full-season orders for shows we thought were dead

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip has received a full-season order, but expect it an annoucement that it will be moved soon. Even at its worst, the hour is still better than most shows. That doesn't mean it hasn't been disappointing.
Also defying predictions (mine in particular), Men in Trees (aka The Deadliest Heche) has been given a full-season order and will move to Thursdays at 10 starting Nov. 30.
Even worse? "What About Brian" has been picked up for the full season by ABC. I don't know why.

Speaking of NBC studios, a few "unfortunate" lines from Weekend Update on SNL:
POEHLER -- "Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman won re-election as an Independent, and is expected to be courted by both Democrats and Republicans. Though it remains to be seen which Lieberman will show up in the Senate: the dull and boring Lieberman or the boring and dull Lieberman."
MEYERS -- "A man in Florida survived a gunshot to the chest thanks to two small Bibles in his shirt pocket. So I stabbed him."
MEYERS -- "Today is Veteran's Day, so that won't affect anyone in the White House."
