That's what's next 'cause that's all that's left...

Warning - huge studio 60 spoiler. If you're hanging on for the day when More4 screens this in the UK then you may not want to watch this[1]:

If you've seen it, you'll know what the title of this post refers to (see about 2"20-2"55 in the clip). And I can't help thinking about the latest pitch from Channel 4's favourite production company, or Channel 4's latest bid for controversy. How can More4 (4's sister "grown up" channel) show Studio 60 with a straight face?

[1] If the clip is pulled or you can't see it and want to know what I'm referring to (and are not afraid of spoilerage) see the on air tirade.

It can't have escaped anyone's notice that the kidney donor show was a spectacular hoax. The fact that the those involved thought that the best way to publicise this issue was with a cross between "Pop Idol" and "The Running Man" ("Any Death Will Do"?) says a lot about what Endemol think of their audience. And the fact that I'm not the only sucker to fall for this says a lot more about what the audience thinks of Endemol.
