What was the first wildlife featured on a U.S. postage stamp?

A buffalo, on a 1923 sepia-colored 30-cent stamp. Two stamps issued in the late 1800s depicted wildlife, but in secondary roles: a bald eagle was shown on the U.S. coat of arms, and a buffalo was shown being hunted by an Indian.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip vs. 30 Rock

In 2006, The West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin announced his hotly anticipated next project: Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, an hour-long drama about the writing staff of a Saturday Night Live–like variety show. Meanwhile, SNL actress and writer Tina Fey was producing 30 Rock, a sitcom about the writing staff of a Saturday Night Live–like variety show. TV insiders predicted NBC would only pick one of the two shows, and that it would likely be the one from the producer of The West Wing. NBC picked up both, but Studio 60 struggled to find an audience and was canceled after just one season. NBC stuck behind 30 Rock, a critical darling that won three Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series.

(I watched Studio 60 & liked it much more than 30 Rock. I was sorry to see it go.)
