the end of studio 60 & starter wife

tink defined her blog as a crafting/shopping blog. i guess mine is more of a television/dreams/kvetching blog. last night, 2 of my new favorite shows came to an end.
studio 60 was an aaron sorkin creation that was dialogue driven and brilliant - think west wing meets behind the scenes @ snl. it was an ensemble cast with some people i really enjoy watching. matthew perry, for one, amanda peet, bradley whitford, steven webber...

anyway, jordan lived, danny signed adoption papers, tom's brother was rescued, simon was willing to apologize, matt & harriet got back together.

starter wife was a usa production that had the cinematic feel of all their other hit shows. debra messing was molly, the wife of an executive producer in hollywood, living the life. she works her butt off making sure that everything he needs happens. then he calls her up early one morning and says he wants a divorce. now she's left with a strange assortment of friends to help her regain herself and her life: the alcoholic best friend, the gay interior designer, the mom who has adopted children from 12 different countries whose husband just accidentally cheated on her with the nanny who looks just like her from behind, the super executive(her husband's boss) who asks her out then fakes his own death only to come back to life at his own funeral, the newly evicted security guard and her grandmother, and the hunky homeless ex-con beach bum who saves her from drowning.

anyway, molly and kenny fired their lawyers and split everything 50/50, joan joined aa and stayed sober for 6 months, rodney found his footing and became designer to the music stars, cricket found out she was pregnant and finally let go of the picture of her hubby and the russian floosy, lou and molly got together for real, then she broke it off, lavender became rodney's designing assistant, grangran moved in with mrs. coldecot, and sam finally gets a job and swoops in when molly is ready for him.

between the two i almost cried. i'm kindof sad that they're over, but they were resolved and i feel good.

It is sad how long a tv show lasts anymore on tv. They need to find a way to account for people dvr'ing shows because a lot of people do that anymore.
