkin drama developed a loyal fanbase, but vanished from NBC’s schedule mid-February after consistently weak ratings.

Six episodes remain unaired, and NBC has yet to announce its specific intentions with the return.

The downside is that the airing comes the day after the end of May sweeps, and a week after the NBC upfronts which will announce the show’s fate next season.

Renewal though seems all but impossible now, the network is believed to be likely trying another new show in the problematic Monday 10pm timeslot which has seen little to no ratings this season.
