  • Notes

    • The story about a show-writer stealing another comic's bit and having it air is based on an actual controversy from the early 90s. While he was a cast member on Saturday Night Live (which Studio 60 is based on), Jay Mohr stole a bit from comedian Rick Shapiro and submitted it as his own, and it made it to air. Like in the episode, Lorne Michaels confronted Jay with a tape of Rick doing the bit. Unlike the episode however, Jay had in fact stolen the joke so the show settled with Shapiro.
