    The name of the writer character played by Evan Handler, Ricky Tahoe, is a reference to a conflict that show creator Aaron Sorkin had with Rick Cleveland, one of the staff writers on Sorkin's previous show The West Wing ("Ricky" and "Rick" are both nickname variants on the name "Richard," and "Tahoe" and "Cleveland" are both American cities). In "Studio 60", head writer Matt Albie dislikes Tahoe and his writing partner, Ron Oswalt, and often complains about his low opinion of their writing skills. In real life, Sorkin and Cleveland shared an Emmy for writing a "West Wing" episode, and after Cleveland publicly expressed disappointment that only Sorkin got to speak at the ceremony, Sorkin posted a claim on an internet message board that Cleveland's contribution to the episode was negligible and that he (Sorkin) himself really did almost all of the writing work on "The West Wing," even when the writing credits claimed otherwise. (See also the trivia section for "The West Wing.")
