Studio 60 on AOL

If I'm reading this news release right, it looks like the pilot of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, probably my most anticipated new show this season, will be streaming on today, a week before its television premiere. Mmmm...corporate synergy...

Time Warner Inc.'s AOL on Monday plans to announce that it will offer two new NBC programs on its Web site a week before their broadcast TV premiere.

The shows, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and "Twenty Good Years" are produced by Time Warner-owned Warner Bros. Television for NBC.

Oh right, and you'll be able to see Twenty Good Years a week early, too. Um, score.

I gotta say, though, I do love this whole "release the show before the premiere" strategy that's so trendy this season. It's a nice luxury for those of us with crowded TV-viewing schedules and no Tivos.

Thanks to the TV addict for the tip.
