B-12 is the tenth episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. It was written by Eli Attie & Aaron Sorkin and directed by Bryan Gordon. It premiered on November 27, 2006.



The cast has to get through the show despite being ravaged by a virus, and Matt has to get through the week with a new and much smaller writing staff. Matt calls in for the help of fellow former writer of Studio 60 Andy Mackinaw. Jordan reveals to Danny that she's pregnant. Inexperienced writers Darius and Lucy have a sketch approved to air for the first time, only to have it pulled at the last moment due to its similarity with a real-life hostage situation.
