One of KCRW's newer contributors, Associated Press TV writer Frazier Moore, is one of our favorites. Like many podcasts, we subscribe to his and it's always a delight to hear a fresh perspective on all things TV. Here is Moore on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip:

I have to marvel how this pales beside the real-life jam ABC put itself in last week with its factually disputed miniseries The Path to 9/11. Witlessly waving a red flag in front of every hopped-up liberal and conservative in the land, ABC was truly faced with a monumental public relations mess. By contrast, some unhinged producer mouthing off on late-night TV -- most viewers would dismiss that as refreshing diversion.

Which means from its first scene, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip exposes itself as being forced and phony.
