Here we go: despite receiving an order for three more episodes on Friday, the Aaron Sorkin NBC drama “Studio 60 on Sunset Strip” is about to be put out of its misery.
Cast members are already confiding in friends that the end is near. It’s likely NBC will pull the plug shortly I am told by insiders.
Last week, Studio 60 had 7.7 million viewers. Compare that with competing “CSI: Miami,” with 17.5 million. That gap cannot be closed.
But ‘Studio 60′ has trouble internally at NBC, forget its intramural rivals. According to ratings stats, the “Saturday Night Live” behind the scenes soap opera loses almost half the viewers delivered to it a few minutes earlier by another new show, “Heroes,” which has become a surprise cult hit.
The Victoria’s Secret Angels will be returning the boob-tube in the always widely anticipated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Tuesday, December 5th at 10p ET/PT.

This year’s fashion spectacular will feature a runway presentation infused with a holiday theme and include red carpet arrivals and interviews.
