If you missed the broadcast of the TV show "Studio 60", featuring Sting performing with Edin "Fields of gold", well, we found it, at least as long as it is made available. Enjoy it. Thanks CanadaAir :-)

Thanks Karel... now can we kill M. Perry and the girl and quietly listening AND watching Sting & Edin? LOL!!!
Studio 60 was shown last night (Sunday Oct. 15) and will be repeated tonight on Oct.16 on NBC; this series will not survive, in spite of Matthew Perry and others, very weak writing and plot line, which is about two writers who leave their present jobs and go out on their own. I agree that Perry and the woman should have been gagged so that we could have heard Sting and Edin without the inane dialogue in the background.
My apologies, I forgot to say that this program was shown here in Ottawa last night, and will be rebroadcast on NBC tonight (Oct.16) It was so frustrating, especially the terrible lighting and those droning morons in the background...poor Sting looked like a dandelion gone to seed with the backlight making his hair look white and untidy. Bad production all round.
Roger Friedman also had a few sarcastic words to say about the show:-)) Well, it is not that bad but I agree it is a strange concept...why all this talk about two musicians playing their asses off? That is not fair to the musicians.....
I agree, TarAncalime - I watched the program again, just to see if my first impressions were perhaps unfair. Unfortunately, I saw nothing to change my mind. I really like Matthew Perry and Christine Lahti, but the program seems jerky and uncoordinated, and the music was smothered by the ridiculous ramblings of the actors. Perry says he asked Sting to play Fields of Gold and that he loved the song then proceeded to talk over it! It was so frustrating to watch, wishing that the camera would go back to the musicians and that the actors would just shut up for two minutes! Nothing in last night's show has inspired me to watch any further episodes, these characters are too cardboard and I just don't care what happens to them.
I love Matthew Perry and Christine Lahti, I used to watch Chicago Hope preferring it to ER (not for the doctors... I looooove George and the the other male doctors there)but I shoud like to shot him while he talks during the song.... it seems to me a great waste of money and guests.....
I watched maybe 10 to 15 minutes of the show and can't say I'm impressed. If the writting didn't improve right after they wrote that episode it is in trouble... regardless of the actors and musicians that are on the show.
This is a common mistake tv producer make: good actors, good musicians, great guests..... but if you don't have a decent script, nothing can help the show to fly!!!! Same thing here in Italy: the private and the public tvs fight to conquer a famous name, a tv presenter, an holliwood star and so on, then forget to write a decent broadcast for them!
