Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip Best T.V. Show of The Fall?

I once loved The West Wing. It lost me somewhere between Rob Lowe and John Goodman. However, I believe Aaron Sorkin is poised for a resurection with his new drama this fall on NBC. Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip is the none Tina Fey* made television show about the backstage shenanigans involved with making a late night sketch comedy show. Here is a very exciting preview of the show.(UPDATE: The video has been removed by a bunch of bastards.)

The show has Matthew Perry and former The West Wing co-star Brad Whitford as it's stars, but I'm most excited about the inclusion of D.L. Hughley and Nate Cordrey (from The Daily Show. It seems sort of shocking that NBC would put on a show clearly so critical of it's own network(seriously watch the preview, it's scathing). I figure since I'm really excited about it we can expect it to be on for a half a season or so and maybe we'll get a twenty episode DVD out of the deal.

*Tina Fey's show is still without a title but also seems to have been picked up for the fall. Unlike Studio 60 it's a sitcom.
