If you're here, you probably already know what a fanlisting is. However, if you just stumbled upon us, you may be asking yourself what a fanlisting is. In a nut shell, a fanlisting is exactly as it sounds--a listing for all the fans of a particular item, subject, etc. In this case, this fanlisting is a listing of fans of the relationship between the characters Jordan McDeere and Matt Albie on NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

For those who are not acquainted with Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, or Studio 60 as it is often called, it is a new drama currently airing on NBC at 10/9PM Mondays. The show, created by Aaron Sorkin of The Wing Wing fame, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the politics, drama, and various people involved in making a weekly SNL-type comedy sketch show. The character Jordan McDeere (portrayed by Amanda Peet) is the new network president of the National Broadcast System (NBS), which is the network that airs the fictional show--also titled Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip--on which the NBC series is focused. One of Jordan's first acts as the new network president of NBS was to bring in Matt Albie (Matthew Perry), along with Danny Tripp (Bradley Whitford) to take over the troubled Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip>. Matt, who was previously a head writer for the show but had left during a dispute with the powers that be, is considered to be extremely talented and has been charged with revitalizing the fictional show's sketches.

Some of you may be wondering why I wanted to create a fanlisting for the relationship between Matt and Jordan as they are not as heavily featured as their respective relationships with other characters on the show. Quite simply, the scene in the pilot where Jordan tells Matt that he may open the next episode of the show (the first with he and Danny at the helm) with his controversial "Crazy Christians" skit is one of my favorite scenes so far in the series. I like the fact that Jordan, unlike many other powers that be, gave Matt the chance to present his brilliant work and to write the kind of sketches that he felt would improve the quality of the show. Likewise, I like that because of Jordan's actions, Matt is willing to give her the chance to show that she's not like the typical network head honchos--that she's willing to listen and work with those around her to end up with the best product in the end.
