Did You Know?


The title of this episode "What kind of day has it been," has been used as an episode title on every show Aaron Sorkin has created. At first he used it as the title for the season one finales of his shows, as it was with his first series, Sports Night, as well as with his second series, the West Wing. Here, however, as the show was canceled it doubled as the title of the first season finale but also, unintentionally, the series finale. For Sorkin's series after this one, The Newsroom, he opted not to use "What kind of day has it been" as the title of that show's first season finale but he did select as the title of the show's planned series finale at the end of the third season.

A perfect finale
23 December 2016 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Of course it's sad that 'Studio 60' only lasted a year. But whereas as many cancelled shows get left on a cliff-hanger, with the characters left in limbo, the upside of Sorkin knowing the end was nigh is that he could wrap up the show in style.

And he does. Every character gets a final moment, every plot is beautifully wrapped up with all the great dialogue and warmth that marked this show out in the first place.

It's easy to try to point out where the show went wrong. Yes, the move into politics didn't help, but lets just celebrate what a good show this was.

I absolutely loved the final exchange between Matt and Danny. Their relationship was the anchor of the show, and it was the perfect end for them.

Thank you for being brilliant, Studio 60.
